26 Jan raw cranberry choc truffles
Who knew healthy food could taste so good? These bite sized balls contain a nice little hit of antioxidants, as well as being totally delicious.
Seriously… treat yourself to these. Naturopath’s orders. 😉
Oh, and when it comes to cranberries, make sure you buy the good stuff. Try your health or bulk food store for one that doesn’t have icky vegetable oil or cane sugar added.
1 cup cashews
1 cup desiccated coconut
1 cup cranberries
2 tbsp acai powder
2 tbsp coconut nectar
2 tsp coconut oil
50g cacao butter
1 1/2 tbsp coconut syrup
2 tbsp cacao powder
1/4 tsp vanilla powder
1/2 tsp coconut oil
Let’s do this!
Combine all your truffle ingredients in a food processor and whizz on a high speed until it starts to stick together.
Take level tablespoons of mixture at a time and tightly roll into balls.
Pop them in the freezer for 15-20 minutes.
Next, heat your cacao butter gently in a double boiler (this is just a metal bowl over a saucepan of gently simmering water). If you want your treats to be considered 100% raw, do not heat above 48C.
Take off the heat and whisk through the other ingredients (you can do this step in a blender if you prefer).
Remove your balls from the freezer, and one by one, dunk them in the chocolate mixture until they are all evenly coated. Wait until the first coating is set, and dunk them a second time for extra chocolate awesomeness.
Leave to set in the fridge on an oven rack or a sheet of baking paper.
Makes about 15-20 truffles.
