Liquid “Nutella” – thick, creamy, chocolate drink with wonderful hazelnut aroma that is actually good for you.
Last summer I tried hazelnut milk for the first time and was thrilled with it. It tasted like liquid nutella, except that it had no chocolate in it. I thought that I will have to try making it into a hot beverage, similar to hot chocolate. Since we are now in the middle of the winter, it seemed like a right time to try this idea out.
I’m very satisfied with the outcome of the experiment. I got thick, creamy chocolate drink with wonderful hazelnut aroma. The best thing is that it is actually good for you: lot of healthy ingredients and very little fat and sugar. If you want to make it more rich, you can add a teaspoon of coconut oil, like I did 🙂
Topped with some whipped topping and chocolate sprinkles, Liquid “Nutella” drink is a luxurious and healthy treat that anybody can easily make at home.
