No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake Truffles Bites (Vegan & Gluten Free)
These no bake vegan & paleo strawberry cheesecake truffle bites are making my world go round right now! They are quite possibly my new favorite snack/dessert.
Every Valentine’s Day I crave truffles – they go hand-in-hand so perfectly with the holiday. Prior to having a husband I used to buy myself a small box of Godiva dark chocolate truffles and some roses. I always felt that just because I was single didn’t mean I shouldn’t indulge myself in roses and truffles. Ladies you should definitely indulge yourself a bit on Valentine’s Day if you don’t have a significant other.
I still love truffles just as much as I used to, but I love making my own so I know that all of the ingredients are clean and healthy. Most store-bought truffles contain ingredients such as soy lecithin (gross) and refined oils and sugar. My homemade strawberry cheesecake truffles contain no refined sugar (they are sweetened with dates) and are made with all wholesome, real ingredients. They’re also completely raw, vegan, paleo, gluten-free and dairy-free.
This year I chose to make a big batch of my favorite strawberry cheesecake truffle bites because they are a pretty light pink color and isn’t that just so quintessential ‘Valentine’s Day’?! They literally taste like heavenly strawberry cheesecake! I love to snack on these throughout the day and also enjoy them for dessert.
These strawberry cheesecake truffles are easy to make as they do not require any baking. They only contain 8 ingredients that are easy to find. You need a food processor to make these, so I recommend purchasing one. It’s so worth the investment because I use it all of the time! If you’re looking for a simple, inexpensive food processor I like this one.You must make these no bake vegan strawberry cheesecake truffle bites for a healthy Valentine's Day Treat!Click To Tweet

Can you substitute something else for the dates. I’m allergic to dates 🙁
Ahh I’m sorry to hear you’re allergic to dates! You can try 1 cup of raisins – that should work well (but have not tested it). Alternatively, you can also try a few tbsp of maple syrup or honey. I am not sure the amount that would work, but start with 2 tbsp and increase from there as needed for texture and sweetness.
