If you’re doing any of the Beachbody Programs like the 21 Day Fix you’re following a healthy diet and likely using Shakeology. There are probably days when you just miss some of your favorites. For me that’s Nutella; it’s like happy hazelnut crack in a jar and I like to just eat it by the spoonful. As you can imagine that’s not so great for the waistline.
I got to thinking that you can have Shakeology, which is a treat in itself, but you can also have small portions of nuts and coconut oil. Those three ingredients are just what you need to create a guilt free chocolate hazelnut spread substitute. Something so simple becomes something delicious.
1/2 Scoop Chocolate Shakeology®
2 Cups Hazelnuts
1/4 Cup Coconut Oil, melted
Blend until smooth. Odds are you know your blender, food processor or whatever you use to blend. I use a Blendtec. It’s pretty high powered and can handle the thick nut chopping business involved here. You may need to pre-chop your nuts. Because of the natural oils it will separate some as it sits. I make a batch then use it in small bits when I need a little treat. The kids are happy to scoop it by the spoonful and will be getting bits of this in their lunch boxes as a fruit/cracker dip when school starts back up. While this is a much less guilty treat one still needs to follow self control and moderation. Use just a tsp as a nut butter replacement.
Happy Healthy Snacking!
