Frosting Recipe

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a good frosting recipe that doesn't require powdered sugar. I can't tolerate any sort of refined sugar and powdered sugar is too much for me to handle.

Thanks

You could try a raw icing which is made out of cashews. I can't think of anything else you could make icing out of that didn't use some form of refined sugar.

I've found I get a nice creamy frosting by mixing carob (or cocoa) powder, coconut oil, and a bit of Stevia. Optionally you may want to add a little salt too, as it seems to help the flavor. I don't use cocoa, but I'm sure it would work just as well as the carob. The more oil you use, the softer the frosting, so just start with a small amount and work up to the consistency you want. Just keep in mind that coconut oil melts at about 76
