Chocolate Avocado Frosting
Frosting is an easy menu item to remove to cut back on the sugar impact from dessert, but let's face it: sometimes you just want frosting. On a cupcake or on a spoon, it's a pleasure. This nutritious variation on chocolate frosting can be tweaked with spices like cinnamon or nutmeg to fit whatever you're frosting.
