How cute are these raw and vegan treats by Nakd? Easy to make and the perfect healthy treat to serve at your Wimbledon final party – celebrate the Hip & Healthy way with these tennis-ball inspired truffles featuring a Nakd Cocoa Delight centre and a pistachio coating.


Serves: 8

Preparation time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 Nakd Cocoa Delight bars
  • 2 tbsp agave syrup
  • 100g raw pistachios, unshelled
  • A pinch of ground turmeric

Hip & Healthy icing

  • 3/4 cup raw cashews
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tablespoons date syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 2-4 tablespoons water, as needed for blending

 Method

  1. Cut the Nakd bars into halves and roll each half into a ball. Rinse your hands with cold water before you begin to make it easier. Leave the balls in the fridge whilst you prepare the coating.
  2. In a food processor or coffee grinder, grind the pistachios and turmeric together until you get a fine green-yellow powder. You may need to add more turmeric to achieve the classic Tennis ball colour but don’t worry – you won’t be able to taste the turmeric!
  3. Add the agave to a small bowl and dip the Nakd bar balls into the agave to cover before dipping into the pistachio powder, rolling it around to fully coat.
  4. Place on a plate in the fridge to fully set.
  5. Now it’s time to make the icing! Combine ingredients in a high-powered blender, and blend until smooth and creamy, adding water as necessary to facilitate blending.
  6. Set icing in the fridge for about an hour before transferring to an icing bag.
  7. Bring your tennis truffles to life by creating the tennis ball lines as shown in the image.

These truffles keep for 3 days in the fridge.
