#GoodGirlTreats are definitely in order for the start of a new week! Because, what’s life without a good, healthy, sugar-free treat? Right?
So you guys, in order to maintain my #GoodGirl status, I had a serious conversation with myself. And I literally almost always do! Me, myself and I go at it quite a lot.
Me to Me: You’re going to treat yourself to these sugar free white chocolate truffles okay?
Also Me to Me: You are disciplined! You are going to have ONE TREAT A DAY! Because, no matter how healthy, a treat is still just that; A TREAT!
And, it might interest you, dear readers, to know that I stacked up on my #GoodGirlPoints! I listened to me!
Now, t’s your turn to have your #GoodGirlConvo with yourself, and MAKE THESE WHITE CHOCOLATE TRUFFLES!!!! Because they are life-changing! #ExaggerateMuch?
VEGAN, SUGAR-FREE WHITE CHOCOLATE TRUFFLES:
1/2 cup raw macadamia nuts
1 1/2 cups finely shredded coconut. (This is really easy to make at home, but if store-bought, they are sometimes labeled desiccated coconuts) + extra for rolling1/4 cup organic cocoa butter, melteddate paste to taste1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
a hint of sea salt
Add macadamia nuts and shredded/desiccated coconut to a food processor and mix until a creamy paste is formed. Scrape down sides with a spatula, as needed.Add in the melted cocoa butter, date paste, pure vanilla extract, and sea salt.Process once more to combine all ingredients. At this point, taste and adjust flavor as preferred.Transfer the mixture to a bowl/plate and refrigerate (NOT FREEZE) for about an hour or until it’s firm enough.Remove your bowl/plate containing mixture from refrigerator once ready, and use a tablespoon to scoop rounded forms of truffles.Gently roll into balls; **DO NOT roll too much, or cocoa butter begins to melt.Once your round ball of white chocolate is formed, roll in the extra finely shredded/desiccated coconut that has been set aside.Repeat until all truffles are rolled in shredded coconut.Refrigerate for about 20 minutes to firm them up again.ENJOY!!!
P.S. Store leftovers in a tightly capped storage container, in refrigerator/freezer (depending on how soon how you’re going to eat them). Remove and let ‘thaw’ for about 5 minutes before eating.
