Whether you are a vegan, or just trying to avoid chocolate, this icing recipe is wonderful for making leaves, swirls and other cake decorations.
Coconut fat, or coconut butter, is often found at health food stores, or some high-end grocery stores. It is a solid fat, similar to a softened butter. Because it has about 100 calories per tablespoon, it is not much healthier than butter, but the flavor compliments the carob.
This dessert is very simple to make and we're told it was very popular with the friends of our friend who suggested it. Since it can be difficult to correctly substitute carob for chocolate, we love receiving recipes for carob desserts to share with you.
Please let us know how it works for you. If we get a lot of good responses, we can move this out of our test kitchen and into our recipe section for even more people to enjoy!

Sherbet is a change from milk-based recipes and is best served a little on the soft side. Lemon zest or orange zest can be added. You’ll need either an ice cream maker or a Vita Mix to get the consistency right. (This is wonderful served on the Caramelized Pineapple Rings.)
The pineapple is a magnificent fruit and tastes great when caramelized and served with Coconut Sherbet or ice cream. Make sure the pineapple is ripe and juicy.
