My Maca Powder arrived today and I could not wait to experiment with this new taste. Reading up about it on the web, I see it is said to have libido raising properties, that it can energise and lift your mood and other positive things and it tastes sweet and malty, what's not to love. So, after browsing a bit more, I created these truffles, a mish mash of other recipes tweaked and completely changed and mashed up and My Maca Bliss Balls, is what I have created!
This is what I did, all the ingredients are available to buy or order from us, by the way.
My Maca Bliss Balls
Soak 1/2 a cup of cashews and 1/2 a cup of walnuts in boiling hot water.
Take 10 pitted organic and Fairtrade dates and soak those in a separate bowl of boiling hot water.
Prepare the other ingredients.
Put 3 tablespoons of coconut butter in a container and put somewhere warm, or maybe put the container into hot water, so that it melts and add a drop of vanilla extract.
Then measure out 1/4 cup of Raw Cacao Powder, plus a 1/4 of a cup of Maca Powder and two tablespoons of Hemp Protein Powder.
Drain the water from the nuts and put the nuts into your superduper strong blender, not just any ordinary blender, otherwise this won't work. Then pulse and blend, until nicely combined.
Next drain the water from the dates and add them to the blender and then whizz away.
Keep blending and slowly pour the melted coconut butter with vanilla extract into the mix.
Then add the powders and blend well together, until it is all stodgy!
Put the mix into a metal container then put into the freezer, whilst you prepare the coatings for your truffles.
I used Cacao nibs on some, melted chocolate on some others and cacao powder on the ones that were left.
It's pretty much up to you how creative you get and what you'd like to do.
Once you have your coatings ready, it's time to get the mix out of the freezer and start rolling walnut sized balls, you should get around 12 to 15 balls. Then roll them in your chosen coating, put them into the fridge and then ENJOY!!
I am now going to take these home to my family to enjoy and hopefully we will have a blissed out evening.
Please let me know what you decide to coat your balls with! (Hmmm, that doesn't sound too good but you know what I mean). xxx
