ORANGE, CACAO & REISHI TRUFFLES



Contributor: Kelly Mason
Plant-Based Chef Kelly Mason has created delicious truffles, adding Sun Potion Reishi mushroom for the benefit of supporting a state of calm and stress relief. With the option to add CBD, we invite you to try this recipe and experience the deliciousness yourself!
I absolutely adore the combination of Reishi and Cacao... with a close second being the combination of Cacao and orange and a close third, the combination of orange and chamomile - So for me, these truffles are one of my ultimate calming & oh so sweet creations! 
 
I became obsessed earlier this year with making plant based truffles and since have been playing around with various flavor profiles and combinations..
 
The recipe includes a CBD element which is optional in this sweet treat to further enhance the medicinal benefits of this already calming dessert. 
 
Using Sun Potion organic Reishi powder these truffles are inspired by the complexity and everlasting layering of complimentary flavoring in every single bite experience.
 
I cant wait to share this delicate, gently calming dessert with you!
