You may wonder how you could possibly make chocolate truffles healthy. Well I’ve got a recipe here that is so smooth, creamy and delicious you wouldn’t think they were healthy at all!
Truffles are essentially a ganache, which is just chocolate and cream melted together. Now, obviously I wouldn’t use cream so I thought why not try substituting with milk, and it produces the same results. So here is my recipe for Healthy Chocolate Truffles.
Healthy Chocolate Truffles
- 125g dark chocolate (at least 70% cocoa)
- 5 tbs almond milk (you could also use soy, or low fat cows milk)
- 1 tsp maple syrup (optional – I like a little bit of sweetness)
- ½ tsp vanilla extract (again, optional)
- Place chocolate and milk in a heatproof bowl and melt in microwave on medium heat for 1-2 minutes, stirring halfway. (Alternatively you could place the bowl over a pan of simmering water to melt)
- When melted, add the maple syrup and vanilla extract if using, mix together and place in the freezer for about 20 minutes, or until firm but easy to scoop.
- Take teaspoonfuls of the mixture and roll into a ball, then place on a baking paper lined tray and put in the fridge to firm up for about 10 minutes.
- When firm you can roll them in some dessicated coconut, cacao powder, icing sugar, or even some melted chocolate.
