How to Make Healthy Nutella Using an Avocado
Avocados are one of my favorite healthy baking substitutes because of the creamy texture they give almost ANYTHING! I was making avocado toast the other day and thought, "I should mix cocoa powder in this - I bet it would taste like Nutella."
So, here we are: with a HEALTHY Nutella Avocado Spread!
I love chocolate. Especially in the mornings, I love to start my day off with something sweet. Avocado toast is one of my favorite breakfasts and snacks, but it is usually more of a savory treat rather than sweet.
UNTIL NOW! I am a firm believer that you can add chocolate to pretty much anything and it will taste good... Okay so maybe not ANYTHING - but most things.
Avocados are pretty much flavorless when you mix them with another strong flavor. Cocoa powder has a very bitter taste naturally, so I added stevia (a plant based sweetener) to this spread to sweeten things up a bit.
An optional addition to this recipe (but I did add it, and I included it in the nutrition facts) is 1/2 a scoop of collagen peptides. I have been OBSESSED with collagen lately. I use Further Food's flavorless powder and I like to mix it in to my protein shakes every morning. It blends perfectly with this spread and is a great way to get some extra protein in any recipe. Collagen is also super good for your hair, skin, feeling of satisfaction, and even helps with muscle repair.
If you still want a boost of protein but would rather use protein powder, you can do that too. I use Unico Nutrition's protein powder and it is great for adding a boost of flavor to any recipe. If you want to try Unico's APOLLO protein powder for yourself, you can use "BOWERS20" for 20% off on www.uniconutrition.com.
So, if you're looking for a healthy way to satisfy that craving for Nutella we all get occasionally, look no further. This recipe only has FOUR ingredients and tastes like a chocolate dream! Check out the recipe below!
