Chocolate Sweet Potato Frosting
Print Recipe
I had to make it and taste it to believe it. Sweet potatoes as the main ingredient chocolate frosting? Truth be told...it's delicious! Like most of my recipe experiments and creations, after it passes my inspection I test it out on my family. If they like it - it's a winner. The kids needed proof there were sweet potatoes in this frosting. I showed them the video of me preparing the frosting below. They were in disbelief!

Ingredients
  • 3 sweet potatoes (small to medium sized) cooked and peeled
  • 1-3 Tbsp almond milk gradually added to thin frosting
  • 2-4 Tbsp honey depending on your sweet-tooth
  • 1 1/2 C chocolate chips choose dark, semi sweet or milk. I prefer 1/2 dark/semi sweet
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 teas sea salt
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/4 C peanut butter
Instructions
  1. Start by cooking the sweet potatoes. Let cool. Remove skin and place in food processor to puree.
  2. Gradually add 1-2 Tbsp almond milk to sweet potatoes until you reach a puree consistency.
  3. Put sweet potato puree in a medium saucepan on the stove top. Add vanilla, coconut oil, honey, vanilla, peanut butter and sea salt.
  4. Mix ingredients and then bring sweet potato mixture to a simmer over medium heat, stirring frequently.
  5. Remove from heat and add chocolate chips and sea salt. Stir until smooth. Add almond milk until you have reached a consistency you are happy with (it should be able to hold soft peaks).
  6. Cool, stir occasionally until mixture is at room temperature and resembles thickness of canned frosting. Again, it should hold soft peaks when you lift the spatula from the pan but not be stiff.
  7. Spread frosting over whatever you see fit. I posted my favorite black bean chocolate muffin recipe below that would taste extra chocolatey with a dollop of sweet potato frosting on top!
