Ultra decadent Chocolate Avocado Pudding Truffles with the most heavenly texture and cruncy pistachio coconut coating. Vegan, paleo, and easy!

Sometimes you whip up a batch of chocolate ball things on a whim on a wednesday with a friend inspired by your favorite coffee shop and it turns out too good not to share. This was one of those times. Truffles just happened.

So I may have used black friday as an excuse to finally make the leap and upgrade my camera. And while the “business expense” funds were flowing I may have gotten a new macro lens too.

Rest in peace T5i, it’s been real.

Hello EOS R, I am loving you already.

With so many fun new photography toys, I really wanted to try shooting a slightly different style of video with more closeups and handheld shots. And it just so happens my friend Cathryn recently got a new camera too, so last week we transformed my living room into a video studio and shot a video of these truffles. The video is nowhere near perfect, but was really fun to shoot and edit (feedback welcomed!)

The truffles themselves however – perfect in the most decadent delicious way ♡

The idea for an avocado truffle came from one of my favorite local coffee shops here in St Pete. They sell exclusively gluten-free goodies, these heavenly little avocado balls among them. I try not to order one every time I go because $3 for two bites adds up, but it’s hard to resist.

Solution: make our own!

We did tweak the ingredients a bit:

  • included SunButter for an extra lush texture
  • reduced the sweetness for a darker chocolate flavor
  • added coffee because chocolate + coffee forever
  • and coated them in pistachios instead of almonds (instantly qualify as Christmas-y)

The texture of these Chocolate Avocado Pudding Truffles is similar to a ganache truffle. They hold their shape in the fridge, but when you bite in it’s instantly DREAMY. Like the spoon-free version of avocado chocolate pudding in a bite-sized ball.

They might not be a gingerbread house with snowy frosting and candy cane sprinkles and a cookie family living inside. But they might be better…
