World Nutella Day

Were you aware that this was even a thing? I didn't, that was until I saw a post on Angie's Sweet Natured Treats. Now I think I will be a yearly participant :).

Nutella seems to have almost a cult following, people are literally obsessed. It's kind of fascinating. I enjoy some on my toast every once in a while (with sliced bananas-soooo good), as a filling in a cupcake, or made into truffles.

I laugh at the commercial with the mom who's all like "It's so hard to get my kids to eat breakfast, but when I put some Nutella on whole wheat toast they come running, and it's a great healthy way to start the day!" Yea, with 21g sugar, 22g carbs and 11g of fat in 2 tbsp. To the moms who are passing that up as a great breakfast- you're kidding yourself. But that doesn't mean it's not great as a treat once in a while!

So to...commemorate? World Nutella Day here is my Nutella treat I enjoyed:).

Nutella Latte

You will need:

  • 2 cups milk 
  • 1 cup strong black coffee
  • 1-2 tbsp Nutella
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Pour milk into a small saucepan and heat til it's simmering. Add hot coffee and whisk. Reduce heat and add in a glorious glob of Nutella, whisk until melted and combined. Take off heat and whisk in vanilla extract. Pour into 2 mugs and top with whipped cream and sifted Coco powder. I didn't have any whipped cream, but I did have a brand spankin' new tub of marshmallow fluff!

OK! We're pausing to take a trip down memory lane.

"Before I drink something, often times I eat something too!"

"They're fluffity! They're puffity! 1 2 3 4 5"
