HEALTHY CHOCOLATE-HAZELNUT SPREAD

 

I think Nutella was a staple in every Italian child’s home and mine was no different.  I still remember sitting in front of the television and enjoying it right out of the jar.  Yes, you could say I was completely addicted to it.  I really haven’t had it since I was a kid, but my husband sometimes sneaks a jar into the house.

Did you know that Nutella is 55% sugar and only 14% hazelnuts?  It contains skim milk powder which means … you guessed it, it is not vegan.

I thought it was time to create a healthier version of this wonderful chocolate-hazelnut spread that everyone seems to love!  You can drizzle it over pancakes, waffles, granola, cereal or simply spread it on toast.  This recipe is so easy to whip up you won’t need to be reaching for the store bought version.

 

 

Place all ingredients in mini blender.

Only 5 ingredients!

Blend until smooth.  You can adjust the consistency by adding more milk if you like.

Store in airtight glass container or jar in fridge.

Good for 2 weeks.
