Super Easy Raw Cacao Truffles and…Sleep

  • If you want to feel great – get enough sleep!
  • If you want lose weight or maintain your weight – get enough sleep!
  • If you want to look fabulous – get enough sleep!

Yup, I totally know that and teach that. But last week, I had a couple of sleepless nights. I did all my super sleep tapes and relaxations but there was no sleep to be had. Of course the next day I was tired. I needed a pick me up. I don’t drink coffee so that wasn’t an option. So, I whipped these up… (read to the end of the blog to find out if it worked!):

Super Easy Raw Cacao Truffles

Put all ingredients in food processor and blend until thoroughly mixed. Form into balls and enjoy!

  • 3 Pitted Dates
  • 1 Tablespoon Raw Coconut Butter
  • 1 Tablespoon Raw Cacao Powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Bee Pollen (optional -it does impart a strong honey flavor,  but I wanted the superfood energy hit that bee pollen gives me)
Form into balls or any shape you like.
They’d be delicious rolled in raw coconut flakes. 

After wizzing them up the truffle mix is crumbly, but form a ball and they'll hold together.

The truffles did their pick-me-up job, in fact a little too well! These little raw truffles pack a cacao caffeine punch.  I’m very sensitive to caffeine anyway, but these tasty morsels kept me awake all day and well into the next night!
So, what’s a gal to do when, yet again, she hasn’t slept well (besides the obvious – a nap!)?  I reached for a much gentler stimulant –  my wonderful Goji Berry Tea. I slept very well the next night.
