Raw Truffles Recipe – Durian Chocolate Mesquite

Hey, did I mention that I love Durian? What about Chocolate? Many, many times you say? Oh yeah, that’s right, now I remember 😉 Well I haven’t been so outspoken about Mesquite Powder, so I’ll talk about that instead this time. It’s really delicious. Really, really delicious. This is the first time I used it in a Truffles Recipe, and let’s just say that it won’t be the last


 Durian is always in mine 😉

What’s in your favorite Raw Truffles Recipe?

Mesquite is a Leguminous plant that is extremely hard and drought resistant. It has been used by Native Americans for a long time, and is useful as a sweetener and flour replacement. It’s used commonly in raw food, and is an excellent addition to any truffles recipe. Especially the chocolate ones.

It’s considered a superfood, and for good reason. It’s jam packed with nutrients, including the ever important calcium and iron.

As for the flavor, well, you can probably guess by my enthusiasm for it that it’s really freakin’ delicious. It is often described as having a caramel, nutty flavor. I’m not sure I’d say that, as it is really unique, but I struggle to come up with a better description. My suggestion is to buy, it try, and decide for yourself 🙂

If you can’t get Durian, your life sucks. Just kidding 😉

Shit, wait a minute, Durian season is almost over here. My life is gonna suck!

Wait, calm down Jonny, you’ve got a freezer full of it. Phew!

Seriously though, if you can’t get Durian, you can replace it in this truffles recipe with Banana or avocado. Something fatty to keep the consistency the same. You could also do a mix of nuts and a more watery fruit. Something like Pecans and Mango.

Also, if you’re not big on cashews (I know some people don’t like them so much, as they can be mucus forming), you can replace them with whatever nuts you like.
