Chocolate Avocado Truffles Instructions

Step #1:  Melt dark chocolate slowly

Step #2:  In a different bowl, mash avocado. When the chocolate is melted, combine it with the mashed avocado and stir them together.  Then add in the vanilla, cinnamon and stevia.

Step #3:  When this is combined and free of clumps, place in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes. When cooled and hardened, scoop it into 10-12 balls and roll them until they are smooth.

Step #4:  Roll each ball in cocoa powder and serve.

Step #5:  Place any leftover truffles in an air tight container in the refrigerator.

Dr Jockers Comments

These chocolate avocado truffles are a fantastic dessert recipe that is low-carb, ketogenic and fat burning.  The combination of avocado and dark chocolate provides healthy fats, fiber and anti-oxidants to help the body produce good hormones that optimize your metabolism.

Stevia is our favorite natural sweetener because it is one hundred times sweeter than sugar and has no effect on blood sugar.  Adding in the cinnamon gives a unique cinnamon flavor and adds in more anti-oxidants that support blood sugar signaling patterns.

This recipe is very easy to make and your family will absolutely LOVE it and be requesting this often!  Perfect for birthdays, special events and gatherings!  Let us know how you enjoyed the recipe in the comments box below!

    Hi Dr Jockers I have been using stevia extract since 1985. Recently, and much to my horror, I read that stevia, while low on the glycemic index , raises
    insulin more than table sugar. Is this true?

    Is there a exchange for taking out the stevia and using honey?

    • Dr. Jockers March 6, 2017 at 7:46 am #

      Yes, I recommend 1 tsp of honey for 5-10 drops of stevia. If you like it real sweet than do 1 tsp for 5 drops and if you want it less sweet than do 1 tsp for 10 drops.

    I have (2) 1oz squares of unsweetened chocolate. Can I use this? If so, how much or do I not have enough? Recipe calls for 3/4 cup.
