How To Make Avocado Chocolate Truffles
You will need the following ingredients:
- one ripe avocado
- 150 g of dark chocolate with 80% or more cocoa
- 2 tablespoons of organic cocoa powder
- Optional: 1 ½ tablespoon of coconut flour or coconut oil
First, take the avocado and peel it. Place it in a container and mash it with a fork. If you have a hand blender you can do this procedure with it. Next, in a separate container break the chocolate into pieces and melt it on low heat. Once you’ve done that, mix the avocado puree with the melted dark chocolate until they combine nicely. Take a large flat pan and on it place one sheet of baking paper, with a spoon scoop out of the mixture and form small balls. Each avocado chocolate ball, roll it in the cocoa powder and then place it on the baking paper. Place the avocado chocolate truffles in the fridge for 3 hours to harden and enjoy!
Note: If you want to use coconut flour or coconut oil you just need to mix it with the rest of the ingredients before you form the avocado chocolate truffles. You can modify this recipe by adding honey, dates, and raisins, for sweetness or coconut flakes, crushed almond, and hazelnuts for crunchiness.
