I am actually pretty surprised at how easily I have transitioned back into healthy eating. I actually forgot how fun it is to try and find healthy swaps and eat delicious and naughty tasting food without the guilt! Enter the date truffle....
As I told you last week I have become obsessed with Instagraming for support and tips. It's also keeping me accountable because I try to post everything I eat like a food journal. Yesterday I found a user and blogger called lipstick and berries who has some gorgeous vegan and raw food photos and I was inspired to make some date truffles.
I have made date fudge before and it is basically the same but you roll it in balls.
I didn't measure out but you simply need dates, cocoa powder, coconut oil, and a food processor.
Puree medjool dates and add in a small amount of coconut oil and as much cocoa powder as you want. I like mine really chocolaty!
Refrigerate so the paste becomes sort of firm and then roll into balls.
I made three different varieties.
Rolled these in Qi'a cereal
I rolled these in cocoa powder and topped with a goji berry
And I rolled these in a blend of PB2 powder and flaxseed meal and topped with cacao nibs
So good and good for you - as long as you don't eat the whole tray at once!
