Strawberry Chocolate Hazelnut Smoothie

I do not drink smoothies very often, but this is more like a dessert, and that is how I treated this smoothie. It was a fruity, chocolatey treat. This recipe makes two servings and only contains 3 ingredients.

Combine all the ingredients into a high-speed blender. Blend until smooth and creamy.

Serve. Drink. Enjoy.

Healthier Chocolate Hazelnut Spread

This Chocolate Hazelnut Spread is divine and decadent. It is light and airy and irresistible. Most Chocolate Hazelnut Spreads use whole hazelnuts that need roasting, coconut oil, sugar and other ingredients I do not want to eat. Mine is much simpler (only 6 ingredients) and delicious.

I did not have hazelnuts when I made this, but I did have hazelnut flour/meal. It worked perfectly. WARNING: This is definitely an indulgence so do not go overboard. I  know it will be hard, but you can do it.

Uses for the Chocolate Hazelnut Spread are numerous: fruit dip, added to smoothies, crepe filling, spread onto waffles and to make truffles. Oh my, so many options.

  • 1 c hazelnut flour/meal
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2/3 c dark chocolate chips, melted
  • 3/4 c plant milk
  • 1/2 c Date Paste

Combine all the ingredients into a high-speed blender. Blend on the nut butter setting. You may need to stop and scrape the sides down. Just start over. This actually only took about 3 minutes to blend.

Taste for sweetness and adjust as needed.

Share. Eat. Enjoy.
