Raw cacao and blueberry truffles

Raw truffles are a lot like bliss balls – the difference with truffles is that you blend the nuts for a little longer so that you get a dense, fudgey consistency in your final product. For this reason, I make my truffles a little smaller than my bliss balls.

Ingredients

1 cup almonds

20 dried and pitted dates

2 tsp coconut oil

2 tsp coconut syrup or honey

2 tbsp cacao powder

50g dried blueberries

a couple of tbsp dessicated coconut, for coating the truffles

Let’s do this!

In your Froothie Optimum blender, whizz up the almonds on a medium speed until they are superfine.

Add the dates, coconut oil, coconut syrup and cacao and blend until combined. The mixture should be sticking together. If it’s not, add one more teaspoon of coconut oil.

Add the blueberries and blend, but not for too long this time (you want a few blueberry chunks).

Roll into balls and coat in dessicated coconut.
