These low carb, protein-packed, creamy mint avocado cheesecake truffles are covered in chocolate! They’re a healthy, gluten free Christmas treat for only 90 calories!
I scream, you scream, we all scream for…
REALLY MINI FOOD.
And you thought I was going to say “ice cream.” TRICK’D YA!
Pretty sure you’ll get over the possible “I’ve-been-tricked” anger that is swirling around in your cheesecake-loving noggins in about 3 seconds.
Because they teeny-tiny little bites of creamy-dreamy, superfresh mint avocado cheesecake that are gettin’ a crispy-crunchy rich chocolate HUG are the KEY to getting ANYONE to forget any possible wrong-doings that you even done to them in their lives.
Big claims for such tiny little bites of Christmas-time food heaven.
BUT, they OWN THEM.
I feel like you and I are on the same page about a LOT of things that we put in our mouths. One of the major points that we agree on is the <3 <3 <3 of mini food. Mostly because we really like eating and mini foods = MORE FOOD FOR YOU.
But, also because mini food is, uhhh, SO CUTE RIGHT NOW.
B-b-butttt what about REALLY mini food? These aren’t pint-sized in the sense of those mini pumpkin vegan cheesecakes. These are BITE SIZED.
Like, one in your hungry mouth. All at O-N-C-E.
Pro tip: I do recommend chewing. Just sayin’.
Now I can take no blame for any general bad things that happen if you think that “really mini” means “no-need-to-chew” and you try to inhale 6 bites back to back, NO STOPPING.[clickToTweet tweet=”Low carb, creamy, protein packed Mint Avocado Truffles for only 90 calories!

Real life talk: I would NOT BLAME YOU. Just felt a warning was in order.
On the topic (that we accidentally got off-topic from) of things that we super agree on right now: desserts that are both protein packed (HOLLA to my gluten free snickerdoodle Greek yogurt cheesecakes!) AND provide a super-stealthy ninja pop of heart-healthiness. This is why you’re going to be RLY RLY excited when your eyeballs peep the mega dose of the lean-mean-muscle-building machine that is Greek yogurt and the nutritious powerhouse that is avocado in the ingredient list.
You know how much I love avocado in desserts. Remember the healthy chocolate chip cookies? BLISS.
Can we also just take a moment to image Greek yogurt and avocado together? It’s like CREAMY x 2 plus EXTRA SUPER CREAMY = crushin’ so hard on the ridiculously velvety smooth texture that is oozing out of these bites of avocado cheesecake BLISS.
P.s Like last months mint chocolate cashew cream no bake bars, these bites are naturally green from the avocado lovin’. Have you ever opened a container of mint chocolate chip ice-cream, only to discover it was WHITE?
Exactly. You don’t trust it.
You may actually remember this cheesecake from last year’s mint gluten free cheesecake with avocado brownie bottom and the idea of avocado truffles from the healthy avocado chocolate truffles. This is like that. Without the brownie.
And COVERED in chocolate.
Because dunking things in chocolate >>>>>>> just putting a little bit on the bottom.
Also, because I recently learned how to make chocolate covered cheesecake bites, and considering mint and chocolate is basically the most magical combination of Christmas food to ever happen to this planet we call earth, well….I WENT THERE with this avocado cheesecake recipe.
Like 10 times. As in I have A LOT of cheesecake bliss-balls rolling around in my fridge right now for whenever the craving hits. P.s can we rename them cheesecake bliss balls please?
And, because I am a real, hungry person who exists in the real world, that happens A LOT.
I’m strongly urging you to do what I say AND what I do and follow suit by doubling (read: quadrupling) your batch of smooth-n’-creamy bites of yum this Christmas season. Aaaand, don’t plan on givin’ A-N-Y away.
You know that saying “it’s better to give than to receive”
That doesn’t apply here.
