During sophomore year of college, my favorite roommate introduced me to the idea of eating Pillsbury chocolate frosting straight from the jar.

With a spoon.

Like ice cream.

(Guess why she was my favorite roommate…)

Obviously this was not the healthiest habit, although it embarrassingly fit right in with the rest of my all-carbs-all-sugar college diet.

I created the following recipe as a healthier alternative, and years later it’s still one of my favorite recipes, because you can use it in so many different ways.

Hint: It’s great on top of these Sweet Potato Brownies

My personal favorite way to make the recipe is with peanut butter, because it will taste like eating a Reeses peanut butter cup!

If you want a more neutral flavor, simply use almond butter, cashew butter, sunflower butter, or even coconut butter instead of peanut butter.

Secretly Healthy Chocolate Frosting Recipe
  • 1/2 cup almond butter (pr peanut butter, or allergy friendly sub)
  • 4 – 6 tbsp pure maple syrup, honey, or agave (or here’s a keto version)
  • 1/4 cup regular or dutch cocoa powder
  • 4 – 5 tbsp milk of choice
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • Blend everything together until completely smooth. It’s smoothest if you use a blender or food processor but can technically be done by hand if needed. Store leftover frosting covered in the fridge.View Nutrition Facts
