Wow, it's been so long since my last post! Sorry everyone, tech issues over here :( did you miss me? I missed you!
Just a short post today to finally reveal what the green goop was that I made in My shiny new toy!
It's avocado frosting! Don't leave, you know you're fascinated :)
I've been experimenting lately with vegan recipes, which has been lots of fun. I'm not into the vegan lifestyle myself, but some recipes are so interesting, I just can't resist. Also I have loads of friends who are dairy or egg free... it's crazy how many people have allergies these days!
This is a super quick and easy way to make frosting and it's the most fun brilliant green color. It does taste a little like avocado, but on a rich chocolate cupcake it really does work.
You can also easily add some cocoa and it becomes chocolate frosting - the kids will never know the difference! And they'll get a dose healthy fats, win, win!
2 ripe avocados
1 tsp vanilla extract
500g icing sugar (approx)
- Scoop the avocado flesh into the bowl of a cake mixer. Make sure to get rid of any brown spots.
- Add the vanilla and using a paddle attachment, beat the avocado until smooth, about 2 minutes.
- Slowly add the icing sugar until you get the desired consistency.
Note: the frosting will keep in the fridge for up to a week in an air tight container.
