- 1 ½ cups (140 grams) unsweetened medium-shredded coconut
- 2 tablespoons (20 grams) greens+ O powder, vanilla flavor *see note
- ½ cup extra-virgin coconut oil, at room temperature
To make cacao truffles, add:
- ¼ cup cacao powder
- Hemp hearts
- Chia seeds
- Unsweetened medium-shredded coconut
- Line a small baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. If you’re going to add toppings to your truffles, place a couple of tablespoons of topping ingredients in separate small bowls and set aside.
- Add coconut and greens powder to the bowl of your stand mixer or food processor with dough blade, or a large bowl and use a handheld mixer. Mix until coconut is covered in greens, then add coconut oil.
- Mix until everything is combined. The mixture should hold together nicely.
- Scoop dough, about 1 tablespoon at a time, into the palm of your hand. Roll lightly and place on prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough. Mixture should make 14 truffles.
- Once completed, transfer baking sheet to the fridge to cool for 15 minutes.
- Store in an air-tight container in the fridge for 5 days, or freezer for 2 months.

Greens powder: Greens+O is lightly sweetened with stevia and the flavor I used, vanilla, adds good flavor to the truffles. If you use a different greens powder for this recipe, make sure it’s one that you really love as the flavor will come through on this! Also, there is a touch of grain in Greens+O however, because of the fermentation, I find that it doesn’t affect me whatsoever. If you can’t find a greens powder that works for you, feel free to replace the greens powder with 10 drops of stevia and 2 teaspoons of matcha powder or an equal amount (20 grams) or protein powder.
Various flavors: if you want to do a half-batch of chocolate like I did, separate the dough in half and add 2 tablespoons of cacao powder to the half, mix to combine, then follow the instructions.
Nutrition information: If you’re looking for this recipe to replace your daily dose of greens powder, the recipe calls for 20 grams, that’s about 3 servings of greens powder. The recipe makes 14 truffles, so that’s about 4-5 truffles per serving. The nutrition information outlines the stats for 1 truffle with the basic ingredients only. No cacao powder or toppings.
