These Gluten-Free Vegan Chocolate Fudge Truffles were inspired by their close truffle relative, my Clean Eating Strawberry Fudge Truffles that I made a couple of weeks ago.
I used the same creamy base of organic avocados but for these, I sweetened them with organic Medjool dates to keep them 100% raw.
They are soft, fudgy and not overly sweet, which how I like them.
I made them in my Vitamix and they were mixed up and ready to firm up in about 5 minutes.
Traditional store-bought truffles contain many unhealthy ingredients like these:
S.A.D. (Standard American Diet) Lindt's Dark Chocolate Truffles: Ingredients: Dark Sweet Chocolate [Sugar, Chocolate, Cocoa Butter, Skim Milk, Milkfat, Soya Lecithin (Emulsifier), Vanillin (Artificial Flavoring)], Vegetable Oil (Coconut,Palm Kernel), Sugar, Chocolate, Cocoa Butter, Milk, Soya Lecithin (Emulsifier), Barley Malt Powder, Artificial Flavors.
They contain GMO ingredients (soy lecithin) and GMO dairy (skim milk, milk fat, milk), refined white sugar, unhealthy oils, and artificial flavors.
Even homemade truffle recipes contain dairy and refined sugar.
My healthier version is made with clean, real food ingredients and it's organic, raw, vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, paleo-friendly and contains no refined sugar.
Expert Tips + Ingredient Substitutions For Gluten-Free Vegan No-Bake Chocolate Fudge Truffles
Here are some expert tips to make this recipe perfectly:
Tip #1: These are not overly sweet, but feel free to add additional dates if you prefer a sweeter truffle.
Tip #2: This recipe can be made using homemade almond milk made with a Vitamix. For more recipes that you can make with a Vitamix, visit my Vitamix Recipe Index page for more inspiration. I like to make my own homemade almond milk because I have control over the ingredients (organic, raw, unpasteurized almonds) and there are no added ingredients to it like with boxed almond milk.
