Chocolate Hazelnut Smoothie

Chocolate works miracles. It’s comforting. It’s tasty. It’s euphoric. It makes friends. Chocolate hazelnut spread is the goddess of chocolate and makes this smoothie pure bliss!

Chocolate works miracles. That’s a fact. It’s comforting. It’s tasty. It puts me in a good mood. It makes friends. A chocolate hazelnut spread is the goddess of chocolate–it’s the hazelnut that does the trick. Oh, and the sugar. And cocoa. And soy. Mix it all together and it’s bliss. I spread it on toast, in hot chocolate (remember my Deluxe Nutella Hot Chocolate?), and now in a smoothie!

I was having this chocolate craving this morning. Every morning I make a smoothie for breakfast–it’s just a thing I do. I’m a creature of habit. Once I find something that’s good, it’s hard to change. But alas, I actually diverted from my Protein Berry Smoothie to make this one.

I will admit that as I was putting all the ingredients in the blender, I was dipping my finger in the chocolate hazelnut spread for a taste. Okay, I will fess up that I dipped my finger several times. You can’t just stop with one lick!

If you want to make your smoothie more heavenly, top it with shaved chocolate or coconut whipping cream.

Comments

  1. The drink looks hypoglycemic. Be careful not to put to much Nutella in it, you might actually taste it.

  2. How can I get the recipe for Nutella hot chocolate? THX.
