This healthy raspberry chocolate frosting recipe was an accidental discovery in my kitchen. A few months ago, I made these delicious, healthy raspberry chocolate truffles. The first batch of truffle batter I made was too thin to form into truffles, so I put it away in the fridge and got to work on a thicker version. The second batch of truffles came out perfectly, but I was left with that other container of something else in the refrigerator.

Later that day, it occurred to me what that “something else” was. It was the exact texture of frosting. I had unintentionally stumbled upon a delicious, clean eating chocolate frosting recipe with no added sugar. I love being able to make guilt-free treats for my family, so this was a welcome discovery. Dates are a wonderful sweetener in this recipe, as they sweeten without overpowering the primary flavors of chocolate and raspberry. This frosting tastes delicious on vanilla or chocolate cupcakes. You can also use it as a filling in homemade toaster pastries.

Prep Time:10 minutes
Cook Time:0 minutes
Total Time:10 minutes


  • 3/4 cup raspberries
  • 9 Medjool dates
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 to 2 tsp water if needed


  • Melt the coconut oil and let it come to room temperature.
  • In a food processor, combine the raspberries, dates, coconut oil, vanilla, and cocoa powder. Process for about a minute, or until a smooth frosting is formed. You’ll need to scrape down the sides a few times. If it's too thick to spread on cupcakes, thin it with a teaspoon or two of water.
  • This batch is enough to frost a dozen cupcakes. I use a cupcake decorating tool, but any frosting method will work. Store at room temperature.

  1. I want to use this recipe to make a vanilla-peach icing…Do you think this would work with these substitutions?

    Instead of the cocoa, sub 1/4 cup pulverized freeze dried peaches
    Fresh peaches instead of raspberries


    1. I think that would work, Sabrinah. You’ll need to play with the texture, though. Add a little water if it’s too thick, or add a little flour if it’s too thin. I’d love to hear how it works!

  2. Oh my yum! This is absolutely sinful!!! I was doing a search for a clean eating frosting and came across yours. It is amazing! Definitely a keeper.

  3. I have to say you are hands down my favorite real food blogger! I’m addicted to ur blog and recipes! Me and my family r thankful!! I can’t wait to try this! Do u happen to have a whole wheat choc cake recipe I could use this on?

    1. Well I just tried the choc cake recipe! I used the 1 1/3 cup maple syrup as you suggested and all whole wheat flour and it worked great! I also didn’t have yogurt so I did a combo of sour cream and applesauce instead;) I made a two layer cake with ur wonderful frosting and everyone LOVED it!! Yummy dark choc treat! Thanks again!

      1. Awesome! I’m so glad it worked. I will have to try that cake recipe soon. I’m guessing you doubled the frosting to cover a 2-layer cake?

      2. Yes ma’am 😉 It was the perfect amount! My parents were visiting and I’m trying to get them on board with clean eating and this cake was very persuasive;)
