Vegan Chocolate Matcha Truffles
Light and creamy, with a delicately refreshing green tea flavour, these vegan chocolate matcha truffles make for a perfect gift... or a decadent treat for yourself!
raw cocoa butter
vanilla bean paste
(or use ½ teaspoon vanilla extract)
To roll the truffles in
grated vegan chocolate
Bring a pan of water to a boil, add the cashews, and simmer for 15 minutes.
While the cashews are softening, put the cocoa butter into a heatproof bowl, and place on top of the cashew pan. Remove as soon as the cocoa butter has melted, and set aside.
Remove 3 tablespoon of the simmering water, and set aside. Drain and rinse the cashews under cold water. Add to a food processor, along with the reserved water, then process to a smooth paste.
Add the melted cocoa butter, agave nectar, matcha powder, vanilla, and sea salt. Pulse a few times, until everything is well-mixed.
Taste, and if desired, add a dash more matcha.
Place the truffle mixture in the 'fridge for a couple of hours to firm up.
Once firm enough to handle, divide into 20 pieces, and roll into balls.
Put the cocoa powder and grated chocolate into a couple of plastic bags, add the truffles, and give the bags a shake to make sure the truffles are all coated.
Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to two weeks.
