My family and I had an amazing opportunity to spend five months in Mexico this winter.
Of course, the weather is much sunnier and hotter there than we were accustomed to here in the Canadian North. We would all crave something sweet and cool in the afternoons.
It didn't take a language degree in Spanish to see that the packaged ice cream treats from the local tiendas were full of refined sugars, hydrogenated fats and chemical additives! Five months of eating those everyday, and we wouldn't have been feeling too good.
We did have lots of milk kefir at home though so why not add calcium, magnesium, vitamin D, vitamin K and probiotics to our bodies while we enjoy a delicious treat?! Here's the recipe:
For 12 popsicles
If you love sweets and chocolate, you will love these truffles!
You'll also love that they are a worthy and healthy alternative to store bought chocolates.
I love to make these for Easter in lieu of store bought chocolate eggs which are full of hygrogenated vegetable fats, GMO's, high fructose corn syrup, artificial additives, refined sugars and tons of added calories!
In comparison, these truffles contain prebiotic fiber that feed and support your gut biome while packing serious antioxidants and healthy fats.
They are easy to make and do not require any baking.
I’ve also made these balls with almonds, just substitute a cup of shredded coconut for almond meal. These can be made very pretty by dipping in white chocolate and sprinkling dried chopped cherry on top. You can also make these with a little rum, just cut back on the honey for the amount of rum you use.
Enjoy and let me know how you enjoy them!!
