Coconut Cream Truffles (SF, GF, DF) Follow Me on Pinterest

I love these coconut cream truffles. I pretty much love any form of truffle. However, since starting out on my healing journey, many things are off limits for me, like sugar (even “non” sugar like stevia) and chocolate. Once evening this summer, I needed something sweet. A little treat to tide me over. This recipe was born.

This coconut cream truffle recipe has no added sugar, but if you want to sweeten it up a bit, feel free to add a little sweetener of your choice. I found that these were sweet enough for me, just from the natural sweetness of the coconut, but that is also because I am super sensitive to sweets now that I have not had any sugar in three months! They taste great cold, but they are even better if you let them warm up to room temperature before enjoying. Store them in an airtight container in the fridge … if they last that long! 😉

I get all of my vanilla beans and other vanilla goodies from Beanilla. I’ve tried a ton of brands of vanilla and vanilla beans and Beanilla is by far the best quality I’ve found! Make sure you check out their Bean Bucks Rewards program so you can save on future orders.

PLEASE READ!!!! Quick note about “coconut cream concentrate” and “coconut butter”, since I get asked this all the time.

Whenever I refer to those two terms in my recipes, it means the product that is super finely ground coconut meat, which has a consistency similar to a nut butter. It’s not referring to coconut milk or coconut cream (the liquid beverage-type products), and it’s not referring to those vegan “butters” that often use coconut oil in them.

You cannot substitute dairy butter for coconut butter, nor can you substitute coconut oil for coconut butter.

Please read this post where I talk about coconut products in detail and clear up the common confusion with ingredient names.

Also, the texture of the cookies may vary depending in the brand(s) of coconut products you use. I have found in my years of cooking that there can be a big difference between brands of coconut products and how they work in recipes. For this recipe, I found I got the best results when I used coconut cream concentrate from Tropical Traditions and coconut flour from my local health food store. If you find that your dough is too dry, just add a tablespoon or two of coconut milk (or milk of your choice) to the mix until you get the right consistency.

  3. Would an immersion blender work for this recipe or vitamix?
    Thank you!

    • The vitamix would probably work great! Not sure about the immersion blender. If your ingredients are super soft and liquidy, it probably would. I would definitely try the vitamix! 🙂

  4. This looks like a great recipe. Do you know if it would work with homemade coconut milk or should it have the thicker texture of the canned?

    reply 
    • Amanda – It should work fine with homemade, but I would add a little less, since the homemade is typically very thin. Maybe start with half and see what the “batter” looks like. 🙂

    • Hi Tina – You should be able to figure out the nutritional breakdown by checking the labels for the ingredients you use. Enjoy! 🙂

  6. I just made these and they turned out fantastic! I replaced the coconut milk with 1/3 cup of fresh squeezed orange and it gave them a lovely, very tropical flavour.
    Thanks for the idea.
