  • 10 pitted dates soft, not dried
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 scoops vanilla protein powder

  • 2 Tbsp water
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • candy canes


  • Place dates, cocoa, protein powder, vanilla, salt, & water in the food processor or blender.
  • Pulse for 1-2 minutes until the mixture is smooth (your machine might need more water but try to use as little as possible for rich, creamy truffles)
  • Melt chocolate chips in the microwave.
  • Use a rubber spatula to add the chocolate into the blender and pulse it again to incorporate it. Refrigerate mixture at least 15 minutes.
  • In the meantime, crush the candy canes and place them in a shallow dish.
  • Scoop the chilled mixture one heaping teaspoons at a time and form into small balls.
  • Drop each truffle into the crushed candy canes and coat evenly.
  • Keep refrigerated until you're ready to enjoy!
