These orange spiced truffles are another recipe I created when I first started the raw food diet. When I initially started going raw, the idea of making desserts overwhelmed me. I had a complete creative block trying to make them and had to gain an understanding of new ingredients and their measurements, which nuts make a good base or what flavors are good to combine, what makes something creamy etc. On top of that, all raw desserts seemed to have so many ingredients and steps to follow.
When I wanted something sweet I’d buy a raw snack at the store. But that got quite expensive and really threw my budget for a loop! So, I started browsing over raw dessert recipes trying to get the “new mentality” that comes with the raw food lifestyle. These truffles helped me realize raw desserts don’t have to be complicated and expensive to be delicious!
