After a few months in the cruise phase of the Dukan diet (too many factors made the strict protein/vegetable phase nearly impossible) I am back to the initial diet full force, and with great results so far.
The Dukan diet is not an easy adventure to undertake, but after losing nearly 30 lbs since March, I can attest that the hard work is rewarded two fold.
Since the future reward isn’t always enough to keep away the chocolate cravings however, luckily you can make Dukan approved truffles to enjoy when that late night urge kicks in…
Dukan Chocolate Truffles
Adapted from the Dukan Recipe Book ~ Makes approx. 8 truffles
- 4 tsp of low fat cocoa powder, and extra to roll the truffles in
- 1 tbsp of fat free fromage frais (or thick yogurt)
- 5 tbsp of powdered skim milk
- 2 egg yolks
- 5 drops of vanilla flavoring
- 3 tsp of sweetener (or to taste)*
Mix everything together. Add extra powdered skim milk if necessary until the paste reaches a firm consistency. Put aside in the fridge for a few hours until mixture is hard enough to scoop and roll into small balls. Before serving, roll the balls in cocoa powder.
*When sweetener is concerned, as well as nearly any Dukan recipe, I always taste, taste, taste. Low-fat recipes are hard to calculate precisely, and in order to enjoy your dessert once it’s finished, you should be sure you enjoy the batter! So please – take a spoon and taste, then adjust flavors and ingredients (slightly) at your desire.
Bon appetite luvs – you look thinner already!
