I can tell you for sure, it would taste exactly like eating this icing.

Now let me tell you a few secrets:

  1. There’s no powdered sugar in this icing

  2. There’s no butter in this icing

  3. This recipe only requires 4 simple, healthy ingredients

Oh, and the best secret of all time: this icing only has two grams of sugar per tablespoon. There’s no way you could find that with traditional icing, made with buckets of powdered sugar and butter.

The trick to this icing is the coconut oil. As you know if you’ve ever tried coconut oil, it solidifies at room temperature. Therefore, in order to make the smoothest peanut butter icing imaginable, simply melt the coconut oil and stir in the remaining ingredients, then place the bowl in an ice bath and whip until fluffy.

That’s it.
