Protein Chocolate Truffles

 

There’s nothing nicer than a perfect chocolate truffle… except maybe a protein chocolate truffle! These chocolate truffles are so chocolaty and delicious they’re the perfect treat if you’re a chocolate lover! But you’ll never guess what secret ingredient makes these truffles so soft and perfect…

 

Ingredients

 

To make these truffles you’ll need…. An avocado! That’s right the secret ingredient is an avocado. Avocados are known to be super healthy providing high amounts of vitamin E and mono unsaturated fats! But that’s not all, here’s what else you’ll need to make 10 truffles:

 

1 Avocado

2 squirts of Myprotein Toffee Flavdrops (optional, but gives a nicer taste)

1 Tablespoon of sweetener

60g, 2 scoops on Myprotein Hot chocolate powder – (this is not the same as using whey protein, but can be substituted for chocolate casein powder)

1 tablespoon of cocoa powder

1 large bar of dark chocolate (70-80%)

The Preparation

 

Step One

 

Chop your avocado and remove the skin and stone. Using a hand blender mash and blend your avocado.

 

Step Two

 

To your avocado add 1 tablespoon of sweetener Myprotein Flavdrops and cocoa powder and mix well.

 

Step Three

 

Add in your two scoops of Myprotein hot chocolate and stir.

 

The reason for using Myprotein Hot chocolate is because this stuff is made using milk protein and when added to the avocado mixture you get a thicker and stiffer consistency than if you were to use whey protein.

 

Step Four

 

Line a baking tray with grease proof paper. Using two teaspoons scoop little balls of the mixture onto your grease proof paper. When you’ve used up all the mixture, place the tray in the freezer for ten minutes.

Step Five

 

Whilst your truffle centers are in the freezer, melt your bar of dark chocolate either in the microwave, or for best results using a bowl over a pan of boiling water.

 

Step Six

 

Remove your truffle center from the center and dip into the melted chocolate making sure they are completely covered. Once coated put them back on the baking tray and back into the freezer for 15 minutes.

 

The Eating

 

Remove your truffles from the freezer and peel off the greaseproof paper. Store these truffles in the fridge for best results!

 

Enjoy your super chocolate truffles!
