Fresh Orange Juice and Nutella Smoothie

By Bevi
January 19, 2012

Author Notes: One of my new year's resolutions is to get back into Nutella, but I want to disguise it as a healthy ingredient whenever possible. A smoothie with fresh orange juice and non-fat Greek yogurt works well with a touch of the Magic Stuff. The orange juice and Greek yogurt provide a nice, tangy counterpoint to the Divineness formerly known as Nutella. Use any variation of "Nutella" that you have on hand.Bevi

Makes: two 8-ounce servings

Ingredients

  • a handful of ice cubes
  • 1/2 cup Fage 0% Yogurt
  • 1/2 to 1 cups fresh squeezed orange juice - for a thick smoothie, start with 1/2 cup and add more juice if desired
  • 1 tablespoon Nutella, or a Nutella variation - there are many on the market
In This Recipe

Directions

  1. Place the ice in a blender. Add the yogurt, and then the orange juice. For a very thick smoothie, use 1/2 cup of orange juice. Blend at high speed until you achieve your desired smoothie consistency. Add the Nutella and blend again. Enjoy and don't feel guilty.

bevi, what a clever girl you are! love this idea. just wanted to tell you about another nutella-like product that is much better (imo of course). Maybe you can find it if you have a Whole Foods nearby. It is in a jar, Justin's Chocolate Hazelnut Spread.Comes in both milk choco and dark choc versions, also an almond version. great product; very pure. thanks much for this recipe. i'll be going for it!
