I’ve been making different variations on these healthy citrus chocolate truffles for years, and I think I may have just discovered my favorite combination. Beneath the dark chocolate layer is a sweet and nutty pecan and date ball blended with the Daily C-Protect Nutrient Booster Powder from MegaFood. The powder is made from actual citrus, so in addition to adding antioxidants, it also gives the filling a lovely citrusy flavour. And of course the whole truffle is topped with fragrant and flavorful orange zest!
Needless to say, these citrus chocolate truffles are delicious! And thanks to the filling—raw pecans, dates, and the vitamin C powder—they’re actually healthy too. Just don’t eat the whole batch at once; the chocolate does have sugar in it 😏
Healthy desserts like this are so easy to make, and really do help satisfy a sweet tooth. These citrus chocolate truffles are my favourite because I adore the combination of dark chocolate and orange zest, but you can be really creative with other ingredient additions. Next time I’d love to try making an autumn-inspired truffle with cinnamon, nutmeg, and dried apples in the filling. For Christmas I will make a gingerbread one.
