  • 1 Blender or food processor
  • 1 Small bowl


  • 1 ready cooked (vacuum packed) beetroot
  • 1 large ripe avocado peeled
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 100 g cacao powder unsweetened plus extra for dusting
  • Desiccated coconut for dusting


  • Put the beetroot, avocado, vanilla extract, maple syrup and half of the cacao powder into a blender or food processor. Process until well combined.
  • Add the remaining cacao powder to the blender and again process until well combined.
  • Transfer the chocolate mixture to a small bowl. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour.
  • Once chilled, scoop tablespoon-sized portions of the mixture. Roll in your palms to form balls – the mixture will be slightly sticky but should form balls easily.
  • Put some extra cacao powder and desiccated coconut in a plate and roll the chocolate truffles around in one or the other to coat.
