Vegan Nutella

Becoming vegan, I was horrendously sad to concede that Nutella, the most wonderous invention of mankind, was in fact far from vegan. It has skim milk and whey :( Baaaaaaah

Thus, I set out on a symbolic and defining journey to create VEGAN NUTELLA.

My food processor, while pretty good at what it does, is not at all superb quality, so I ran into some hiccups in making Nutella. You need a high-quality food processor to turn any nut into nut butter, but as a stalwart guardian of the sacred Nutella brotherhood, I thought of a way around it.

Vegan Nutella

1/3 cup dark cocoa
2 cups hazelnuts
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup almond milk
2 tbsp canola oil
2 tsp vanilla

-I tried to cut down on the "sugary" flavor of the Nutella and enhance the nut flavor. Heh heh.

-Simply begin to process the nuts until they are a fine meal, or until the mixture gets "stuck" and won't mix any longer. Add the almond milk and oil in to allow it to blend further. Blend for a couple minutes.

-Add the other ingredients and blend. Add more cocoa or sugar depending on your tastes! I've been eating this all day. FFFFFF so good.
