Vegan Baobab Chocolate Truffles
If being Raw, Natural & Organic meant not being naughty I couldn’t do it…!!!.
This is one of my favourite treats for me & friends which I discovered from a workshop with Peter Pure whilst doing my Raw Food chef training. I often make these up & gift wrap them for those I love as they are ultra special. The taste is rich, indulgent & the pleasure will for sure delight you into a spiritual orgasm!. Who wouldn’t want that?. Be warned - they are messy to make up!
All you need is: 4 Simple Superfoods: Organic Agave Nectar, Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Cocoa Powder & Organic Baobab Powder or My Superfood Blend
15yrs ago I worked at a desk job in the city as a Director in the corporate world and lunch always consisted of a chocolate bar or two – bounty bars were my favourite!. After a couple of years I dropped the two chocolate bars and opted for a fun size bag of mini chocs believing I would only have one or two of these yummies a day. Bad idea…!!.. it wasn’t until I would reach into the bag for yet another one, that I would look accusingly at everyone close by for having eaten all my mini bars that I came to realise the unconscious culprit was me!.
I was unconsciously nibbling on these delights throughout the day without being aware or mindful that I was doing it!!. It was only until the end of each day seeing an empty bag facing me…the realisation would dawn that oops I had eaten the whole bag again. I was gaining weight, my skin was dull & I was itching all over from the sugar, chemicals & preservatives.
These Raw Chocolate Truffles were a god send to me. I could still be naughty but I was actually putting what my body actually needed into it to be healthy & glowy. These are so tasty & rich that I also found I only needed one or two rather than my usual binge. I often make a big batch of these & stick them in the freezer. I often eat them straight from the freezer or leave a handful in the fridge to nibble.
