A delicious way to satisfy your Nutella cravings is to make this nutrient-dense Nutella Protein Shake recipe made with whey protein, cocoa, and hazelnuts.
I came up with my own version of a “Nutella” protein shake, to satisfy my wicked Nutella cravings. There’s actually no Nutella in this shake, but you get the wonderful chocolate hazelnut flavor. This drink is a meal in a glass with whey protein as the main source of protein. You also get a little extra protein (about 4 grams) from the hazelnuts, along with antioxidants from the cocoa. This shake is delicious and filling without all the added calories and sugar. However, feel free to add a dollop of Nutella to swirl into the shake. No judgment here. 😉
“Nutella” Protein Shake
28 grams of unflavored whey protein powder
1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk (can also use coconut milk or regular milk)
1/2 cup ice
1/2 frozen banana
1/4 cup chopped and very lightly toasted hazelnuts
1 2/3 tbsp cocoa powder
1 packet of stevia (I use Whole Earth sweetener)
splash good quality vanilla extract
Blend all in a Vitamix or blender and serve immediately. Makes one large serving or two small (snack size) servings.
