A snack that speaks to your sweet-loving side with minimal sugar, contains essential fatty acids, B vitamins and minerals? Yep, here it is. And, it contains both soluble and insoluble fiber to gently protect digestion. My 5 year old daughter loves making and, eating these, so try them out with your kids!
These coco haze superfood truffles are creamy, velvety, rich, chocolatey and a tad sweet; they curb the sweet tooth cravings without the guilt.
I used all organic, non-GMO and Terrasoul Superfoods ingredients to create these super easy truffles that will take you about 20-30 minutes to make. This is not an ad, I love Terrasoul superfood products because they are super high quality and substituting with lesser quality ingredients wouldn't yield the same wonderful truffle results.
Have fun and enjoy!
What You'll Need:
- High speed blender
- Glass or stainless bowl
- Silicone spatula
- Waxed paper
Coco Haze Superfood Truffles
- 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
- ½ cup coconut oil
- ¼ cup maple syrup
- ¾ cup cacao powder
- 2 tsp psyllium powder
- 1 T acai powder
- ½ cup medjool dates
- 2 T hazelnut butter
- ¼ tsp pink Himalayan salt
- 1 tsp vanilla powder + ½ tsp reserved
- 1 T coconut palm sugar optional
In a high speed blender add coconut flakes and puree until a course powder forms.
Add coconut oil and maple syrup.
Blend until ingredients become smooth and don’t be surprised if this takes 5-10 minutes. You’ll want to stop to bring excess ingredients back down from the sides of the blender into the mixture with a silicone spatula.
Add remaining ingredients minus sugar, acai and extra vanilla powder blending until smooth. If at this point you find the mixture too thin, you can add up to ¼ cup additional cacao. If you do add cacao, blend until smooth, taste and if it’s now too bitter, simply add a little more maple syrup.
Scrape out of blender into a glass or stainless bowl. Add cacao until your excess oil and syrup is “soaked” up.
In a small bowl, mix together acai, vanilla powder and optional sugar. If making for the kids, they tend to like the coconut sugar.
Now you’re ready to roll into truffles! On waxed paper, roll with your hands and coat with reserved acai and optional sugar.
notes: Truffles will be good for up to one week when stored in the refrigerator. Enjoy!
