Raw chocolate truffles
The chocolate enthusiast in you will be grateful for these decadent-looking treats, which are in fact quite healthy and easy to make. This recipe yields the softest, lightest and most delicious little drops of heaven, and can be enjoyed by those watching their weight, vegetarians and vegans alike.
You will need:
– 1 avocado
– Agave syrup
– Almond meal
– 100% pure organic cocoa
– Dried fruit, natural flavours (optional)
– Coconut flakes
Mash up the avocado with a fork and add 3-4 tablespoon of agave syrup, as you would for mayonnaise. Add 4-5 tablespoons of cocoa powder and almond meal, until you get a thick even consistency so you can mould the truffles.
If you prefer a stronger dark chocolate flavour, taste the mix and gradually add more cocoa powder until you’re satisfied with the result. You can add dried fruit, jam or nuts to the mix as filling.
Mould the mix into evenly-sized balls and roll them through cocoa powder or coconut flakes. Place each truffle in individual paper candy cups so you don’t get your hands dirty as you savour them.
Put them in the fridge for at least 2 hours and enjoy with a loved one.
