Dark Chocolate Truffle Bites

Clean Lean Protein   recipe

Recipe by Charissa & Co

All heard of the saying dark chocolate is good for you as it is high in antioxidants, but not too sure what it actually makes it so good apart from being delicious.


Dark raw chocolate, is known to be one of the high alkalising minerals, with this it also provides the body with a good dose of antioxidants known as polyphenols, improving our blood flow, along with the flavonal-rich content, we improve the level of nitric oxide levels within our blood, therefore relaxing our arteries as they expand to allow more blood to flow freely. 


This being said, the easier the blood flow the more circulation we get throughout the entire body, especially for us ladies.

Therefore, I love the fact that #Nuzest use dark quality cacao in their Clean Lean Protein. Free from processed cocoa, allowing our bodies to receive the full benefits of what cacao brings us.


I also end up adding a lot of cacao nibs to my smoothies, I find that raw cacao is great for reducing any inflammation, also adding it is great for our oral hygiene, thanks to the anti-bacterial effects it holds.


Always remember to select cocoa sources that have a high flavanol content — the less processed, the better.

Yacon Syrup is something I often find key in using in most of my recipes when there is a need for a little added sweetness. 






DIY Raw choc.


  • 1 Cup coconut oil
  • 1 Cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 Serve of Nuzest Clean Lean Chocolate 
  • 1 Teaspoon of Vanilla extract
  • 1/2 Cup of Yacon Syrup
  • 1 Tablespoon of smooth almond butter


Start first by placing the hazelnut flour into the food processor, adding all your other ingredients, once all ingredients of the filling is added to the the food processor, blend until you get a sticky dough-like consistency.


Then start by rolling your balls, either using a teaspoon, rolling 2 teaspoons into one size balls, this makes a perfect little bit size.


Once the balls are made, keep them cool in the freezer for 20min (ensure they are covered) after 20min you can remove them and cover them with the chocolate coating.


For the chocolate coating, sure the coconut oil is at runny, then start by mixing all the ingredients together until smooth. I sometimes just use my blender to ensure it is smooth and runny.


Cover the balls in your chocolate coating and allow the coating to harden in the fridge for 1 hour.
