Raw Strawberry Chocolate Truffles

Makes 20
Preparation time 10 minutes (+ 2 hrs to freeze)

Truffles remind me of christmas and huddling away from the cold by a blazing fire, but let's face it, they are way too good to be reserved for the cold months alone. So today I made a summer version, that can be frozen and eaten cold, a heavenly bite of indulgence that will also cool you down on a hot summer day. Perfect accompanied by... you guessed it, champagne and fresh strawberries!

160 gr of sliced strawberries
6 T of cocao powder
8 T of melted coconut butter
2 T brown rice syrup (or another liquid sweetener)
a teeny tiny pinch of salt
2 T shredded coconut (optional)
2 T of cacao nibs (optional)

Combine all the ingredients in a medium sized bowl and mash really well with a fork until the strawberries have blended down and become smooth. Scoop out into a cake pop mould or ice cube moulds and put in the freezer for a couple of hours at least. Thaw out for a good 20 minutes before eating. 

Vive l'été!
