[dropcap]N[/dropcap]utella is marketed as a healthy breakfast product for kids. However, the label tells me that it consists of a whopping 55% of sugar and only 13% of hazelnuts. Please tell me: why is that a responsible breakfast product for kids? I’m lost …
Here’s a healthy avocado-based recipe for raw, vegan, sugar free Nutella; healthy enough for kids’ breakfast, model-proof!

Low nutritional value of Nutella
As you can see on the ingredient list and nutritional values above, the nutritional value of Nutella is low. Nutella consists mainly of sugar (that’s why sugar is listed first on the ingredient list) and then there’s a bit of healthy ingredients like hazelnuts and cacao. Although there are some healthy ingredients in Nutella, this doesn’t make Nutella a responsible product.
Can’t live without Nutella?
Well, I can’t! How do I solve this problem? By making my own healthy answer to Nutella: Notella!
Notella can be eaten every day; by kids ànd by models!
Nutrient rich answer to Nutella: Notella!
I discovered how to make Notella by accident when I was making my Paleo Snickers Christmas dessert. The top layer tasted just like Nutella, just slightly more bitter, since I used 100% cacao and no milk whatsoever.
Here’s a recipe for avocado based, sugar free, vegan Notella that can be eaten every day for breakfast, both by kids ànd models 😉
- 2 ripe, soft Hass avocado's
- 2 tbs cacao powder
- 6 drops of liquid vanilla stevia or to taste (available in my shop)
- 1/2 C halved hazelnuts
- Combine the avocado, cacao and stevia in a food processor and blend until the mixture is smooth.
- Mix in the hazelnuts.
- Et voilá: bon appetit!
- Store in a jar in the fridge (or freezer if you want to save a part of the Notella for longer time).
