Vegan, gluten-free & refined sugar-free (depending on chocolate used)
Deliciously decadent yet oh-so-simple to make, these vegan chocolate truffles are sure to go down a treat. Coconut milk is rich in vitamins C, E, B1, B3, B5 and B6 plus a range of minerals including iron, selenium, sodium, calcium, magnesium - perfect fuel for yogis. While vegan dark chocolate is incredibly high in antioxidants which help to fight free radical damage and can slow-down the aging process. If possible, choose a raw chocolate bar and raw cacao powder to supercharge your truffles and increase their nutritional potency.
You can follow the recipe or use your culinary creativity to make these chocolaty goodies your own. Try adding in fruits and superfoods such sea salt, nuts, seeds, dates, goji berries or maca powder.
Ingredients – makes approx 12
- 125g Vegan Dark Chocolate
- 95g Coconut Milk
- Cacao powder for rolling
- sea salt
- honey/maple syrup
Break up the chocolate up into small pieces and place them into a bowl. Heat the coconut milk until it is boiling. Pour the coconut milk onto broken chocolate and let sit for around 1 minute. Stir the mixture with a spatula until all chocolate is melted and mixed with milk, then scrape down sides and pop in the fridge for around two hours, or until set.
Tip about half a cup of cacao powder into a bowl. Once the mix is set, use a spoon scoop into balls - about 17g per ball will make 12 good sized truffles. Before coating in cacao roll quickly into balls, then coat with cacao (warning: If you coat them in cacao before it won’t come together properly). Place the balls back in the fridge to firm up again. Remove them from the fridge then proceed to eat all the truffles in one sitting - or hide them far away from friends and housemates - your choice. Enjoy!
