Dark chocolate is one of the best sources of antioxidants out there, with more free radical fighters than açai and blueberries. Specifically, cacao beans contain a type of antioxidant called flavanols, which protect the skin from sun damage. Of course, the catch is that chocolate usually comes with sugar, and sugar is bad news for your skin.

One of the best ways to enjoy the antioxidant boost of dark chocolate is to pair it with fresh fruit because the fruit adds sweetness without processed sugar. In this recipe, fresh raspberries are rolled into a rich vegan ganache made with bittersweet chocolate and coconut milk (hello, healthy fats!). Like dark chocolate, raspberries are rich in antioxidants like vitamin C, which is essential for healthy skin. Their high fiber content is like a natural detox for the digestive system, too.

  • 6 tablespoons canned full-fat coconut milk
  • 6 ounces bittersweet chocolate, finely chopped
  • 6 ounces fresh raspberries, patted dry
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Bring the coconut milk to a simmer in a small saucepan over medium heat. Remove from heat and stir in the chocolate with a rubber spatula.

Once the chocolate mixture is smooth, add the raspberries 6-8 at a time. Use the spatula to stir the chocolate and coat the berries, then use 2 forks to remove each raspberry, transferring from one fork to the other to let the excess ganache drip off. Place the raspberries on the parchment paper and repeat until all the raspberries are coated.

Refrigerate the truffles until firm, about an hour, then place the cocoa powder in a zip-top bag. Put the truffles in the bag with the cocoa powder and toss to coat. Remove the truffles from the bag, shaking off any excess cocoa powder.

Return the truffles to the refrigerator until ready to serve, up to 2 days.
