Follow these TIPS to make perfect healthy chocolate truffles:

  • Use good quality chocolate.
  • Make sure to use full fat coconut milk and remember to shake it well!
  • Make sure to melt and mix the ingredients thoroughly so that there are no lumps.
  • Don’t forget to chill the chocolate truffle mixture until it becomes solid or else you won’t be able to shape little balls.
  • Use a measuring spoon to scoop out the mixture for making even little chocolate truffle balls.
  • Wearing disposable plastic gloves makes it easier to toll the mixture into truffle balls. It’s not as sticky or messy!
  • Store leftovers in the fridge and when you are ready to serve, set the plate on your countertop at room temperature for 15- 20 minutes and this will make them super creamy!
  • Eat all leftovers within 1 week, if they last that long! 😉

I used Vital Proteins Collagen Whey in this recipe to give these truffles an additional boost of nutrition.

It comes in a 20 oz canister and it’s packed with  collagen peptides, whey proteins, probiotics and flavanols.

All of this helps with joint support and increased protein utilization.

It also has a wonderful cocoa/ coconut flavor! 😀

This is seriously an awesome and effortless way to add some nutrients and proteins into your diet.
