Is red velvet more of a Christmas thing or Valentine’s Day thing? I can’t decide, but I do know that these White Chocolate Red Velvet Protein truffles are perfect anytime a red velvet craving strikes! They’ve got rich red velvet flavor with just a hint of cocoa, and a melt-in-your-mouth white chocolate coating.
Scrub and peel one small beet. Microwave (covered) for 6-8 minutes with a splash of water.
Blend beet, almond milk, almond butter, and extracts until smooth.
Pour blended mixture into a small bowl and add protein powder, sweetener, and salt (optional); mix until a soft dough is formed.
Using rounded tablespoons, roll into balls and place in the freezer for 15-20 minutes.
Meanwhile, melt white chocolate with coconut oil in the microwave by 15-20 second intervals, stirring each time until smooth.
Using a spoon, roll each chilled ball in melted chocolate.
Spoon each truffle onto a plate or sheet lined with parchment/wax paper and let the chocolate set at room temperature.
Enjoy at room temperature or store in the fridge up to one week.
