Raspberry Vegan Truffles

These scrumptious little morsels are dairy-free, refined sugar-free, and are absolutely delicious! They make a great wholesome snack or dessert, and would also be wonderful for gifting. They can also be served as a frozen dessert, but they’re just as good at room temperature.


1 1/2 cups desiccated coconut
1 1/4 cups frozen raspberries
1 tbs maple syrup
200 g 70% cocoa dark chocolate


In a food processor, blitz coconut and raspberries with the maple syrup until the mixture holds its shape when pressed together. It may take a few minutes. Working quickly, form into small balls and place on a tray lined with baking paper. Place in the freezer for an hour.
STEP 2 Melt chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Remove balls from freezer and one by one, dip them in chocolate, allowing the excess to drip off. Leave to set on a sheet of baking paper.
STEP 3 Refrigerate until ready to serve.

Freezing the balls makes them easier to handle when dipping in chocolate.
You could use fresh raspberries if they are in season and abundant.

Great potato bake recipe
