Divine Vegan Chocolate Frosting.

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Holiday, Chocolate

 Ingredients List

  • 1 can regular coconut milk (light versions won't work, here)
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract (optional - a mint version would be great, too!)
  • Sweetener to taste (sugar or sugar substitutes will work)


Open an unshaken can of coconut milk and allow to stand, uncovered, in the fridge overnight. (If you're worried about spills, you can transfer to a bowl, but don't cover it and, whatever you do, don't shake it). This should allow your coconut milk to become very, very, very thick (think chilled butter consistency).

Once your milk has thickened, scoop the thick top layer into a medium mixing bowl, using a spoon. The coconut milk will have separated, leaving a watery mixture at the bottom of the can. For extra thick frosting, try to add as little of this watery bit as possible (a spoonful or two is fine - the rest can be added to curries or mixed into a refreshing milkshake). Stir in the cocoa, extracts and sweeteners until smooth and well combined.

Pipe into shot glasses and serve immediately, or use to frost your favorite cake. Store frosted cake in refrigerator until about 10-15 minutes before serving.
