Nutella Milk Shake


If you haven’t noticed already, I love chocolate. Good news is, chocolate treats can be made healthy with the help of cacao.Cacao is the purest form of chocolate you can consume, which means it is raw and much less processed than cocoa powder or chocolate bars. Cacao is thought to be the highest source of antioxidants of all foods and the highest source of magnesium of all foods. It is in fact different from the traditional cocoa that you probably grew up buying at the store in the form of cocoa powder.If you have cocoa powder on hand and don’t want to fuss on getting the cacao not to worry! it will taste the same, just something to consider if you’re looking to buy a better quality product.

Nutella seems to be all the craze. I mean hazelnuts and chocolate make an amazing combo. This was my first time making hazelnut milk and OMG, it was the best plant milk I have ever drank. In this recipe you can use store bought hazelnut milk although I do highly recommend you try making it from scratch! It only takes a few steps and it is so worth it! WARNING: Chances are you will become a nut milk snob if you get into the routine of making nut milks from scratch. They just do not compare to store bought nut milks!

Home Made Almond Milk

  1. Place the hazelnuts in a glass bowl or large glass jar, and cover with filtered water. Allow to soak at room temperature for 12 hours or over night.
  2. Drain, and discard the soaking liquid. Rinse the hazelnuts once with filtered water.
  3. Place the hazelnuts and water (as well as the vanilla and salt) and blend on high for 30 to 60 seconds, until the nuts are completely pulverized.
  4. To strain, place a nut milk bag (For 10% off a nut milk bag see note below) over a glass bowl, jar or jug. Pour the milk into the bag, twisting the bag closed, and gently squeezing it to pass the liquid through. Empty the hazelnut pulp aside. You can dehydrate the hazelnut pulp to use in smoothies or to make crusts.
  5. Rinse your blender container, and pour the strained milk back in.
  6. Store the milk in a sealed container in the fridge. Keep for 3-4 days in a the fridge.
