Bounty Superfood Truffles
Coconut and cacao has always been one of my favourite combinations! Either in a cake, pie, cookies or truffles they just compliment each other perfectly. Raw cacao preservers all the powerful antioxidants present in the cacao plant plus minerals like magnesium which is so important for muscle relaxation. It also contains tryptophan which is a precursor to phenylalanine, the feel good hormone that makes you feel happy and relaxed. Baobab is an excellent source of vitamin C that boosts immunity and is essential for collagen production of our skin and tissues. Moringa is not only high in plant protein but also in magnesium as well, calcium and iron to fight fatigue and tiredness and support strong and healthy bones and muscles. Let's not forget its high levels of vitamin A and E that will give you an amazing glow and fight free radicals. Delicious and super nutritious bounty goodness right here!
