  • cup sweet potato puree chilled (1 large sweet potato)
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 6 dates Medjool, pitted and soaked in warm water for 20 min.
  • 3 Tbsp cacao powder
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup desiccated coconut divided


  • Mix sweet potato puree with dates puree and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl.
  • Then add almond meal, cacao powder, and ½ cup of desiccated coconut.
  • Stir until combined. The result will be a sticky mixture, but you’ll be able to shape the truffles. They will get firmer once chilled.
  • Shape the truffles into 1” round balls. Should make 22-25.
  • Coat the truffles with the remaining desiccated coconut.
  • Place the truffles in the fridge for an hour before serving. Enjoy these fantastic truffles!


Dates puree: After pitting the dates, soak them in warm water for 20 minutes. Once dates are soft, drain the water (as much as possible) and puree them with a hand blender.
Potato puree: to avoid excess liquid, the best is to bake the sweet potatoes with skin, covered foil paper for 30-40 minutes or until tender. Then pull the pulp out and mash it. Another option is to cook it in a steamer, but never boil it as it is too watery.
Keep leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 7 days.
Shredded coconut replacement: Sometimes, desiccated coconut is not easy to find in the US, so I’ve re-tested this recipe using shredded coconut, and the result was the same. The only difference is that as shredded coconut is not as finely grated, I had to blend the shredded coconut strips to achieve a finely grated mixture. Then, just place the coconut into a blender and pulse a few times.
