Paleo Chocolate Frosting, A Paleo Chocolate Icing

This Paleo Chocolate Frosting recipe is made with coconut oil, honey, vanilla, cacao powder, coconut milk and coarse sea salt and spreads easily and hardens enough to decorate and travel. If you want to make a really beautifully decorated cake, you will want to watch the amount of coconut milk you add, start small and work you way into the quarter cup, until it is set to your desired texture. If used as directed below, you can use this for alternative toppings too, like for our Paleo Vanilla Bean Ice Cream or to as a dip for covering fresh strawberries! We definitely recommend using the sea salt as well, the balance of sweet and salty will make you love this recipe as much as we do. We also have shared some links below for our Paleo Chocolate Cake, just in case you’re prepping for a celebration!

Recipe: Paleo Chocolate Frosting


  • ½ cup Coconut Oil
  • ¼ cup raw Honey
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • ¾ cup Cacao Powder
  • ¼ cup Coconut Milk
  • Pinch Coarse Sea Salt


  1. Mix everything together except the sea salt in a blender until the ingredients are smooth and incorporated. We like to spoon the frosting into a bag or cake decorator.
  2. Spread it over or decorate your chocolate cake and sprinkle with a little sea salt. It’s really a great combination of sweet and salty…Trust us, we promise you won’t be disappointed!
