Like Nutella, this chocolate-hazelnut smoothie bowl is quite addictive with sweet chocolate, hazelnuts, a hint of vanilla and a touch of salt.
Nutella, in smoothie bowl form! Why didn’t I think of this before?
There is something addictive about hazelnuts plus chocolate with a hint of vanilla and a touch of salt. It is the perfect combination and incredibly decadent.
I basically took these star ingredients from Nutella and combined them with hazelnut milk, ice and riced frozen cauliflower to make it thick and creamy. What did I leave out? I omitted the palm oil, artificial flavors and sugar that are found in Nutella. I naturally sweetened the smoothie with dates and used cacao powder for the chocolate flavor. You are left with all the wonderful Nutella flavor in a frosty, smoothie bowl that you can feel really good about indulging in. I then topped it with all the things that pair well with Nutella flavors: bananas, fresh berries and granola.
This smoothie bowl is filling, full of plant-based protein, healthy fats and dietary fiber and so incredibly satisfying.
In these photos I show two versions (same smoothie base but different toppings). Do whatever makes you happy. You really cannot go wrong with this sweet treat. This smoothie recipe is vegan, soy-free, gluten-free, peanut-free and refined sugar-free.
