Description

This easy & delicious Raw Chocolate Frosting Recipe can be made quickly in your Vitamix Blender & enjoyed on your favorite desserts! Perfect for Raw Chocolate Pudding or Fondue!


Ingredients

Scale

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:

  • 1/2 Cup Milk Alternative (I used Almond or Coconut Milk)
  • 1 Teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1/4 Cup Raw Cacao Powder OR Unsweetened Cocoa Powder OR Unsweetened Carob Powder

Instructions

  1. Place the Cashews & Dates into a small bowl and place just enough water to cover them. Let soak for approx. 1/2 – 1 hour.
  2. Once the Nuts & Dates are done soaking, drain the water and scoop them into the Vitamix
  3. Add the Milk & Vanilla, then give the ingredients a quick blend blend on Variable Speed 10 until smooth.
  4. Stir in the Unsweetened Cocoa 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 or pudding. Use immediately if you want a warm Chocolate Fondue.
  6. Refrigerate until ready to serve & store any left overs in Fridge.
  7. For an extra Stiff Frosting, use less liquid.

Notes

If you’re allergic to cashews, try┬ásubstituting them for Sunflower Seeds or SunButter!
