Totally Tropical Truffles – sound good don’t they? Except, they probably aren’t what you are thinking…
These contain no added sugar and only good fats. No artificial flavours and no trans fats in these. What makes them tropical you might be asking? Well, they contain dried banana, dried mangos and dried papaya. Plus coated in desiccated coconut, I’m sure you’ll agree they all add up to something fairly tropical. Think of them as the 'Um Bungo' of the truffle world if you will…
To make these I blended them in my Optimum 9400 from Froothie. This is a blender, but no ordinary blender.
The Optimum 9400 is a commercial-grade super blender designed for longevity, versatility and BRAWN. Stronger, faster and more powerful than a Vitamix, the Optimum 9400 will set you up to make amazing soups, the silkiest smoothies, super smooth dips, nut butters, ice cream and more. This is the best blender you'll ever use and the last blender you'll ever need. Once you try it, you'll wish you'd had it all your life. A few features you're going to love:
· Easy to use, with a highly responsive dial
· 6 blade assembly creates a vortex that will suck your ingredients down and make blending a breeze
· Super easy to clean and maintain by simply blending water in the jug at high speed
As you can see, I had no fear of whizzing the ingredients up in the blender. They came together in a ball of tasty stickiness which I transferred to the fridge to set for a few hours.
When they came out of the fridge, I rolled them into balls and then coated them in the coconut and let them chill again until ready to eat.
The predominant flavour in these truffles is banana, with the mango and papaya subtly coming through in the background. Plus you get the coconut flavour on the outside.
