    Chocolate Truffles with fresh Blueberries and Greek Yoghurt

    Chocolate Truffles with fresh Blueberries and Greek Yoghurt – Τρούφες Σοκολάτας με μύρτιλα και γιαούρτι

    Do you fancy chocolate but you’re on a diet; Craving for chocolate but you want to avoid the cream, evaporated milk, or butter that it may contain? I have the solution! Chocolate truffles with yogurt and fresh blueberries. Made in no time, but unfortunately eaten in no time, as well… trust me!

    I decided to try this recipe with fresh blueberries, mainly because it is one of my favorite fruits and secondly because it is now in season. I cannot describe the joy I get every year at this time when I dig some fresh blueberries in a store waiting for me. Luckily this year I found some in the nearest supermarket, without much trouble and searching. But I would like to try this recipe with fresh cherries, as well; which I love equally. I’ll do it soon and let you know the outcome. For the beneficial properties of the blueberries, we talked recently; but dark chocolate offers you many other antioxidants.

    Preparation time: 40 minutes (including waiting time)

    Servings: 18 to 20 pieces (size of teaspoon)

    Ingredients:

    • ½ cup chocolate chips, or 100 g. dark chocolate, chopped

    • ¼ cup strained yogurt, 2% fat

    • 30 g. fresh blueberries, chopped

    • 1 tbsp stevia (if you prefer a less sweet dessert, you skip it)

    • 3 tsp. cocoa powder

    Instructions:

    1. Prepare a dish in a bain marie and melt the chocolate and stevia over low heat. Allow to cool for about 7-8 minutes.
    2. Add the yogurt and blueberries and stir gently. Put the mixture in the fridge for half an hour, or until firmed.
    3. Add the cocoa powder in a small bowl. Prepare a pan with a nonstick paper where you will put your truffles.
    4. Remove the mixture from the refrigerator and, if you do not have the special tool shown in the photo, take a little of the mixture with a teaspoon, shape it into a little ball and roll it over the cocoa powder.
    5. Repeat the same with the remaining mixture. Place the truffles in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

    The special tool I use for making truffles makes small-bites ones. If you do not have one, use a teaspoon; possibly yours will be slightly larger and therefore ….less. So consider preparing a double dose! Probably the single dose will not be enough for you. It is so delicious!

    If you try the recipe with another fresh fruit in season I will be glad to know the result. So I’ am waiting ….
