Chocolate Sweet Potato Frosting (Dairy Free/ Refined Sugar Free)

Just as I did with Cinnamon Sweet Potato Frosting, with this frosting I was aiming for a light, low fat icing.

I still remember when a coworker first told me about a recipe she had seen with brownies and sweet potato icing. She was going to bring in the recipe for me to see, but I told her no thank you. You see when I see a picture or hear of a food I start getting inspired you thinking. I really enjoy figuring out how to make foods work together without seeing someone else’s recipe first.

I was intrigued… Hmm sweet potato as a base for an icing. It almost seems as though there is a ping pong ball bouncing throughout my head with lovely ides and combinations that work well together.

This icing is so lovely. Light and fluffy enough to fool anyone… No one would every know how good it is for you!

I am completely happy with the results, as are all the people who have tried it! πŸ™‚

One of my taste testers, (who has no food allergies) even asked me for the recipe before it was posted so she could make it for her birthday cake.

  1. Hmmm… now that is interesting! I have tried several recipes for dairy and sugar free frosting which has been okay but not worth blogging about (cashew based ones). Potato sounds like worth trying for sure and looks beautiful and delicious πŸ™‚

  2. This my friend is way creative!! Were you able to freeze any? I am curious how the frosting freezes! I can’t wait to try this! Awesome!! Thanks for linking up at our Gluten Free Fridays party! I have tweeted and pinned your entry to our Gluten Free Fridays board on Pinterest! πŸ™‚

  3. Sounds delicious! I pinned this recipe in case I forget about it, but like you, I prefer to figure foods out on my own and not be tied down to somebody else’s list of ingredients. I’ve been thinking of baking sweet potato brownies for awhile now and sweet potatoes in the frosting would be perfect since I’d already have them prepared for the batter. I’ll let you know how it turns out if I get around to it.
