Nutella Lovers Vegan and Date Sweetened Healthy Chocolate Smoothie Recipe

I have been on the hunt for a good chocolate smoothie for sometime now. It is safe to say that I tried over 10 different recipes to finally end up in this one. In my quest for the “best healthy chocolate smoothie”, I wanted a recipe made with healthy ingredients and no refined sugars. I also wanted it to taste like milk chocolate. And when it comes to milk chocolate flavor, Nutella is my all-time favorite. The taste of cocoa mixed in with roasted hazelnuts and blended into a creamy concussion is to die for.

I don’t know about you, but I grew up eating Nutella every morning. My mother would spread a thick layer of it on a toast every morning for breakfast. Now years later, I do not eat Nutella everyday, but when I treat myself with a spoonfull it surely takes me back to my childhood. It is so sad that Nutella is not a healthy food that we should consume everyday.
