  • 142g (5oz) cream cheese (½ cup plus 2 tbsp), softened

  • ¼ cup Swerve confectioners’-style sweetener

  • 2 tbsp maca powder

  • 1 tsp unsweetened cashew milk

  • Seeds scraped from 1 vanilla bean (about 8 inches long), or 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • ¼ cup heavy cream

  • 2 tbsp Swerve confectioners’- style sweetener

  • 25g (1oz) unsweetened chocolate, finely chopped

  • Seeds scraped from 1 vanilla bean (about 8 inches long), or 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • In a mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, sweetener, maca powder, cashew milk, and vanilla extract. Beat with a hand mixer until smooth. Adjust the sweetness to your liking, adding more sweetener or maca powder if necessary. Cover and place in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours or overnight.
  • Scoop out 1-inch balls of the mixture with a mini ice cream scooper or spoon. Place the balls on a platter to serve. Refrigerate the platter while you make the chocolate drizzle.
  • To make the drizzle, in a double boiler or a heat-safe bowl set over a pan of simmering water, combine the cream, sweetener, and chopped chocolate. Heat on low, stirring constantly, until the chocolate is completely melted. Remove from the heat and add the vanilla extract. Allow the drizzle to cool for 8 minutes in the refrigerator, or until thickened but still slightly warm; if it hardens too much, return it to the double boiler and gently reheat.
  • Remove the truffles from the refrigerator and drizzle the chocolate over each one with a spoon. Chill before serving.
  • Refrigerate leftovers in an airtight container for up to 4 days. Freezing is not advised.
