A delicious way to satisfy your Nutella cravings is to make this nutrient-dense Nutella Protein Shake recipe made with whey protein, cocoa, and lightly toasted 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 and swirl it into the shake. Absolutely no judgment here. 😉
Nutella Protein Shake
28 grams of unflavored whey protein powder
1 ½ cups unsweetened almond milk (can also use coconut milk or regular milk)
½ cup ice
½ frozen banana
2 tablespoon chopped and very lightly toasted hazelnuts
1 ⅔ tablespoon cocoa powder
1 packet of stevia (I use Whole Earth sweetener)
splash good quality vanilla extract
*Optional: A teaspoon of Nutella swirled in 😉
Blend all in a Vitamix or blender and serve immediately. Makes one large serving or two small (snack size) servings.
