Raw treats and desserts seem to be getting better and better these days! Creativity is really shining through and higher quality ingredients are more available now than ever, making the way for tasty raw versions of dessert classics. ChocAlive truffles are no exception. They are absolutely wonderful gourmet truffles and will be loved by everyone, whether they are crazy about raw chocolate or just love a scrumptious sweet treat.
The thing i love most about these truffles are their consistency. The center is perfectly smooth, silky and melt in your mouth. I tried the Speciality Sampler pack which included 6 truffles all together: 2 dark chocolate, 2 coconut and 2 chocolate chip truffles. My favorite was the coconut flavor, the delicate crunch of dried coconut shavings pairs so well with the rich texture and sweetness of the chocolate. These are very dense truffles, so after eating 1 or 2 your sweet tooth will be satisfied. They are definitely a dessert to savor and share with a friend. Another idea is to keep them in the fridge so they are nice and solid, and cut into tiny pieces to top a bowl of raw granola with vanilla bean almond mylk. Break all the rules, have nutrient rich, antioxidant power house chocolate for breakfast!
The ingredients are pretty simple. They are made from raw organic Ecuadorian cocoa powder and cocoa butter, raw organic coconut butter containing both the oil and fiber, organic sun dried dates, raw organic Mexican agave nectar, and unrefined sea salt. This is the base of the truffle. Other ingredients vary depending on what flavor you choose. They come rolled in almonds, dried coconut shavings, crunchy cacao nibs, walnuts, pistachios and there is even a Mint Chip flavor with organic peppermint extract in it. Yum! All the ingredients are raw and organic, sweeteners are whole and unrefined, and they are vegan and gluten free. The ChocAlive company is also totally beautiful and dedicated to the health and well being of their customers wholeheartedly. This is why we at RawGuru are so happy to be able to offer them to you!
Try sharing these with a non-health food interested friend or loved one. They will not believe that these truffles are actually as good for the body as they are delicious!
