Say “NO” to palm oil! Say “NO” to crazy amounts of sugar! And say “YES” to chocolate – hazelnut spread that contains healthy nutrients and can be modified according to your taste. Healthy homemade vegan Nutella time it is!
Let’s be honest – how many of you really check the ingredients of processed food in the supermarket? I must admit that before becoming vegan I didn’t. It’s not that I didn’t care about my health. I was simply too lazy to check and then to search for healthier alternatives or prepare them by myself. Why? First, because I thought that the final result of something self-made would not be as tasty as the original product. WRONG! And that it would be very time consuming to make it. WRONG AGAIN! I never actually thought how many bad things we put in our body without even realizing that! But it’s never too late to change things for good, so let’s start doing that by preparing a healthy alternative to Nutella!
I doubt that I need to tell you what Nutella is. It’s so popular that most of the people have tried it or even consume it on a daily basis. For sure it’s very popular here in Italy. And why shouldn’t it be, since the place of origin of Nutella is Italy! That’s right, I live in the Nutella-land! Even though I’m not sure that I should be happy about it… Since the original Nutella’s ingredients are not good for our health. So, instead of having a slice of bread covered with palm oil and crazy amount of sugar, try something better. Homemade chocolate and hazelnut spread that is full of fiber, vitamins and contains unsaturated or, so called, good fats.
Healthy homemade vegan Nutella in 3 ways
Most of the benefits that this healthy homemade vegan Nutella have come from its base, which is avocado. In the mix of avocado, roasted hazelnuts and chocolate/cacao powder you actually don’t feel the typical flavor of avocado. It just gives the silky smooth and creamy texture and nutrients. While the flavor is given by the roasted hazelnuts and chocolate/cacao powder. By the way, I definitely suggest you to buy fresh hazelnuts and roast them on your own. Freshly roasted hazelnuts give more intense flavor. But, of course, to save time feel free to use the ones that are already roasted. You can store this sweet spread in fridge for up to 5 days. In case you’re searching for a salty spread, check my creamy breakfast spread recipe.
In case you want to experiment, try to add some fruit to your chocolate – hazelnut spread. If you like the flavor of bitter dark chocolate, add some passion fruit to your healthy homemade vegan Nutella. The outcome will be a spread that is kinda sour, kinda bitter and kinda sweet at the same time.
On the opposite, if you have a sweet tooth for everything, add some banana to your healthy homemade vegan Nutella. You will get a naturally sweet chocolate – hazelnut spread that has a slight banana flavor.
I like all three types of this healthy homemade vegan Nutella. My baby bunny instead thinks differently. The only thing he would be willing to try of all these ingredients is banana. Unfortunately during the preparation process no one gave it to him. Poor bunny… at least he got a new friend that was ready to give him some avoc-cuddles!
If you care about your health and wellbeing, wait no longer and treat yourself with this healthy homemade vegan Nutella that is:
easy to make
full of vitamins
and simply yummy!
