I seen it on a show where instead of icing...you take avacado and organic cocca powder..mix and spread.
Worth a shot. I'm going to try it out before DD bday. Might do her cake with it
Anyone try this?

I've actually baked cupcakes using avocado, don't even know that it's in there.  What is cocci powder?  Is it like cocoa powder?  I want to try it as well.

I've made chocolate pudding out of avocado so I would guess it would taste good as frosting.  It does need some sort of sweetner(honey/sugar/stevia) IMO.

Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes

Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes

I got this recipe from the free Whole Foods mini magazine at the Town and Country Whole Foods in Missouri. They really have some great and healthy recipes in them. This recipe is a really yummy vegan cupcake with avocado in it. It tastes really great and you would NEVER know there was avocado in the cupcake unless you were told. Enjoy!

Ingredients

1  1/2 cups           all purpose flour
3/4 cup                unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp                       baking powder
3/4 tsp                  baking soda
3/4 tsp                  salt
1 California avocado, pitted and peeled
1 cup                     maple syrup
3/4 cup                plain almond milk (or any plain nut milk)
1/2 cup                safflower oil
2 tsp                      vanilla extract

Directions

To make cupcakes: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 12-cup muffin pan with paper liners. Whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in bowl. Puree avocado in food processor until smooth. Add maple syrup, almond milk (or other milk alternative), oil and vanilla, and blend until creamy. Whisk avocado mixture into flour mixture.

Spoon batter into prepared cupcake cups. Bake 25 minutes, or until wooden toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Cool and eat!
