Whether you are entertaining a raw food loving bunch or not, these high-vibe truffles are sure to be a crowd pleaser at your holiday gathering. I have been creating raw chocolate treats for many years now and this super simple to make treat has become my go-to for holiday gifting and entertaining.
2 cups pitted dates soaked for half an hour in warm water
1 cup raw cacao
2 tablespoons melted coconut oil
1 tablespoon warm water
1 tablespoon Sun Potion He Shu Wu
1 tablespoon Sun Potion Pine Pollen
1 tablespoon Sun Potion Reishi
Approximately 2 tablespoons each of superfoods of your choice to coat the truffles in. I used crushed up freeze-dried raspberries, matcha powder, turmeric powder, hemp seeds, shredded coconut and bee pollen.
Process: Soak the dates for half an hour in warm water. Strain off the water and place dates in a food processor and process until you have a paste like consistency (about a minute). Add cacao powder, melted coconut oil, warm water, He Shu Wu, Pine Pollen, and Reishi and process until all the ingredients are incorporated (about 30 seconds). If the mixture is too crumbly to form balls, you can add more warm water. You want the mixture to stick together and also be moist enough for the superfoods to stick to them. Place your chosen superfoods in small dishes. In the palm of your hand roll the chocolate mixture into small balls. The size is up to you! I made them about the size of a cherry and got 22 of them. Now roll the balls in the dishes of superfoods until they are covered. Place in an airtight container and refrigerate until you are ready to serve them.
