CHOCOLATE FROSTING WITHOUT BUTTER:
Can you imagine a great tasting frosting without butter? Yes this is possible. Replacing the butter with a healthy high protein nut butter solves all problems for those with dairy allergies. The chocolate is sugar free because it gets a mild sweetness from the cashew butter and vegan milk. If you want the frosting to be sweeter use the same recipe and just substitute the vegan chocolate with a sweetened semi sweet chocolate.
