vegan superfood organic raw sugar free chocolate truffles

raw cacao truffles

 These are handcrafted, 100% organic, fairtrade raw truffles. They are made of the highest quality cacaco and maca which are both considered superfoods. The cacao is extremely high in antioxidants, and maca has been known to nourish the endocrine system, increasing stamina and libido, among many other benefits. 

 if you prefer to order them already made you can purchase them ready made here:

The ingredients are organic fair trade raw cacao, organic maca, organic coconut milk, almonds, pure bourbon vanilla extract, and liquid alcohol free stevia. These are made to order so they can be made to your specifications. This price is for two large truffles in a beautiful handmade paper mache box, but larger orders can be placed as well. The truffles are raw, so they should be refrigerated until the day that they will be consumed for the best flavor. They are best served at room temperature.

These truffles were developed because January 1, 2012 I went on a mostly vegan sugar free diet. My mother sells very good quality chocolate, and was shipping me a large box every month for the past year. I had to give up the chocolate because of the sugar. The thought of Valentine's Day without chocolate was unbearable to me, so I started experimenting with raw cacao and stevia. After many attempts I became the designated chocolatier for a weekly chocolate party. I realized at this point that if people prefer my sugar free chocolate to other chocolate, I should branch out, Here you go world! I hope that you enjoy this as much as I do! It not only tastes great, but it makes me feel great. I hope that it does the same for you.
