Vegan Strawberry Truffles

Vegan Strawberry Truffles

Here at Terry Berries we decided to try something a little different that all our vegan customers can enjoy! These vegan strawberry creme truffles not only taste great, but are probably one of the healthiest strawberry desserts out there. Click below the link to see a list of ingredients and instructions: Ingredients: – for the chocolate: 1 cup coconut oil (melted)  1/2 cup raw cacao powder 1/4 cup agave nectar  – for the creme filling: 1/2 cup sunflower seed butter 1.5 cups Terry Berries (we used the Gaviota variety) 1/2 cup coconut oil 2 tbsp agave nectar 1/2 tsp vanilla extract 1/2 lemon (juiced)  Instructions: Add all ingredients for the creme filling into a food processor & process until smooth and creamy Put all ingredients for the chocolate into a bowl and stir until well-combined Using a chocolate mold, ice cube tray, or mini muffin pan (we used a mini muffin pan for ours), drop a tbsp of chocolate into each tray Drop a tbsp of creme filling on top of each tbsp of chocolate Add another tbsp of chocolate on top of the creme, sandwiching the creme in the middle Put in the freezer for 30min or until hardened (we waited 60min just to be safe) Remove from the freezer & enjoy! Notes: The best type of pan to use to mold these truffles is probably a mini-brownie pan with removable sides as it can be very difficult to pop the truffles out of the other types of pans Be aware that these truffles melt quickly! Only remove from the freezer when you are ready to enjoy them... read more
