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.

Healthy Chocolate Frosting
- 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.
If you’d prefer a non-chocolate cake or cupcake topping, be sure to try this homemade Coconut Whipped Cream.
