Here's another great FMS-friendly dish from one of my favorite nutritionists, Lauren Hoover-West. (Visit Lauren's blog to see all her recipes.)

Lauren's Chocolate Truffles

These are so creamy that you'll never miss the dairy! They are rich and chocolaty and melt in your mouth.

Yields: Approximately 40 truffles

Ingredients

For Truffle Filling:

  • 12 ounces dairy-free, gluten-free chocolate chips (I recommend Lilly's Stevia Sweetened or Enjoy Life)
  • 1 1/4 cups regular coconut milk (not light)
  • 1 tsp gluten-free vanilla extract or seeds of 1 vanilla bean
  • 1 drop coffee extract or 1/8 tsp instant espresso

For Toppings:

  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 cup chopped pecans or nuts of choice
  • 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted

Directions

  1. Place topping ingredients into separate bowls and set aside.
  2. Place chocolate in a metal or glass bowl and set aside.
  3. Put coconut milk in a sauce pot and bring to a boil. Then turn off heat.
  4. Pour chopped chocolate into hot coconut milk, making it into a Ganache. Let it sit for 2 minutes and then whisk until smooth and well mixed.
  5. Add 1 tsp gluten-free vanilla extract, or seeds of 1 vanilla bean, with coffee extract and whisk.
  6. Chill the Ganache in the refrigerator until it is completely set and thick like fudge (about 4 hours).
  7. Scoop with a small ice cream scooper and roll into your choice of the toppings you set aside.

Keep in an airtight container. They'll remain fresh for a week if in a refrigerator, or a month or two if in a freezer.

Be Well & Thrive,
