How To Make Avocado Chocolate Truffles

This chocolate avocado truffle recipe is super easy to make and requires no baking.

Ingredients

  • Avocado – choose a ripe avocado. To know if your avocado is ripe, it should be slightly squishy when touched and the flesh under the stem should be bright green.
  • Maple Syrup – pick sugar-free maple syrup if you’re on a keto diet. Otherwise, you can use regular maple syrup or coconut nectar for a honey alternative.
  • Dark Chocolate – prefer unsweetened dark chocolate with at least 70% of cocoa.
  • Cocoa Powder – choose unsweetened cocoa powder.
Mashed avocado

Instructions

Combine the avocado flesh, maple syrup, melted chocolate, cocoa powder, and vanilla.

Process for 30 seconds to a minute to combine the batter.

The batter will be moist and sticky. You will have to store it in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to firm up.

Then, I recommend slightly rubbing 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.

Roll the truffles between your hands to form perfect small balls.

Decorating The Avacado Truffles

Place the avocado chocolate 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 these avocado chocolate truffles, play with natural powders.

The red ones are made with beetroot powder, the green ones with matcha powder, and the white ones are rolled into desiccated coconut.

You can also use some sugar-free icing on some of them.

Storage Instructions

This recipe makes 25 truffles. You can easily store them in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 4 days.

I don’t recommend freezing them as they are better enjoyed fresh, but it’s possible to keep them in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I Quickly Ripen An Avocado?

To ripen an avocado quickly, place them in a fruit basket near bananas or wrap them into a piece of foil.

Within 3-4 days, they should turn into smooth, ripe avocados.

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. That's 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 truffle 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 for 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 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 a powder for coating the truffles like unsweetened cocoa powder, it will get absorbed 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.

    8 Thoughts On Avocado Chocolate Truffles
  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. 5 stars
    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.
