Boredom strikes and truffles are made. Dark chocolate chia and flax truffles ft. Skoop to be exact.
Now before I get into the recipe, let’s talk a bit about Skoop. I tried out the A-Game the past couple of days.Skoop-A Game is full of antioxidants, 10 servings of fruits and veggies, fiber, and other goodness.Mix it with some vanilla almond/soy milk, fruit, flax seeds and you’re good to go!

Onto the recipe: this recipe is gluten-free and can be made vegan by using a vegan dark chocolate and regular unsweetened vanilla almond milk. I just wanted to finish up the protein almond milk I bought last week.This recipe only calls for six ingredients and is made with Skoop’s B-Strong Viva-nilla protein powder. It has phytonutrients, prebiotic fiber and 16g of plant-based protein goodness.Chocolate Truffle Ingredients (Makes about 10)
- 1 scoop of Skoop Viva-nilla protein powder
- 55g of Dark Chocolate (70% or higher), chopped
- 1 Tbsp Natural Peanut Butter (or your choice nut butter)
- 1-2 Tbsps of Vanilla Almond Milk
- 1tsp of ground flax & chia blend (have some handy for garnish)
- Dash of Salt
- Optional: 1/4 tsp Vanilla Extract
Take the dark chocolate, 1 Tbsp of Almond Milk, and dash of salt and place into a bowl. Put in the microwave for 20 second increments until melted (takes me about 40-60seconds). Once the chocolate is melted, stir in the peanut butter and flax/chia blend (also vanilla extract is you wanted).
Next slowly stir in the protein powder until mixture forms a “cookie dough” texture. If you find the mixture is too hard or crumbly, now is the time to add a little more almond milk (or if too liquid-y, which can happen, add some more protein powder. Usually takes me about 1 1/2 Tbsps total, but it also depends on the protein powder you choose to use.
Once the truffle mixture is formed, roll into balls and top with a bit of flax/chia blend. This mixture will make about 10 1-Tbsp sized truffles. Place into the fridge for about 20-30 minutes and then enjoy!Question: What’s your favorite plant based protein powder? I love Raw Fusion and SunWarrior’s Warrior Blend!
