Ingredients

Instructions

  • Puree the avocado in a food processor or blender until smooth.
  • In a separate bowl melt the chopped dark chocolate. Be careful not to burn the chocolate, you can stir it every 20 seconds. 
  • When chocolate is completely melted, stir in the coconut sugar and vanilla. Whisk until dissolved/combined.
  • Pour chocolate mixture into food processor with pureed avocado and pulse again to combine.
  • Put in the fridge for about 20-30 minutes to cool and set aside small bowl of cocoa powder.
  • Once truffles have cooled, roll the truffles into small balls. Lightly dust in cocoa powder.
  • Keep the truffles in the refrigerator for up to one week.

Notes

  • You can store these healthy chocolate truffles in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week. I would not recommend freezing them.
Tips for making Healthy Chocolate Truffles
 
  • Use very ripe avocados. The avocados I used were almost too ripe as you can see the browning start to occur. You want the avocados to be soft and easily scoop-able
  • Use a chocolate with no dairy + minimal sugar.  
  • Use a food processor - I find this is easier to do in a food processor than a blender, but you can use a blender too! This food processor is one of my favorite kitchen tools!
Substitutions for these healthy chocolate truffles
 
  • Chocolate- You can use any chocolate you like in this recipe, just note that depending on the chocolate you use it will likely make the truffles not be paleo/vegan
  • Sweetener- You can use regular sugar if you don't have coconut sugar, or maple syrup for a paleo option
  • Vanilla Extract- Vanilla extract isn't necessary in the truffles, you can omit if you don't have it!
