If you’re anything like me, you’re always craving something sweet (and often times unhealthy). Fortunately, there are ways to create amazingly delicious versions of the best unhealthy desserts by just swapping the bad ingredients with good ones. I first made this recipe with my best friend, who is also a model. Since we both have to stay in shape, we always bake with only healthy ingredients, which is how these truffles came to be. We wanted to make them simple and quick, and this is what we came up with. We are now obsessed with these and make them all of the time.
The preparation time is less than ten minutes and, honestly, the hardest part is waiting for the batter to freeze without eating it all;) These truffles are such a great snack for the summer because they are cold, and yet super nutritious. The recipe is high in iron and calcium, and if you make 12 truffles like I did, each one has 2.5 grams of protein, about 2 grams of fiber, and only 74 calories! They are seriously one of my all time favorite desserts and, personally, I think that they taste just like brownies!
