Easy Vegan Healthy Fruit Sweetened Chocolate Cake Filling/Frosting Recipe

I'm making my kidlet's birthday cake and I needed a filling that wasn't overpowering and low on sugar and fat. I researched and came up with nothing! So I just made up my own
Double this for frosting and filling:

1/2 C Dated Pits Removed
2 Tbsp Cocoa Powder or more your preference
1/4 C Unsweetened Shredded Coconut (gives more body but can be omitted or replaced with cashews or nuts)
2 Tbsp or slightly more Lite Coconut milk (any milk or milk sub will do)
1 tsp Vanilla

Puree the dates, cocoa powder, shredded coconut, and vanilla in a food processor and slowly add the coconut milk until the consistency smooths out check on it to make sure it is stiff and not runny.
