Protein frosting ingredients
The most important ingredient in this garnish is protein powder.
Make sure to use a brand you like, and stay away from any protein powder that has a chalky or synthetic flavor.
For this recipe (and many of my other recipes that require protein powder), I used it and highly recommend it Laird Vegan Protein Superfood, Because it gives you an incredible experience 19 grams Of protein per serving and all essential amino acids, with no soy, rice, peas, whey, egg, or stevia, and without preservatives or artificial sweeteners.
I’ve also found this one to have the most neutral flavor of any protein powder I’ve ever tried (which says something, because I’ve tried a lot of brands).
So you can use any protein powder, but if you’re looking for a recommendation, Laird protein powder is definitely the one that I think works best.
(Due to their neutral flavor and texture, I found their protein powder to be ideal also for smoothies and protein bars.)
I love using peanut butter in the recipe, because it makes the garnish taste like a cup of chocolate peanut butter!
For a more neutral flavor, you can use almond butter, cashew butter, coconut butter, plain butter, or even sunflower butter.
If you make a garnish and find yourself with leftover peanut butter and protein powder, try one of these popular foods. Banana smoothies and peanut butter.
Frost flavor variations:
Chocolate coffee frosting: My heart 1/2 teaspoon instant coffee.
Mint chocolate frosting: Stir 1/8 teaspoon of pure peppermint extract.
Mexican chocolate frosting: Stir in 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon.
Coconut chocolate frosting: Use coconut butter for the base. If desired, stir 3 tablespoons of grated coconut and 1/8 teaspoon of coconut extract.
Banana Chocolate Frosting: Mix 1/2 banana.
What would your dream of flavor chocolate frosting be? Some other additional ideas that I could think of include orange zest, vanilla beans, caramel or almond extract, or raspberry jam.

- 2 Tablespoon Plain or Dutch cocoa powder
- 3 Tablespoon Protein Powder – I recommend Laird Vegan Protein Superfood
- 2 Tablespoon Favorite milk
- 4 Tablespoon Pure maple syrup, or stevia to taste
- 4 Tablespoon Almond or peanut butter, or hypoallergenic
If it is not already tender, gently heat the nut butter until it is easy to stir. Blend everything together until smooth. It is much smoother if you are using a small blender or food processor but it can definitely be done by hand. For the stevia version, add more milk as needed. For best freshness, keep leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 10 days. View nutrition facts
