- 🍫 Dark chocolate - in vegan desserts I always recommend using Hu Chocolate bars. They're Sugar-free, Oil-free and Soy-free and have the best taste. Enter the code IRYNA15 for 15% off on all Hu Kitchen products
- 🥑 Avocado - healthy fats
- Matcha powder - very high in antioxidants that may help neutralise harmful free radicals
- Cacao powder - for coating the truffles. Please note, I recommend using raw cacao powder versus Cocoa powder. The latter is more processed hence contains less nutrients than raw cacao powder
1. Break chocolate bar into smaller pieces and place them in a large heat-proof bowl. Set the bowl over a pot filled with 2 inches of simmering water. Stir until chocolate has melted.
2. Meanwhile mash the avocado making sure to break small lumps. The best way to do this is to push scooped avocado through a fine metal strainer.
3. Turn off the heat and place the bowl on a counter. Add avocado and Matcha powder and stir to combine. The mixture will harden.
4. Cover the bowl with a plastic wrap and chill for 30 minutes.
5. Using your hands roll the mixture into small balls and coat them with cacao powder.
These healthy dark chocolate truffles should be stored in a refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
Here're some other additions to these delectable vegan truffles that are recommend:
- instead of Cacao powder, you can use shredded coconut or finely chopped nuts for coating the truffles
- in addition, you can melt some more vegan chocolate and drizzle truffles with melted chocolate
- prepare vegan caramel, found in this Toffee Pudding recipe and put some caramel inside the truffles
