Recipe: Nutella Smoothie

by Cate on May 27, 2014

A delicious and simple smoothie recipe with only three ingredients … Perfection.

I was standing in front of the yogurt section at our Costco. When I spied the big containers of Greek yogurt, I remembered a smoothie recipe that I just saw over the weekend.

“Nick, I saw a recipe for smoothies that had Greek yogurt, bananas, and Nutella. Want to try it?”

Ew gross.

Which mostly didn’t surprise me. Because while he looooves smoothies and makes them daily, he doesn’t like Nutella.

I know. It’s just as surprising to me too.

But I bought the yogurt anyway because a) it’s heaps cheaper at Costco and b) I would still it eat myself if he didn’t like it in the smoothie (perfect with a sprinkling of crunchy granola and a drizzle of honey).

So yesterday, we were having a perfectly chill Memorial Day. The kind of day that straddles that balance between doing fun things in the neighborhood and doing nothing.

If “doing nothing” equates to the seven loads of laundry I did.

And while the kids were eating lunch, I quickly whipped up a batch of the smoothies, portioning it out into three glasses.

Minutes later I heard the unmistakable slurp of empty glasses.

“Hmm, I guess it wasn’t gross after all, huh Nick?”

No, it was good. Can you make more?

And Mom wins again.

Super simple to make and with only three ingredients, they are delicious without a ton of guilt. Just the right amount of chocolate flavor with a hint of the banana and Greek yogurt. For the second batch, I used half of the Nutella called for. While I love Nutella, it’s not exactly low calorie. Just two tablespoons still delivered all the chocolatey flavor we needed.

*This is our favorite mini blender for mixing up smoothies.
