Homemade Vegan Nutella

This homemade vegan spin on store-bought Nutella is just as creamy, chocolatey, and delicious!

This recipe uses cashews for a more affordable option compared to hazelnuts. If you want to use hazelnuts, go right ahead! You could also use half cashews, half hazelnuts!


1 cup cashews, soaked in hot water for 30 minutes (here's my favorite brand)

¼ cup date paste (see recipe here)

1 tsp vanilla extract

¼ tsp sea salt

¼ cup cocoa powder

2-4 tbsp non-dairy milk


1. Drain cashews and place all ingredients in a food processor or high-powered blender. Blend until smooth, scraping down the sides as needed.

2. Slowly add additional non-dairy milk until desired consistency.
