These white chocolate truffles with beetroot powder, which need only a few ingredients and very easy to make, are decadent, sweet, smooth and creamy. They are a wonderful after-dinner treat with a rich espresso shot and will also make the perfect gift.

  • 3 tbsp Almond milk
  • 2 tbsp Coconut oil
  • 10 g Beetroot powder
  • 200 g White chocolate, cut into small pieces
  • Unsweetened coconut flakes
  1. Place almond milk and coconut oil in a small saucepan over low heat. Cook until the coconut oil is melted and well combined with almond milk. Now stir int beetroot powder until well combined.
  2. Place the chopped white chocolate in a heatproof bowl and set over a pot of simmering water, making sure the water doesn’t touch the bottom of the bowl.
  3. Stir chocolate occasionally as it softens. When you have just a few small unmelted chunks, remove bowl from heat (residual heat will melt the rest).
  4. Now stir in the beetroot mixture until well combined. Cover and chill for 1 hour or until pliable but firm enough to scoop.
  5. Place coconut flakes in a bowl. Working quickly roll a teaspoon of truffle mixture into a ball and gently roll with coconut flakes until evenly coated.
