Healthy Avocado Chocolate truffles : how to ripen avocado ?

I love dark chocolate truffles for Christmas. I think there is no Christmas without chocolate truffles. If you also love christmas truffles I gather a collection of 12 easy no bake christmas truffles recipe.  But, here I am sharing with you my healthier chocolate truffle recipe. Those easy avocado chocolate truffles are super easy to make – all you need is a super ripe avocado. I agree if you live in US or Europe, finding ripe avocado in winter is a challenge. So this is my trick. To ripen avocado quickly, place them in a fruit basket near bananas or wrap them into a piece of foil. Wit for 3-4 days at max and they should turn into smooth ripe avocado. That is how it looks like for me. Well, I am living in New Zealand, the country where I ate the most delicious avocado. nz mashed avocado

The batter will be moist and sticky. You will ahve to store it in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to firm up. Then, I recommend to slightly rub your hands with coconut oil before rolling the truffles into your hands. It makes the process easier and it won’t stick to your fingers.

I place all my truffles on a simple chopping board covered with parchment paper and decorate most of them with a dust of unsweetened cocoa powder.

To create beautiful Christmas colors on those avocado chocolate truffles I played with natural powder. The red one are made of beetroot powder, the green is matcha powder and the white one are rolled into desiccated coconut. I also used a tiny bit of sugar free icing on some of them. It is basically erythritol icing powder.

I made this recipe two times. First time I used strong 90% dark chocolate to make this recipe. The darker the better! But the kids prefer a lighter chocolate around 80%. Look how fudgy they are! and they taste amazing, no avocado after taste at all!

There is no more to say about those truffles. I made them and ate 3 of them while shooting. I am not even sure why I am saying that. You know I already eat a lot of my food while shooting, right ? I really have to stop eating  because tonight I have got some family for dinner and it is our dessert. This recipe makes 25 truffles. You can easily store them in the fridge in an airtight container up to 4 days. But believe me, you will eat them before.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Place the ripe avocado flesh in a bowl. Using a fork, mash the avocado into a smooth puree. You can also process the avocado flesh in a food processor.
  • Add the sugar free maple syrup, melted chocolate, unsweetened cocoa powder vanilla and stevia drops if you want to increase the sweetness. Stir to combine. 
  • Cover the mixing bowl and refrigerate for 30 minutes to 1 hour max. That is an important step to firm up the batter and make the truffles easy to roll up.
  • Slightly grease your hands with coconut oil and shape the truffles with your hands. 
  • Roll each truffles into the coating of your choice : unsweetened cocoa powder or desiccated coconut and place the truffles on a plate covered with parchment paper. Store in the fridge 30 more minutes before eating, the texture will be even better.
  • This recipe makes about 25 truffles. Store well in the fridge up to 4 days, in an airtight container.
Coating natural colors: for the green coating I used matcha powder and spirulina powder, the red coating is beetroot powder. 
Chocolate: this recipe will work well with any dark chocolate. For a bitter slightly sweet truffle use 78%-85% dark chocolate. For a sweet truffle use a dark chocolate between 55%-70%. 
Storage: they store really well in the fridge - up to 4 days in an airtight container If you are using powder for coating the truffles like unsweetened cocoa powder, it will get absorb quickly and you will have to roll them again into the coating before serving. To prevent that, roll them into a solid coating like desiccated coconut.

  1. Could you maybe share how much of every ingrediënt you use, to get the right balance? I wiuld like to make these tonight

    • Hi, I am not sure I understand your question my dear. You have got the full recipe ingredients listed in the recipe card on this post with exact amount of every ingredients you need to make those avocado truffles. Instructions are also on the recipe cards. Let me know ! xoxo Carine.


  2. I finally got around to try your awesome recipe Carine! The avocados here in Germany are impossible to turn into a purée with a fork so I used a mixer otherwise there would still be pieces of avocados hanging around. I used rice malt sirup as sweeterner and cinnamon for spice which covers very well the avocado taste. So simple and easy. Perfect for my son’s birthday next week!

    • Hi Emilie, It is better to use ripe avocado for this recipe. I agree, here in New Zealand and specially in summer it is pretty easy to find ripe avocado. If you can’t I recommend to leave your avocado in at room temperature in a bowl near banana. Bananas release lots of ethylene the hormone that makes avocado ripe quickly. It should not take more than 4 days to gets soft and creamy avocado that you can smash with a fork. A nice trick to make guacamole in winter too 🙂 Also if you use honey in this recipe you should barely taste the avocado flavour. I hope little Alexander enjoy them as Tata Carine do! Love from NZ! xoxo Carine.
