Notella Рnutty, chocolate-y deliciousness 

I heard this weekend that Nutella contains more sugar in it than hazelnuts. 

I’m a big fan of substituting bad things with good things and this weekend I wanted to do a clean eating version of Nutella – for my own sake as well as my sons! I miss it!! 

This recipe made a good jam jar size portion that will keep well in the fridge. 

I’m having it for my 10am snack today slathered on a banana and I also added it to some ‘n-ice’ cream, but we’ll come to that later. 

 
Ingredients 

  • 200g hazelnuts 
  • 50-70ml almond milk or other non-dairy milk
  • 1tsp coconut oil
  • 60g honey
  • 40g of cacao or cocoa powder
  • A small pinch of salt 

Roast the hazelnuts in an oven at 180 for ten minutes. 

Let them cool a little. 

Place in a good strong blender with all the other ingredients and blitz for 5-10 minutes until you have a consistency you are happy with. It may not be as smooth as shop bought but it will be delicious on toast (gluten-free) and will give you more health benefits than its shop bought counterpart. 

‘N-ice cream’ is where you blitz frozen slices of banana with whatever flavour you like (peanut butter, notella, clean jam) and then re-freeze until solid. It’s a fantastic alternative to regular sugary ice cream and perfect to cool down on these hot summery days.
