Date, Almond and Brazil Nut Truffles

A healthy treat to keep your chocolate craving at bay.



  1. Place the dates, almonds, coco powder, lime rind and juice in a food processor and blend until the mixture forms a stiff ball - adding more lime juice if necessary to help bring the mixture together
  2. Remove blade and roll date mixture into balls. Place in truffle cases or roll into balls and fill each with a Brazil (or macadamia) nut. Roll in extra chopped nuts too, if you like.
  3. Cover and keep in the fridge for up to 3 days.
  4. Note: you can also dust your truffle in coco powder, coconut or chopped nuts for that extra treat!
