Delicious and Healthy Turmeric and Cacao Truffles: The Perfect Guilt-Free Treat!


Take a deep breath and let your senses transport you to the tropical lands of India where turmeric is as golden as the sun, and to the lush landscapes of Central and South America where cacao trees bear fruits laden with precious seeds. This is an epicurean journey we’re embarking on, creating Turmeric and Cacao Truffles to enchant your palate and nourish your health. Heshi, meaning ‘smile’ in my grandmother’s dialect, was the name she gave to these truffles – her secret weapon in convincing us all to enjoy the vibrant kick of turmeric.

Ingredients List

Smiles abound as you gather these precious elements to create your tasty truffles:

  • 1 cup of raw cacao powder
  • 1 cup of melted organic coconut oil
  • ¼ cup of organic maple syrup
  • A wink of sea salt (1/8 teaspoon)
  • 2 tablespoons of ground turmeric
  • 1 tablespoon of ground ginger
  • ½ cup of finely chopped walnuts or almonds
  • Touch of vanilla extract (½ teaspoon)


  1. Start the truffle treks by combining the cacao powder, melted coconut oil, and maple syrup in a medium-sized bowl. Stir until all ingredients are well blended. Watch the cacao and turmeric meld together, like long-lost friends meeting at a cafe.
  2. Add in the turmeric, ginger, sea salt, and vanilla extract to the liquid gold you’ve just created. Stir again to capture the flavors in every square inch.
  3. In the sea of cacao and turmeric, drop in your finely chopped nuts. They provide the anchor, the contrast, the delightful crunch in our truffle narrative.
  4. Now, time to get your hands dirty. Roll the mixture into bite-sized balls, lay them on a plate lined with parchment paper.
  5. Refrigerate the truffles for at least an hour or until firm.

Cooking Time & Servings

No heat, no problem! These truffles only take around 15 minutes to prepare and an hour to charge in your refrigerator. This recipe yields about 20 smile-inspiring truffles.

Nutritional Information

When taste whirls in harmony with health, that’s when you know you’ve got a keeper recipe. Each Turmeric and Cacao Truffle you roll out comes packed with essential nutrients – proteins, healthy fats, fiber, and of course, the star of the show, turmeric.

Tips and Tricks

Think your truffles need a little extra je ne sais quoi? Spice them up using a pinch of sea salt on each before chilling. Want them dairy-free? Substitute coconut oil with extra virgin olive oil. For nut allergies, rolled oats can provide a similar texture and won’t dampen the smile these truffles bring!
