I’ve got the very first recipe for you.
ACHTUNG (warning in German…just being annoying plus it sounds better) Since I’m a wee bit addicted to chocolate, a lot of my recipes will contain cocoa.
I’d call the recipe a healthy version of Nutella.
So, here’s what you’ll need:
BRAINS – just kidding, you’ll manage even without
- 100g banana
- 10g cocoa
- 20g peanut butter
Blend everything together until smooth. Use as a spread on bread or anything you like.
Keep refrigerated up to 3 days.
Why choose chocotella over our favourite Nutella?
Well, common Nutella or any other similar chocolate spread you’d normally buy in a shop is mainly made of refined white sugar (aka the silent killer), palm oil (if you think it’s the coconut raw virgin one, you’re mistaken), a bit of cocoa, nuts and lastly skim milk powder. Yep. Yummy.
So what do you get from this?
- tons of sugar (usually more than 50%), which significantly harms your teeth. Sugar is “empty calories” = pure instant energy, no vitamins, minerals, proteins, fibre… -> not nutritious at all. May increase risk of diseases (not only gives you energy, it also feeds the bad guys in your body…hurray cancer!), it is addictive, increases blood glucose levels (wanna have diabetes?), and much more…
- skim milk powder, which is basically just dried milk. Do you think cow’s milk is good for your health? Well, there are plenty of present-day studies proving it wrong. It causes the bones to break (osteoporosis), most people are lactose intolerant (unable to digest milk) or allergic (a good indicator of being allergic is having any kind of skin or digestive problems), causes acne, increases cholesterol, cows are stuffed with antibiotics (hence your milk), and much more…
If this still hasn’t convinced you to choose the raw vegan super healthy nutritious version, here are some more reasons:
- It takes only a while to prepare it… who wouldn’t like cooking anyway?
- It is super nutritious!
Banana – healthy sugars (carbohydrates), fibre, vitamins (unlike white sugar)
Cocoa, nuts – source of protein, fibre, vitamins, healthy fats
- It tastes great
- It’s vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, cruelty-free, blabla…
- It’s whole foods mixed up together
…and if you’re still having doubts… well, I’ve tried. Use internet for more detailed info. Live long, my friend.
P.S. Live healthily, but also happily. Just always seek the healthier version of what you love.
