Coconut and Acai Berry Truffles

We love superfoods – and especially the wonderful super-combination of coconut and acai! Packed full of antioxidants and polyphenols to keep us healthy and nourished, acai berries are used throughout the world for their amazing benefits. Just like coconuts, they are also rich in essential fatty acids and help you look and feel your best, inside and out! Our amazing Contributing Chef Kelly Barlow (@EatPrayCook_) shares with us a stellar recipe combining these two fantastic ingredients – coconut and acai berry truffles that are free from refined sugar, gluten and dairy!
What you’ll need:

For the filling:
- 200g raw Coconut Chips
- 1 tablespoon Coconut Butter
- 3 tbsp maple syrup (or Coconut Syrup, if you’re feeling extra coconutty!)
- ½ tsp salt

For the coating:
40g cacao butter (hint: chop it up to help it melt quicker!)
2 tbsp cashew butter
1.5 tbsp sweetener (Coconut Syrup, maple or even Coconut Honey)
12 Acai berry capsules
Desiccated Coconut
- Baking paper
Let’s get started!

1. First, mix all the filling ingredients in your food processor, and blend until smooth.
2. Spread the mixture evenly on some baking paper, and pop in the fridge for five minutes to set while you make the sauce.
3. Then, on a low heat, melt the chopped cacao butter in a bowl over a pan of hot water.
4. Then, add the remaining coating ingredients, and mix til even!
5. Set aside and allow to cool.
6. Remove the filling from the fridge and roll into balls with the palms of your hands, dip them into the sauce with a spoon, and then set them on some baking paper.
7. Cool the truffles in the fridge, and once cool, double-dip in the remaining sauce.
8. Top with some desiccated coconut, set in the fridge, and enjoy!
