Maca Chocolate Truffles

These truffles are incredibly rich and perfect when that chocolate craving comes around! If you choose sugar-free chocolate, they will also be sugar-free and full of healthy fats and proteins. And if maca isn't your thing, try other adaptogens such as ashwagandha for adrenal support!


  • 6-7 ounces of 70%+ dark organic chocolate

  • ¾ cup full fat coconut milk

  • 2 teaspoons maca powder

  • 2 scoops Vital Proteins Collagen powder

  • (optional) Cacao powder or hemp seeds for coating


  1. Heat the coconut milk in a small saucepan over medium heat.

  2. In a heat-proof bowl, break the chocolate into pieces.

  3. Pour the hot coconut milk over the chocolate and whisk until well-combined.

  4. Add the maca and collagen and mix well.

  5. Cover and place into the refrigerator for 3 hours. Place a spoon into the fridge as well to use during the next step.

  6. Remove from the refrigerator, and using a cold spoon and your hands, form 1” balls. Place on a parchment-lined cookie sheet and place into the refrigerator for 30-60 minutes to set.

  7. (Optional) Roll the balls in cacao powder or hemp seeds.

  8. Store the truffles in the refrigerator, and enjoy!
