An avocado in a truffle?
Fun ‘ta pop on into your mouth.
Ready in a jiffy.
And, o ya. They taste really, really good.
Not to mention, they’re healthy.
Healthy fats, a nice dose of protein and a bit of natural sweetness from orange zest, coconut flakes, cocoa powder and brown rice syrup.
After all, it is Friday… and the June sunshine is right around the corner, hopefully.
So why not treat yourself?
Indulge in one of these lil’ babies.
The best part? Green Tea.
Well, it’s a lil’ caffeine boost for ya and tastes pretty darn good, too.
What do ya think?
