Hey there – day 2 of Health Week! Today I will be posting about homemade Nutella. Quite arguably the internet’s favorite food, Nutella is a yummy mixture of hazelnut with skim milk and cocoa.
However, Nutella is not good for you (Sorry!). I could explain why to you in words, but as always, actions speak louder. Here is a video about just what is in that yummy snack.
Now that you have watched that… Lets get working on our own Nutella!! This recipe is adapted from Tales of a Kitchen.
1 1/2 cups raw hazelnuts
7 Tablespoons of cacao or carob powder
8 Medjool dates
2/3 cups of Almond Milk (You could use yesterdays recipe for almond milk! Link: https://homeschoolapalooza.wordpress.com/2014/09/22/healthy-living-almond-milk-and-cookies/), or water.
Pinch of sea salt
2 Tablespoons coconut oil
2/3 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 drop of dōTERRA essential oil, cinnamon (Use a toothpick to get half a drop)
1. Add Hazelnuts to blender and mix until a sticky dough forms. Before it becomes a butter!
2. Put Cinnamon dōTERRA essential oil into mixture.
3. Add all the rest of the ingredients until it becomes a smooth butter.
Then eat that yummy, do it yourself, nutella!
