Nut Butter Truffles


2013/03/26 by nikkiledford

If you made my truffles from last week, and you thought to yourself, “what else can I do with all this delicious ganache?” Well, do I have the answer for YOU!

Nut Butter Truffles

2 packs dark chocolate chips (70%, mine was from whole foods)
1 can coconut milk
1/2 -1 c. nut butter (i used freshly made almond and cashew butter)
sea salt

small baking cups arranged on a baking sheet

  1. In a small pot, heat the 1 c. coconut milk until hot but not boiling.
  2. In a small metal bowl, pour one package of chocolate chips.
  3. Add hot milk and stir until smooth and glassy
  4. Drop a small amount in the bottom of a baking cup. Continue with the rest of the cups.
  5. Roll up small pieces of nut butter and place them in the middle of the cup, leaving some room around the sides.
  6. Make the rest of the ganache.
  7. Using a spoon, drop the ganache on the nut butter and gently pat down to fill the cup. Continue with the rest of cups and chocolate.
  8. Sprinkle some sea salt on top.
  9. Put the tray in the fridge for the truffles to set.
  10. EAT (and maybe share)

Carnitas Bowls for everybody! And by everybody, I mean all my super special clients who will be eating well this week 🌶 Mango Chili Lime Chicken Salad 🥑🍋🌶🥒
This was SO EASY to throw together.
The MVPs
1. Chili lime seasoning from Trader Joe's 
2. Mango Salsa from Costco (I blame @girlsgonewodpodcast for this discovery).
Marinate the chicken thighs in lemon/lime juice and chili seasoning before putting on the grill.
Chop up cucumber and shred some cabbage.
Mix together chopped grilled chicken, salsa, cuke, cabbage, and too with some avocado. ☀️🥗☀️🥗☀️ Geoff has decided to try the keto diet which means more toast for me 😏 Doin' it.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
Be back later!
