How to Make Vegan Chocolate Frosting

How to Make Vegan Chocolate Frosting

Making the perfect chocolate vegan frosting has been something I have struggled with ever since I started baking without dairy. The all vegan butter based versions were always way too greasy for my taste, and the all coconut milk versions never held up quite as well. Well, I’ve found the perfectly creamy, easy, and non-greasy version of vegan chocolate frosting and I’m sharing my secrets of how to make it with you!

It’s my birthday week and I’ll eat ALL the chocolate and peanut butter that I want to! Ok, I actually haven’t had THAT many sweets yet this week (mostly a lot of fries), but don’t worry my birthday cake recipe is coming later this week and ohhhh is it GOOD. In the meantime, I am ALL about these no-bake vegan cereal bars right now because they come together in 15 minutes, don’t need ot turn on the oven (hello old house with no AC), and are SO EASY! Like, throw everything together and pop it in the freezer so it’s ready for a cookout later, kind of easy.

Cherry Coconut Floats

I’m deeming this ‘the summer of getting myself right’. Not really in an I’m-going-to-be-perfect sense, but more like in a ‘you’re-turning-30-so-figure-it-out’ kind of way. I’m at a point when I feel like I finally have my workout routine down (yoga always and forever), I started wearing sunscreen every day (my grandma is going to give me heck for not doing it sooner), and have started enjoying a ‘fun drink’ everyafternoon. My ‘fun drink’ is usually a sparkling water blended with fruit or matcha latte to get me through the last bit of workday, blending it up around my usual 2 pm slump and powering all the way through to the end of my workday. It’s a lot less about the fun drink and a lot more about taking a moment to prioritize taking a break for self-care and enjoying an everyday afternoon.
