My hand is a magnet for these Vegan Chocolate Orange Mousse Truffles. Can’t stop, won’t stop! I’ve updated these truffles for December 2019 to include a softer texture, almost mousse like, made from avocado, raw cacao, coconut oil and sweetened with fresh orange and a touch of maple, or honey if you’re not vegan, and dusted in a raw cacao.
WHAT MAKES THESE THE BEST VEGAN CHOCOLATE ORANGE MOUSSE TRUFFLES?
These vegan chocolate orange truffles are my little festive bites of happiness for Christmas. What makes these super delicious is their smooth texture. They’re not hard like truffles, so don’t expect that, so they’re best stored in the freezer and then allowed to soften a little before eating. They’re also much lower in sugar, using just a little maple and fresh orange juice making them a healthier choice.
Truffles don’t need to be packed full of sugar to be delicious. I see so many so called healthy treats filled with crazy amounts of alternative sweeteners like dates. Whilst yes, dates are better for you in terms of their nutrient value than refined table sugar, they’re still very high in sugar. A few is enough to sweeten a whole cake.
These Vegan Chocolate Orange Mousse Truffles are a naturally lower, refined sugar free option for those of you watching your sugar intake this Christmas.
Happy Christmas everyone… technically ok to say that now with just one more sleep to Christmas. Thank you so much for all your amazing support this year. I couldn’t do what I do without all your encouragement.
