Merci à Danielle d’Avout d’Auerstaedt, de la Société  Spirulinéa, Spécialiste de la spiruline solidaire de qualité, qui a proposé cette recette sur la  page Facebook du blog

Voici la recette en Français :


Juste pour rappel les atouts anti-âge : la spirulineLe chocolat. Le beurre est très riche en ALC (acides linoléiques conjugués)  qui ont des propriétés anti-oxydantes et anti-cancérigènes, et seraient bénéfiques contre les problèmes cardiaques ou l’obésité. Il est aussi riche en vitamines A, D et E.  Les graines de lin.


Truffes à la spiruline

Here is the recipe in English:

Ingredients: (for a good plate of truffles)

  • 125 g dark chocolate (if you like the taste choose it bitter or bitter-sweet for a maximum of flavonoids).
  • 50 g of butter from cow’s milk, cocoa butter or coconut oil (I used the first one)
  • 20 g of honey or any other equivalent with syrupy power
  • 5 to 15 g of spirulina (virtually undetectable at less than 10 g, except in case of poor rewet – beyond spirulina begins to contribute its  chlorophyll aromas to the final bouquet)
  • 2 tablespoons  Flaxseed – which give a sweet crunchy to truffles, and a healthy dose of omega-3.
  1. Moisten Spirulina: pour spirulina powder in several volumes of water and leave for a few minutes, mixing a little on the end.
  2. Prepare the ganache:  make melt butter and chocolate separately, then mix with all other ingredients with a whisk.
  3. Shape the  truffles: Once it is lukewarm, put this mixture in the refrigerator for an hour  to harden it, and form the balls·
  4. Finally roll the truffles in cocoa powder.

Anti-aging benefits: Spirulina. ChocolateButter:  is rich in CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) whichhave anti-oxidant and anti-carcinogenic properties, and would be beneficial against heart problems or obesity. It is also rich in vitamins A, D and E. Flaxseed.  And as written by Spirulinéa on its recipe: to the antioxidant flavonoids of the chocolate and cocoa, are added omega-3 from flaxseed, and the  multiple benefits of spirulina, including its own antioxidants and iron.
