Healthy Chocolate Frosting

Looking for a healthy chocolate frosting to top a cake, or even to eat straight out of the bowl? You’ve come to the right place. This frosting is smooth, thick and glossy, and totally guilt-free!

When I made my Healthy Chocolate Cake the other day, of course it needed a frosting that was equally as healthy and deliciously chocolatey! So I mixed some cocoa powder, Greek yoghurt and honey in a bowl, and voila!

It spreads so nicely – perfectly glossy and smooth, yet holding its shape and coating the cake beautifully.

    Given the base of yogurt, will this need to be refrigerated after on cake? Will it “melt”?

      The great thing about this frosting is that it will stay on the cake well after decorating, so it shouldn’t melt off the cake. However, you’re absolutely right that the cake will need to be stored in the fridge afterwards, due to the Greek yoghurt. Thank you for mentioning it Katie – I have now added the storage instructions to the recipe!🙂

    The Greek yogurt- should it be plain? Or cannot be vanilla?….

      I used plain Greek yoghurt, but you can absolutely use vanilla! Thank you for the query Katie, and I hope you enjoy the frosting!🙂
