Delicious Chocolate Truffles Only 30 Calories Each

Chocolate can be very difficult to avoid.  So if you’re following our 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge we say “Don’t avoid it!

While most diets take a “don’t even think about it” approach to chocolate, we feel a healthy, sustainable lifestyle is all about balance, moderation and healthy swaps.

You can decorate these with desiccated coconut, cacao, raw buckwheat or even our yummy Super Greens for a fruity twist!

Chocolate Truffles

Dark chocolate has half the sugar, four times the fibre and nearly four times the magnesium of milk chocolate. It also boasts more potassium, more immune supporting zinc and less cholesterol than milk chocolate. More than enough reasons to join the dark side!

So today we have this incredible chocolate truffle recipe for you from Shelley, a member of our Healthy Mummy Community.

Instructions
  1. Melt chocolate of a low heat using your preferred method.
  2. Stir chocolate into yoghurt and blend well.
  3. Pop in fridge to set for 1 hour
  4. Remove from the fridge, take teaspoon size amount of mixture and roll into balls. You will need to work fast at this stage, as the mixture will begin to soften quickly due to the heat in your hands.
  5. Place onto baking paper and keep stored in the fridge.
  6. If you choose to coat the truffles, now is the time. We used a variety of different coatings including cacao, coconut, chia seeds and raw buckwheat.
  7. These taste best if consumed within a few days.
  8. Please note - the calorie count does not include various coatings.
