Chocolate Avocado Protein Truffles

I’m a big chocolate fan, and if I can sneak in some healthy fat and protein into a treat, even better! Luckily, chocolate and avocado actually pair perfectly together! Typically, you’ll see chocolate and avocado paired in a mousse or a pudding, but these truffles are a delicious way to enjoy a sweet treat with a bit of healthy fat and protein.

They’re made with just a few simple ingredients like avocado, cocoa powder, and collagen, and require zero cooking. Seriously, my kind of snack!

The Ingredients for the Chocolate Avocado Protein Truffles

  • Avocado
  • Dairy-free chocolate chips
  • Cocoa powder
  • Collagen peptides
  • Sea salt

How to Make Chocolate Avocado Protein Truffles

  • Blend: the avocado and collagen in a food processor.
  • Melt the chocolate: Pour the chocolate chips into a mixing bowl along with the coconut oil and melt using your preferred method.
  • Combine and chill: Use a rubber spatula to add the avocado mixture to the melted chocolate and stir well to fully combine. Transfer to the fridge and allow to chill for 20-30 minutes or until the mixture is easy to mold.
  • Roll the truffles and coat: Line a plate with parchment paper and roll the avocado mixture into 5-6 small, round truffles. Roll the truffles in cocoa powder until well coated and top with sea salt.

  • Store in the fridge and serve chilled.

 

What chocolate chips should you use?

I like to use enjoy life chocolate chips! I love the flavor, and they melt great. You can try other chocolate options that you prefer as well.

Can you use something other than chocolate chips?

You can also use homemade carob chips to make it AIP!

What collagen powder should you use? Can you use something else instead?

I love using Vital Proteins collagen powder, however, you can use another collagen that you have on hand. You can try and use something like a protein powder as well.

How long do these last? How do you store them?

They’ll last for 2-3 days in the fridge when stored in an air-tight glass container. You can also try to freeze them to extend it!
