It’s been one of those days that calls for a whole lot of chocolate. You know the kind, don’t you?

The kind that makes writing a super fun and profound post rather difficult… because nothing sounds better right now than making a pillow-and-blanket-nest, and then proceeding to ignore the world until tomorrow morning. Late morning, if possible.

If there’s a chocolate cake that accompanies you into that comfy, warm nest… all the better.

Unfortunately, we’re (supposedly) mature adults with things called responsibilities and schedules and appointments to keep (and posts to publish)… so no pillow-and-blanket-nest for the weary. To compensate, let’s have that last piece of chocolate cake and talk about… chocolate.

(When I say “let’s have”, I mean “I’ll have and you can look at mouthwatering pictures”.)

The chocolate cake in question is healthy, allergy friendly and paleo, and it’s recipe will be published… next week. I know. I know. I’m super mean.

But good things come to those that wait, and we’ll talk about something just as amazing today. That is, we’ll talk about the healthy paleo and vegan chocolate frosting which takes the chocolate cake from delicious to utter perfection.

Wait, HEALTHY chocolate ganache? Why yes, indeed.

In fact, this recipe has been floating round the Internet for quite some time now – and it’s definitely worth all the hype. Here’s what we’ll need:

ripe avocados

cocoa powder

honey or maple syrup

The three ingredients of the healthy paleo & vegan chocollate frosting: ripe avocados, cocoa powder and honey or maple syrup.

That’s right: we’re talking chocolate avocado frosting. Now, before you pronounce me totally insane – hear me out.

The avocado gives this vegan chocolate frosting its silky smooth, decadent consistency and the luscious shine that marks a good chocolate ganache. And – provided you use suitably ripe avocados – you can’t actually taste the avocados! (Pinky promise.)

You can slather this healthy vegan ganache onto just about anything – cake, brownies, a spoon… It’s a tough call, simply because it’s so darn delicious.

It’s Friday, lovely people. And is that fact alone the perfect excuse for making this delectable paleo and vegan chocolate frosting (and a cake to go with it)? You bet.
