Maca & Goji Chocolate Avocado PROTEIN Truffles!

I feel like all I really need to say about these is ‘CHOCOLATE TRUFFLES’, those 2 words alone would have me! But these aren’t just any chocolate truffles….these are Avocado chocolate truffles! I rolled half of them in ground up TruVibe Organics Goji berries and the other half have been rolled in TruVibe Organics Maca powder & then topped with Cocao Nibs, AMAZING! I promise you!

Ingredients:
1 large avocado (mine weighed in at 125grams out of skin)
110grams of semi sweet chocolate chips (1 cup)
30grams of Plant Fusion chocolate protein powder (1 scoop)
1tsp of Better Body Foods organic pure vanilla extract
Topping:
1/4cup of TruVibe Goji berries (+1/2tbsp of flour of choice)
2tbsp TruVibe Maca powder
1/2tbsp TruVibe Organic Cocao nibs (+1/2tsp agave nectar)

Place avocado in a food processor and blend until smooth. Next add in the protein powder and vanilla extract and continue to blend until well mixed. It will be pretty thick & dry at this point. Remove from food processor and place the mixture into a medium sized bowl.

Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave safe dish in the microwave for 1-1.5 minutes, stirring every 20 or so seconds. It took me just over a minute in my microwave to melt the chocolate. Pour melted chocolate on top of the avocado mixture and stir until well combined. Cover with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for at least 4 hours to firm up.

Add the goji berries with about 1/2tbsp of flour(to keep from sticking together – I used gluten free oat flour) and blend until a fine powder. Remove dough from the refrigerator and roll into balls of desired size, placing on parchment paper. Add the maca powder & goji powder into two shallow dishes/plates and roll balls into them, using your fingers to smooth all over the outer surface. Take the maca powder balls & dip the very top part into a little agave nectar and then into the cocao nibs. Store in a covered container in the refrigerator.
