How would you like an icing that is healthy? Have you ever thought about icing a cake with sweet potatoes?

Would you like your kids to eat more vegetables? Why not try this creamy icing.I have figured out that this icing is a fantastic dip!!

Try it on top of chocolate cake , vanilla cake, or even pumpkin cake for added vegetables…….

  1. Thanks for linking this recipe up to 5-Ingredient Mondays! I’m featuring it this as one of my favourite submissions 🙂 Hope to see you back this week!

  2. I’ve never heard of coconut flour, do I get it at the health food store is it gluten free?

    • Yes it’s gluten free. You can get it at health stores as well as some grocery stores 🙂

  3. What a brilliant idea! How does the coconut flour affect the texture? I imagine it to be gritty. What have you found?

    • I use the coconut flour as a binder, just as I use cocoa in the chocolate sweet potato frosting.
      It’s not gritty at all 🙂 Just make sure you put everything through the food processor or blender.

    • Glad you liked it. My grandkids and other kids have tried it and liked it. You may want to try your kids on my Chocolate Sweet Potato Icing 🙂

    • I peel and boil the sweet potatoes until soft. The frosting is on top of vanilla cupcakes and there is a link for that recipe on this one 🙂

  4. Dear Sandy, These cupcakes sounds wonderful and look so moist and delicious. Just stopping by from Foodie Friday. Glad to have found your blog. Blessings, Catherine

  5. The best gfcf icing ever!!! My kids loved it and fighting over who would lick the bowl…. Can u pls send a link for icing that’s more colourful and can go over a celebration cake for kids? Thanks and regards
