Raw Chocolate Frosting in the VitaMix

One of my major pet peeves is licking your fingers… but I may have to make an exception for this recipe!  It’s a Raw Chocolate Frosting Recipe that is Sugar Free, Dairy Free, Gluten Free & sooooo creamy it might convince you never to use the store-bought stuff again!  Plus it only uses 5 easy & natural ingredients.

The best part is that you can use this same recipe to make a Raw Chocolate Fondue and/or a Raw Chocolate Pudding!  Or you can just make out with the spatula like I do! =)

Raw Chocolate Frosting in the VitaMix

All ingredients I used in the video were Raw & Organic.

Soak Ingredients:

  • 3/4 Cup Cashews (this gives it the creamy, dreamy taste!)
  • 5 Dates (pits removed)
  • Just Enough Water to Cover the Soaked Ingredients in a Bowl

Other Ingredients:


  1. Place the Cashews & Dates into a small bowl and place just enough water to cover them. Let soak for approx. 1 hour.
  2. Once the NutsDates are done soaking, drain the water and scoop them into the VitaMix
  3. Add the Nut Milk & Vanilla, then Give the ingredients a quick blend Blend on Variable Speed 10 until smooth.
  4. Stir in the CacaoCocoa or Carob Powder and Blend again on High until all ingredients are smooth.  You may need to stop & scrape the sides of the VitaMix once or twice until everything is evenly blended.
  5. Refrigerate for approx. 1 hour before using as a frosting.  Use immediately if using the mixture as a Raw Chocolate Fondue.
  6. For an extra Stiff Frosting, use less liquid.

Yields:  Approximately 1 1/2 cups of Frosting

Preparation & Cooking Time: 5 Minutes Prep (after 1 hour Soak).

    Thank you sooooo much for posting this recipe! I’ve been missing frosting. In addition to all the artificial ingredients the store-bought frostings contain, they all also have trans fats! All of them! (Or at least, any that I’ve longingly looked at.) :) It will be so nice to finally be able to indulge a little again. I might find myself making out with the spatula right along with you, Erika!

      You’re welcome & thanks for the comment… It’s good to know I’m not the only one willing to make a fool of myself for frosting! LOL! =) Enjoy & God Bless! ~Erika

      LOL! I’m assuming you mean how do I get the frosting out? I use a thin spatula… and let the kids get the last little bit on the bottom with a long spoon! It’s a win-win for everyone! God Bless! ~Erika

      Aloha Erin!

      Can you eat tree nuts? If so, you could try this recipe with almonds or walnuts – but you would need to soak the almonds a bit longer. Unfortunately, the mixture might not be so creamy… but still delicious! =)

      God Bless!

    Hi Erika, I have my Vitamix, so now it’s my turn to make a fool of myself as well. I am about to go and get my frosting prepared right now, so now I will have a friendly frosting for my personal chocolate cake…it looks so mouth watering. Thanks Erika for this beautiful frosting, and all of your lovely recipes.

    This is phenomenal. My daughter is hypoglycemic like me and a total choco-holic (also like me). I just made some vegan cupcakes and this frosting and had to have my three year old take the spatula of frosting out of my hand! We are omnivores, but just got a Vitamix to aid our mission to eat more plant foods. Yea Vitamix! Yea Erika! Thank you…
