Make Nutella yourself - 3 recipes & alternatives

Can you make Nutella yourself or are there suitable alternatives to Nutella chocolate cream without sugar and palm oil? Many people now know how harmful Nutella is not only for us, but also for the environment. Nevertheless, many do not want to give up the sweet cream. It's easier to give it up if you know a healthy Nutella alternative. In this article, I will therefore show you how you can make Nutella yourself and what alternatives are available on the market.

Why you should make Nutella yourself

Make Nutella yourself - What's inside Nutella

Nutella consists of two main ingredients: Sugar and palm oil. While sugar is particularly bad for our health, palm oil is not recommended, especially for sociological and environmental reasons. This is because palm oil plantations have the highest CO2 footprint per area of all globally relevant agricultural products. In addition, the workers on the plantations are often poorly paid. For Rainforests are being cut down for palm oil and many animal species lose their habitat.
Since Nutella is bad for ourselves, the environment and workers' rights, it makes logical sense to look for a Nutella alternative or simply make your own Nutella. Below I have prepared three cool and quite simple recipes for you.

Make your own Nutella - Recipe #1

This recipe is particularly healthy. It comes almost entirely without industrial sugar. Instead, avagado syrup is used.



Preheat the oven to 175 degrees.
2. place the hazelnuts on a baking tray lined with baking paper and leave them in the oven for 10 minutes.
3. remove the shells from the hazelnuts. You can do this by rubbing the nuts back and forth in the palm of your hand. Don't worry if a few shells remain, it's not too bad.
4 Grind the nuts with your blender. This may take some time. It is best to interrupt the process from time to time and scrape the mass that has collected at the edges back into the actual mass with a spoon. Mix the nuts until a cream forms.
5. now add the coconut oil, cocoa powder, vanilla powder and avocado syrup one after the other. Don't forget the pinch of salt either 😉.
6. once the cream is well mixed together, you can pour it into your jar. The "Nutella" is ready.
