Paleo Valentines Raw White Chocolate Raspberry Truffles

 

Uhhh yup! Yes… JUST YES!!! Just in time for Valentine’s Day why not make your loved one some of these beautiful Paleo Valentines Raw White Chocolate Raspberry Truffles?!

These truffles are just so silky smooth, not overly sweet and have a beautfiul raspberry tang to them – absolutely in love with these! They just so happen to be super easy to make as well as being beyond delicious! Oh and want to know something even better? These truffles aren’t that bad for you at all. Not one bit! (Ok maybe just a wee bit but that’s it I promise).

I hope you enjoy making these for that special someone (or yourself!)

Makes: Roughly 15 truffles

Preparation Time: 30 minutes (plus upto 4 hours chilling time)

Cooking Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients:

For the truffles:

75g cacao butter
1/3 cup coconut milk
2 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp raw honey (or maple syrup)
1/4 tsp vanilla powder
1/8 cup freeze dried raspberry powder
1/4 cup tapioca flour

For the raspberry dusting:

1/4 cup tapioca flour
1/4 cup coconut sugar (or maple sugar for a brighter colour)
1/8 cup freeze dried raspberry powder

Method:

  1. Combine all of the ingredients for the truffles except for the raspberry powder & tapioca flour (and not the ingredients for the dusting of course) in a heatproof bowl. Place over a bain marie on a low heat.
  2. Whisk the ingredients frequently until completely melted. Once melted add in your raspberry powder and whisk until fully distributed. You may want to sift in your raspberry powder if it contains seeds, I however love to take the wholesome approach when it comes to my filled centres!
  3. Remove the bowl from the heat and set to one side for 10-15 minutes until it has cooled down sufficiently. Then whisk in your tapioca flour until smooth.
  4. Give the ingredients a whisk once more then cover and chill until firm (around 2-3 hours). You may want to check on the mixture periodically as sometimes cacao butter likes to separate out but it’s nothing a quick whisk won’t fix!
  5. Next combine all of your dusting ingredients into a food processor and process until the consistency of icing sugar. You may want to do this for a few minutes. I use the milling attachment on my Nutribullet and it takes less than a minute!
  6. Next remove the mixture and take a melon baller scooping out rounds, alternatively take about 1 heaped teaspoon of the mixture per truffle and shape into balls using well oiled hands (if necessary). I like to use coconut oil as I find this doesn’t affect the flavour much and it is a great hand treatment too!
  7. Pour your dusting into a shallow ball and roll each truffle immediately after shaping in the dusting untill fully coated. Lightly shake off any excess. Leave to chill on a sheet of greaseproof paper for 10 minutes.
  8. Remove the truffles and repeat the dusting process. You may want to reshape them into ball shapes if they have fallen slightly flat!
  9. Leave to chill on a sheet of greaseproof paper in an airtight container and consume within 3 days. If you are wanting to keep them for longer freeze for upto a month but be sure to defrost them overnight in the fridge!

    They really sound wonderful!! But can you please tell me, did you use tapioca flour or starch and either way, is it possible to consume it raw? Thank you!!

      Hi Anna, thank you ever so much for your kind words. Yes it is perfectly safe to consume tapioca starch raw – I know that people often get confused due to the cyanide content in cassava but the processing makes the amounts near to nothing! Hope this helps.
