Raw Vegan Truffles – Pistachio, Raspberry and Chocolate

These creamy raw vegan truffles are the easiest Valentine’s Day treat to make!  Choose from a 3 different kinds of raw truffles: chocolate truffle, raspberry truffle or pistachio truffle.  Better yet, treat yourself to all three! Rich, chocolatey truffles that are raw, vegan, gluten-free, paleo, sugar-free, and nut-free (except the pistachio one).  

 





I am trying hard to cut down on the amount of sugar I eat.  Over the holidays, I went on a sugar overload, and then participating in the vegan bake sale last week didn’t help matters.  With all the recipe testing and cookie baking I’ve done lately, I wanted to make a delicious chocolate dessert without any added sugar.  Enter raw vegan truffles.

 

 

 

Valentine’s Day is just a few days away.  Maybe you’ve got plans with your significant other.  Maybe you’ve got plans with a wine bottle like I do.  Either way, these creamy, chocolatey vegan truffles are the perfect Valentine’s Day dessert.  These truffles come together in just 5 minutes – it took longer to photograph them than it did to make!  Looks like it’ll be wine and truffles for me.

 

 

The center of these decadent truffles requires only 2 ingredients, dates and cacao powder.  No added sugar what so ever.  Just blend them in a food processor until it balls up.  Then scoop out in about 1/2 tablespoon chunks and roll into a ball.  The center of the truffle is the same for all three kinds; it’s the coating that changes the flavor.  For the coating, I chose to make some extra chocolatey with more cacao powder, then some nutty ones with crushed pistachios and finally some fruity truffles with freeze-dried raspberries.  They’re festive for Valentine’s Day, but I foresee myself eating these truffles all year round.

I used to own a coffee shop and sold store made truffles comprised of dates and pb. People bought them like made and were shocked to find out that was all they were made of! These look great
