Bali Nutra “Nutella” Recipe

Bali Nutra HQ want to celebrate the national holiday that is World Nutella Day! We are sharing with you our favourite VEGAN, REFINED SUGAR FREE and GUILT FREE, hazelnut and chocolate spread recipe. It is both easy and delicious and lets you enjoy the praline goodness of our favourite spread, without the naughtiness.

Our delicious praline spread is full of antioxidants and vitamins, unlike the famous spread itself which is full of palm oil (70% saturated fat) and is 55% processed sugar. Using Bali Nutra coconut syrup instead of refined sugar keeps your dish ethically sourced and gives it a low GI, making it suitable for diabetics!

 

Bali Nutra Praline Spread

(makes one jar)

2.5 cups of Organic Raw Hazelnuts (available from your local healthstore)

2 tsp Organic Vanilla Extract

1/3 cup Raw Cacao Powder

1/3 cup Bali Nutra coconut syrup

2 tblsp Organic Coconut Oil

2/3 cup Almond Milk

 

Method

Place raw hazelnuts to roast on a baking tray in an oven preheated to 200c/gas mark 6. Roast for approximately 10 minutes. Allow to cool then remove skins of hazelnuts by rubbing in palms of hands until they fall off. It doesn’t matter if all of the skin doesn’t come off. Add all of the ingredients and the Bali Nutra into your blender, adding the hazelnuts last. Pulse this mixture, stopping now and again to check if you need to add more almond milk to make it smooth and creamy. Store in an airtight glass container and enjoy as you would it’s sugary friend!

Bali Nutra Coconut Syrup at The Cereal Killer Cafe Launch

All of us at Bali Nutra had been counting down the days until the 10th of December – the launch of highly anticipated cereal only cafe in Brick Lane. Cereal Killer Cafe was the brainchild of twins Gary and Alan Keery, who decided to bring their retro and colourful creation to life with a bang. It was with excitement that we were given the chance to be involved in this awesome adventure with them.

Although many think of Cereal and think of breakfast sugar rushes and highly additive filled lucky charms cereal, The Cereal Killer Cafe also offer a healthy option for those with the inclination. Cereal Killer Cafe has a large range of healthy (but delicious) cereals including some gorgeous creations from our friends at Rude Health. We decided that we could be a great healthy option for their sugar counter, where we now have our shiny bottles pride of place.

So if you are in the area, pop in! They have an incredible range of cereals – whether you’re on a treat day, or just fancy a bowl of Rude Health’s nutritious grains with a lashing of Bali Nutra.

In Gary’s own words Bali Nutra coconut syrup has “a good flavour to it” and he likes a drop or two in his coffee.

Gary and Alan have done an amazing job of decorating the cafe, with original drawings of Tony the Tiger and many old toys from cereal boxes adorning the walls. Their eclectic jumble of retro snippets and memorabilia make the cafe somewhere to be transported back to the 80s and 90s. The speakers play music to transport you to your more youthful days and the staff are friendly and helpful.

We can’t recommend this place enough. It has something for everyone.
