Ojas Truffles

Updated: Sep 6, 2023

A decadent snack that intersects nourishment, health, and balanced being.




The past month I have been writing and preparing a recipe e-book that will be apart of my first group Ayurvedic cleanse I will be leading this coming late October. For some of us, when we hear the word “cleanse” the thoughts of fasting, juicing, and detoxing may cross the mind.

However, when I think of an eastern approach to cleansing, the word nourishment comes to my mind.

In Ayurveda, cleansing is apart of a series of treatments called Panchakarma. If you are interested in learning more, HERE is a great article about it. One of the main purposes is to restore our Agni (ability to digest and assimilate) and remove metabolic waste called Ama. This waste is undigested food left in our gut, and can happen when we mindlessly eat, eat on the go, or eat food combinations that aren’t compatible to us. Ama is essentially toxic to our tissues, and over time this can build up and create havoc in the body, such as menstruation irregularities, skin issues, gut issues, gas and bloating after eating, sluggishness, the list goes on. The cleanse phase is meant to gently give our digestion a break so it has the chance to restore and remove internal waste through elimination and through specific body care rituals.


While this seems like the most important part of an Ayurvedic cleanse (it is), the biggest factor that is missed in many modern day cleanses is the Rejuvenation phase. This is the time when our tissues are readily available to take in nourishing foods and specific herbs to strengthen and build our immune system, musculoskeletal system, and reproductive system.

These Ojas truffles are one of the many delicious recipes that is in the Rejuvenation Phase (the last phase) of the cleanse I will lead. These truffles contain an Ayurvedic herbal jam called Chyavanprash. This is a decadent, superfood jam that deeply nourishes all of our body’s tissues, while supporting our vitality and immune function. They are ridiculously simple to make. They are also the perfect treat to mindfully indulge in that (bonus!) aid in the management of stress within life, work, and everything in between.



Ojas Truffles


What you'll need

  • 6 dates, pitted 1/2 cup pecans

  • 1 1/2 Tbsp chyawanprash

  • 1/4 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut flakes

  • 1 tsp rose powder

  • 1/4 tsp of ground cinnamon

  • Pinch of ground cardamum

  • Pinch of salt

  • optional : 2 dropper full of Bhava Wellness's Fertility Herbal Elixir


Directions


Add the pecans and dates into a food processor or high speed blender until broken down into a pulp. If using a blender, you may have to stop several times to scrape the sides down. Add the remaining ingredients and pulse or blend until the mixture forms a ball. You can also use your hands to mix everything together and shape it into a ball. Roll into 1 inch truffles and place in the freezer for 10-15 minutes to set. Take out to consume or store in the fridge until ready to eat.

Serves 6-8 truffles (depending on size of each truffle)

Notes: Use this recipe as a blueprint, and make them your own. Don’t have pecans? Use cashews, walnuts, and/or seeds. Try different spices and powdered herbs. I added 2 dropper fulls of Bhava Wellness’s Fertility Herbal Elixir in this recipe for added womb nourishment. Get creative with it, and enjoy!
