We’ve taste-tested this frosting with and without cocoa powder, and if you’re not a fan of chocolate frosting, good news! Without the cocoa, this recipe is, well, maybe not the most festive color, but it’s a darn tasty vanilla frosting that smacks of brown sugar. If you’re aiming to make sure your sweet treats bring some nutritional benefit to the table, this is one frosting you’ve got to try.
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 just a pleasure. This nutritious variation on chocolate frosting can be tweaked with spices like cinnamon or nutmeg to fit whatever you’re frosting.
