5-Ingredient Raw Chocolate Orange Truffles (With Video)


Helen Schofield


  • 1 orange, juiced and zested
  • 6 ounces/170 grams (1½ cups) pitted dates
  • 5.5 ounces/155 grams (1¼ cups) raw cashew nuts
  • 2.5 ounces/70 grams (½ cup) raisins or sultanas (I used raisins)
  • 1 ounce/25 grams (4 tablespoons) raw cacao powder


  1. Put the dates in a small bowl and pour half of the orange juice over them. Put aside for a moment.
  2. Put the cashews and the rest of the orange juice in your food processor and process until they are all mashed up and clump together in a ball (this took quite a while – at least 2 or 3 minutes).
  3. Tip the cashew and orange mixture into a bowl. Then tip the dates/orange juice and sultanas into the food processor and process until they too are all mashed up and form a sticky ball (this probably won’t take as long as the cashews).
  4. Add the mashed up dates/sultanas to the cashew/orange mixture in the bowl, then add the cacao and orange zest and mash everything together well until it resembles a thick chocolate cake batter.
  5. Take teaspoons of mixture and roll into truffles. Finally, roll in raw cacao powder.


  • Try storing the truffles in the freezer – they’re delicious that way!
