One great recipe: Beetroot superfood truffles

Posted on by Beyond Bespoke

It’s hard to believe these beetroot superfood truffles contain no refined sugar or dairy. Packed with goodness, they are practically two of your five a day…

Serves: 12

Preparation time: 15 minutes plus 1 hour chilling


1 large ready-cooked (vacuum-packed) beetroot

1 large ripe avocado, peeled

¼ tsp vanilla extract

3 tbsp pure maple syrup

100g unsweetened cacao powder plus extra for dusting

Desiccated coconut for dusting

Put the beetroot, avocado, vanilla extract, maple syrup and half of the cacao powder into a blender or food processor. Process until well combined. Add the remaining cacao powder to the blender and again process until well combined. Transfer the chocolate mixture to a small bowl. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour. Once chilled, scoop tablespoon-sized portions of the mixture. Roll in your palms to form balls – the mixture will be slightly sticky but should form balls easily. Put some extra cacao powder and desiccated coconut in a plate and roll the chocolate truffles around in one or the other to coat.
