Gluten-Free, Vegan Chocolate Strawberry Truffles

Who doesn't love a chocolate truffle? These decadent, bite-sized desserts evoke feelings of luxury and romance — even more so when they're combined with strawberries.

These gluten-free and vegan truffles are made with all-natural ingredients, and get their sweetness from dates and strawberries. That's right — no added sugar or sweetener! These chocolate strawberry truffles make the perfect raw dessert, snack or gift. You can find more delicious, healthy chocolate recipes in my new book, Chocolate Indulgence. Whip up a batch and see for yourself!

Ingredients:

3 cups walnuts
1 cup of soaked and pitted dates (soak until soft in filtered water)
5 strawberries
6 tablespoons cacao powder

Topping Suggestions:

Shredded organic unsweetened coconut
Cinnamon
Chopped nuts

Directions:

Blend walnuts in food processor. Add in dates and strawberries. Add cacao and continue to blend until all mixed well. Remove mixture to a bowl and place in the freezer for about 30 minutes to firm up.

Remove from freezer and roll into truffle-sized balls. Roll in your topping of choice.
