Today is a great day because I have a Healthy Vegan Chocolate Hazelnut “Nutella” Spread recipe for you to enjoy. Believe me…I’ve eaten my share of Nutella back in the day. And everyone else’s share as well. Eventually, I realized it was basically nothing but refined sugar and palm oil with soy lecithin and empty calories with no nutrition at all, so I just quit buying it. Make it instead!

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups organic raw hazelnuts

Preparation

  1. Put the raw hazelnuts in a glass 8 x 8 baking dish and roast at 400 degrees for approximately 10 minutes (they will burn much longer than that).
  2. Allow the roasted hazelnuts to cool completely.
  3. Using your fingers, peel off the skins of hazelnuts (you don't have to get them all perfect).
  4. Add all the ingredients into a Vitamix (adding the hazelnuts last) and blend until smooth and creamy. Use the tamper if necessary and stop periodically to check and see if you need to add a tablespoon or more of almond milk so it will be smooth and creamy.
  5. Store in an air-tight glass container.
  6. Enjoy!
