A healthy alternative to Nutella
I’ve really liked Nutella since I discovered it in middle school. However, when I became more health conscious in high school, I realized that I probably shouldn’t be putting so much processed sugars into my body every morning alongside a piece of bread.
A few years ago, my mom got a Vitamix (high performance blender) and started experimenting. Turns out it’s perfect for making nut spreads, including a chocolate hazelnut spread that tastes fantastic and has less than a quarter of the sugar that Nutella does (5g per 2 tbsp serving vs 21g).
I’m headed off to Berkeley tomorrow for my last year of college and wanted to bring some with me. Thought I’d also share the process for making it!
