Happy weekend everybody! We finally made it.
Why not celebrate with some delicious food? How about nutritionally dense treats? Yes? Then my chocolate avocado cupcakes will leave you feeling so decadent yet so light and guilt-free. How do you make this luscious avocado butter cream? Let me show you…

All you need for the frosting is:
1 large ripe or 2 medium ripe avocadoes,
3 tablespoons of honey or maple syrup
1 tsp of vanilla extract
2 teaspoons of raw cacao powder

Now I know what you’re thinking. How on earth can the avocado be used in this way? Well folks, avocado has such a bland flavour, it is sort of like a sponge, thus it will soak up all the flavours of anything its mixed with. Vitamin e and the good types of fat surround this wonderful vegetable, this butter cream tastes just like your regular frosting…but with more variation. Give it a go today guys!

Happy baking!

Niki
