How to make Dark Chocolate & Strawberry Truffles
For these truffles, you need just 4 ingredients and some strawberries! There’s no oil or sugar in these truffles and the ingredients are au naturel!
I love these truffles because not only are they delicious and addictive, they are healthy and packed with healthy fats and protein!
You will need:
- Avocados. Avocados are one of my favourite ingredients ever. They’re not just amazing with Mexican dishes (or all savoury dishes) they’re also amazing to add to your baking. And so to speak, ‘the proof is in the pudding’. Literally.
- Dates – another ingredient I love. They add a natural sweetness to these truffles without adding any sugar or sweetener. I used soft dates, but if your dates are a bit harder you can soak them in boiling water to soften up.
- Raw Cacao Powder. You can also use dark cocoa powder, but Raw Cacao powder is packed with iron, magnesium and antioxidants and we all love those, right?
- Protein Powder. Have I mentioned that I love Protein Powder? I like adding protein powder wherever I can, especially in recipes like these! Not only does it make them more nutritious, but it also sweetens them!
I was gifted some Vegan Protein Powder from a lovely Plant-Based Protein & Superfoods company called Honest Earth. I really love these products as they have SO MANY health benefits! They are made from split peas and contain digestive enzymes, turmeric and black pepper. These ingredients are not only AMAZING for your gut and metabolism, but help loads with muscle recovery!
Honest Earth’s products are also all chemical & cruelty free and contain no artificial sweeteners or thickeners!

Back to the recipe, of course. Add the above ingredients into a blender or food processor and blend until a thick dough ball forms. Gather some fresh strawberries and cover them in the truffle batter and roll into a ball. Dust them with some more cacao powder and a pinch of salt!

Dark Chocolate & Strawberry Truffles
- blender or food processor
- 2 Medium Avocado (around 250 grams)
- 100 grams Soft Dates *
- 50 grams Cacao or Cocoa Powder
- 60 grams Vegan Protein Powder *
- Extra Cocoa (for dusting)
- Pinch of salt
- Add the soft dates to a blender or food processor and pulse until it turns into a paste-like consistency. You can add in up to 1 tbsp of water if necessary without affecting the recipe.
- Add in the avocado and blend.
- Add in the cacao and protein powder and blend. You may have to scrape down the sides a couple of times. If your batter is too thick to blend, remove from the blender and mash with a fork!
- Remove the stems from the strawberries.
- Take around 1.5 tbsp of the truffle batter and create a flat disk shape in your hand. Place a strawberry in the middle and gently roll the batter around it, forming a ball.
- Repeat until you have no batter left. You could also make some without strawberries in the middle!
- Place on a tray and refrigerate for around 30 minutes. Remove from the fridge and roll the truffles in cocoa powder. Sprinkle some salt over if you like and enjoy!
- If your dates aren’t soft, soak them in boiling water! I use soft dates and still soak them!
- You can sub the protein powder with cocoa powder and vice versa!
- Store these in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
- You can also keep these in the freezer for around a month!
