Healthy Chocolate Frosting (Soy Free)

This quick-and-easy chocolate frosting is perfect for Halloween treats, holiday baking, or anytime dipping! It pipes and holds its shape just like regular buttercream, but has only 1 gram of fat in a 2½-tablespoon serving.

So, what’s the secret to this guilt-free frosting? Sweet potato! (Thanks to Sandi’s Allergy Free Recipes for the inspiration.) This veggie’s sweet, earthy flavor melds beautifully with chocolate and makes baked goods sing. Just be sure to microwave or bake your sweet potatoes instead of boiling them to keep this frosting rich and creamy.

See the recipe on Veggie Quest for nutrition information and a version sweetened only with dates.
