How To Make Avocado Chocolate Truffles
This chocolate avocado truffle recipe is super easy to make and requires no baking.
- 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.
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.
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.
