Dark Chocolate Avocado Truffles


A deviously delicious truffle, calling for heart-healthy avocado instead of dairy! 

Authored by: Mona Eberle Naturopathic Practitioner, Nutritional Therapist, Neurofeedback Clinician 



  • 6 oz. dark chocolate (I love the Belgian chocolate at Trader Joe’s)
  • 1/3 cup mashed avocado (about 1 avocado)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Bourbon or regular vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder, for rolling (optional)

  1. Combine the chocolate, vanilla extract, and pinch of salt over a double boiler, and melt until completely smooth. (I just use an oven-safe bowl over my small saucepan for this.) Mash the avocado with a fork until no lumps are visible, then stir it into the melted chocolate mixture until smooth and thickened. Place in the fridge to set for 20 minutes, or until slightly firm to the touch.

  2. Once the mixture has been chilled and is slightly firm, use a tablespoon to scoop the chocolate into 12 balls. Place them on a pan lined with parchment paper, and roll the balls between the palms of your hand to create a smooth surface. Be warned: this gets messy!

  3. Place the 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder in a small bowl, and roll each truffle into the cocoa to coat. Serve at room temperature, but store in the fridge for longer-lasting shelf life.
