Coconut truffles with dark chocolate
In this festive month, Termas de Chaves complete its Christmas dinner with three vegetarian and healthy festive recipes. Combining classic Christmas flavors, these are options that perfectly combine flavor and health. For starters, we present an Almond and Fruit Salad, then Wellington Vegetariano and, for dessert, Coconut Truffles with Dark Chocolate. Let's do it? After a delicious and nutritious Wellington, count on these truffles to sweeten the palate. With 70% dark chocolate, the candy provides an increase in metabolism, as it intensifies the burning of calories. Another classic benefit of cocoa is providing a feeling of well-being, because of the release of serotonin. Surprise yourself! Click here for the starter recipe and here for the main dish.
