Raw and healthy Raffaello bonbons

raw faello1Hey guys!

Today I have something sweet to share with you. I think everybody knows the famous Raffaello bonbons from Ferrero, yeah I think so. I adore them, but as you know they are not the healthiest sweets on the planet.

These bonbons I made is a recipe from a friend of mine, it is a raw vegan dessert with coconut and almonds. Delicious is an understatement! And guess what they’re ready in only 10 minutes?! 🙂

These coconut bonbons have the exact same taste as the originals!! Seriously!!! It’s amazing how some basic ingredients can make such a delicious, guilt-free, HEALTHY dessert.

Here is what you need for 15 bonbons:

  • 4 Tablespoons raw coconut butter [creamy – leave it at room temperature for a couple of minutes]
  • 1 cup raw coconut flakes + 4 more Tbsps for coating 
  • 2 Tbsps of raw cashews
  • 15 raw almonds [preferably peeled ones]
  • 2 Tbsp healthy sweetener of choice [I used honey, but you can use  maple syrup or what you like]
  • 1/2 Teasp vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. Put all ingredients in the blender, except almonds, and blend well until creamy.
  2. Put the 4 Tbsps of coconut flakes in a small dish.
  3. Make the bonbons. Use 1 tsp of cream per bonbon. Add one almond in each one of them and coat them in raw coconut flakes.
  4. Put in fridge or eat right away, if you’re impatient like me :))

So that’s it! Try this recipe and Let me know how they turned out!

Have a wonderful day! :*
