Vegan Truffle Recipe + VIDEO: True Blood Truffles

These coconut peanut butter flavored protein bombs are filled with a creamy chocolate blood beet filling and buttery flavored maca powder — the super powerful Peruvian root also known as natures Viagra. These aphrodisiac packed snacks are inspired by the wildly popular vampire show and the even wilder situations they get into. 



Vegan Chocolate Truffle Recipe

Makes 24


1/8c Grade B Maple Syrup
1/8c Virgin Coconut Oil
1/8c Raw Cacao (or the darkest chocolate you can find)
1/8c Shredded Beets
Dash Himalayan Pink Sea Salt

2c Shredded Carrot
2c Shredded Coconut (fresh or re-hydrated and drained)
3/4c Creamy Peanut Butter
1/4c Organic Grade B Maple Syrup
3/4c of Maca Powder (Need Maca Powder? Find it here.)


1. Blend filling ingredients, the consistency should be like a thick syrup, divide in 2 bowls and refrigerate for at least 10 minutes to let the mix harden.

2. Shred carrots by hand or pulse in a food processor, then press dry with a paper towel to remove as much moisture as possible

3. Then mix your truffle ingredients, the consistency should be stiff but sticky. Add more coconut oil if it’s too dry.

4. Roll mixture into 2tb round balls

5. Use your teaspoon to carefully mold a deep hole into each truffle for the filling. Dipping the spoon in water helps to prevent the stick.

6. Grab one bowl of your filling out of the freezer, you want it solid but scoopable

7. Quickly fill each truffle with 1t of filling before it melts and then pinch holes closed. Grab your other bowl of filling from the freezer and finish with the rest.

8. Now, store the goods in freezer bags

9. Chill your truffles in the freezer for an hour to set, then keep refrigerated. When you’re ready to eat let them thaw for 15 minutes so your chocolate blood flows when you bite.
