These low-carb chocolate truffles are perfect for Valentine's Day or Mother's Day. Fruity and decadent, these truffles will make your loved one feel special!
The pretty pink color can be easily achieved with freeze-dried fruit powder, dragonfruit powder or beetroot powder — no food dyes needed. They are coated in keto-approved 90% dark chocolate mixed with coconut oil.
Want to make them even prettier? You can even add a sprinkle of shredded coconut, flaked almonds or crushed freeze-dried raspberries. Enjoy!
- Natural extracts for flavor. Instead of raspberry extract you can use sugar-free and PG free cherry extract or strawberry extract instead. Use 1 to 3 teaspoons per recipe. The amount will depend on the extract.
- Naturally pink truffles. To get the beautiful pink or red effect without any food dyes you can use any freeze-dried berry powder (raspberry for pink, strawberry for pale red or blueberry for purple). Alternatively you can use beetroot powder or dragon fruit powder (used in this recipe for the most vibrant pink).
- Low-carb sweetener. Instead of Allulose syrup you can use any powdered low-carb sweetener (Erythritol, Swerve or Allulose) or stevia drops. Go easy on the stevia as too much would make the truffles taste bitter.
- Dark chocolate coating. Instead of 90% dark chocolate you can use 85% or even unsweetened 100% dark chocolate. If you prefer your chocolate mild, use dark or milk sugar-free chocolate sweetened with stevia, Erythritol or Allulose. Finally, you can even make your own chocolate.
- Room temperature stable truffles. If you want the truffles to last for longer outside the fridge (maybe pack in a git box), use cacao butter instead of coconut oil (melts at room temperature) in the chocolate coating. Truffles made this way will last a few hours outside the fridge, as long as they are well coated, but should be refrigerated as soon as possible.

Ingredients (makes 12 truffles)
- Prepare all the ingredients for the filling. Melt the coconut oil.
- In a bowl, mix the shredded coconut, collagen, berry powder, coconut cream, melted coconut oil, Allulose syrup and raspberry extract. Using a spatula, mix to combine. Place in the fridge to set for 30 minutes.
Note: Instead of raspberry extract you can use cherry extract or strawberry extract instead. Use 1 to 3 teaspoons - this will depend on the extract. For more options for substitutions, check the recipe tips above.
- After about 30 minutes, use a cookie dough scoop or wet your hands to create 12 medium truffles (about 20 g/ 0.7 oz each). Place in the freezer for at least 30 minutes or up to an hour.
- Meanwhile, melt the dark chocolate and coconut oil (or cacao butter) in a double boiler or a glass bowl on top of a small saucepan filled with a cup of water over a medium heat. Once completely melted, remove from the heat and set aside to cool down. The chocolate should not be hot when you use it for coating.
- Remove the truffles from the freezer. To cover them in chocolate, use a skewer or a fork. Pick up one truffle at a time and hold over the bowl of melted chocolate. Spoon the chocolate over the truffle until well-coated.
- Keep turning until the chocolate is solidified. If you have any leftover chocolate, drizzle it over the truffles. Remove the skewers and cover the hole with a small amount of chocolate.
- Place each of the coated truffles on a tray lined with greaseproof paper and place in the fridge for at least 15 minutes before serving.
- Keep refrigerated. If you want the truffles to last for longer outside the fridge (maybe pack in a git box), use cacao butter instead of coconut oil (melts at room temperature) in the chocolate coating.
- Store in the fridge for up to a week or freeze for up to 3 months.
