Leave a comment

A healthy treat to keep your chocolate craving at bay.

Preparation: 15 minutes
Serves: 20 servings
Energy: 120 calories per serving

– 1 ¼ cup dates
– 4 oz mixed nuts
– 16 oz Brazil nuts
– 10 oz lemon juice
– 5ml lime juice
– 3 ½ oz ground almonds
– 2 tbsps coco powder

1) Place the dates, almonds, coco powder, lime rind and juice in a processor and blend until the mixture forms a stiff ball, adding more lime juice if necessary to help bring the mixture together.
2) Remove the blade and roll the date mixture into balls. Place in truffle cases or roll into balls and fill each with a Brazil (or macadamia) nut. Roll in extra chopped nuts too, if you like.
3) Cover and keep in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Note: You can also dust your truffle in coco powder, coconut or chopped nuts for that extra treat.
