Chocolate Almond Spread


You will be surprised how easy it is to churn up this decadent and yet healthy Chocolate Almond Spread. Best of all, there’s no cooking involved here. Just use your trusted blender or food processor to process all the ingredients until it reaches your preferred consistency. The original recipe was posted by Viviane from Chocolate Chilli Mango blog. The only change I made was I used store-bought organic crunchy almond butter instead of roasted almond. The result was fantastic and I couldn't agree more with Viviane that it does taste better than any other sweet chocolate and hazelnut spread. Do check out the original recipe from Chocolate Chilli Mango.


Chocolate Almond Spread

Ingredients


1 Jar (340 g) Crunchy Almond Butter
2 tsp Vanilla Paste
3 to 4 Tbsp Coconut Sugar
4 Tbsp Raw Cacao or 100% Cocoa Powder
2 Tbsp Vanilla Protein Powder (optional)
Water (adjust the consistency accordingly)

Method

Combine almond butter, vanilla paste, coconut sugar, cocoa powder, and vanilla protein powder in a food processor or a blender. Whizz all the ingredients together by adding a little water at a time until it reaches your preferred consistency. Scrape the chocolate almond spread into a clean jar and store in the refrigerator.
