Makes 1 truffle
The creamy subtlety of avocado, the sweetness of mango, a touch of citrus, and a nutty crunchy coat make these cute little truffles a tasty and colorful treat with a surprise inside. Although they look elaborate, they’re surprisingly easy and quick to prepare.
1 hass avocado
1/4 cup diced mango
1/4 cup cilantro, coarsely chopped
1/2 lime, juiced
1 tablespoon dried pepper flakes
1/8 cup pistachios
1/8 cup pepitas
1/8 cup peanuts
1/8 cup almonds
1/8 cup black or white sesame seeds
1/8 cup sunflower seeds
In a mortar and pestle or a food processor, grind the sunflower seeds, almonds, peanuts, pistachios and pepitas. Add the dried pepper flakes and sesame seeds. Set aside.
Cut the avocado in half and take out the pit. Gently scoop out some of the flesh, leaving a good amount intact, so that the avocado holds its shape when you take off the skin.
Mash the scooped avocado flesh, adding half of the squeezed lime juice. Evenly distribute the mashed mass back into the two avocado halves.
Mix the chopped cilantro, diced mango, the rest of the lime juice and half of the sesame seeds. Put the mixture into the two avocado halves.
Carefully assemble them back together and even more carefully, peel off the skin.
Finally, bathe the avocado in the reserved ground coating. Serve and eat immediately.
