Banana Sweet Potato Frosting

This icing recipe is from Bridget at Never Here Again. It's egg-free, dairy-free, corn-free and free of refined sugars--hard to find in a frosting recipe!

Mix together:

1 cup mashed sweet potato
1 ripe banana (could also use amasake)
2 T maple syrup or brown rice syrup
1 t orange juice

We can't have sweet potato or maple syrup, so if anyone tries this please let me know how it is.

I left out half of the banana, added some cinnamon and nutmeg, and substituted honey for the syrup (because of my own health restrictions - no artifical sweeters), and it was fabulous. I also added cinnamon and nutmeg to your brown sugar cake and topped it with this icing. It was a very lovely brunch cake with tea. Great fall flavors.

Also have you tried making vanilla extract with some kind of alcohol other than vodka? I think gin might work and avoid the corn.

It was too mushy for me and i think the banana was very overpowering.
