SUMMER LOVE TRUFFLES

Raw Chocolate Truffles

With Summer here we all need to have tasty little treats that refresh our body. These Summer Love Truffles are a perfect choice during those hot days when we crave something cool and tasty! :)

SUMMER LOVE TRUFFLE RECIPE:

For the truffle center: •    1 cup sprouted raw almond butter •    1/2 cup organic unsweetened shredded coconut •    2 tbs cold pressed organic coconut oil •    1 tsp black strap molasses •    2-4 tbs local raw honey •    1 tbs raw and organic vanilla bean powder •    2 tbs raw organic tahini •    1 tsp organic cinnamon •    4 tbs fresh pressed organic Meyer lemon juice •    3 tbs organic Italian leaf parsley

Instructions for the truffle center: Place all ingredients in your mixer or blender and mix/blend until all ingredients are thoroughly mixed together. Form into one inch balls and place in the freezer until the dough has firmed up.

For the chocolate coating: •    1/2 cup organic cold pressed coconut oil •    1/2 coconut nectar  (local raw honey, grade B maple syrup and yacon syrup all work great too) •    3/4 cup raw cacao powder

Instructions to make: Mix all ingredients in your blender until very smooth and creamy. Once chocolate is done take the truffle centers and dip them in the chocolate. Then place them in the refrigerator or freezer until chocolate coating has hardened.

ENJOY!
