If there is one thing in this world we cant say no to it’s Nutella, and I’m fairly certain we can all agree that its one of man's greatest creations – when thinking about that hazelnut, chocolate gooeyness our heart says yes but our waistline says no. After finding out 58% of Nutella is made up of sugar alone, we made it our mission to create our own version using zero processed sugars and crammed with a whole bunch of nutrients - starring our new golden child - Clever Kidz.
Clever Kidz is our new chocolate drink formulation that is the ultimate kids brain booster targeting cognitive function. Packed with 7 vitamins & minerals, prebiotics and probiotics, Omega DHA and functional herbs + superfoods, this is far from your standard chocolate milk.
Nutella just ain’t Nutella without the nut - We’ve added roasted hazelnut and coconut oil (instead of palm oil popularly used) to add some good fats, texture and of course the delicious nutty taste we all know and love.
To create the amazing rich chocolate flavour we’ve of course thrown in our Clever Kidz, made with a base of cacao, lucuma and cocoa - it also adds a touch of sweetness. For a more intensified flavour, extra certified organic cacao powder is used; you can never go wrong with a double dose of chocolate. There’s also a hint of vanilla extract to heighten all the flavours.
Instead of using 57 grams of sugar, we have opted for much healthier and less processed options to sweeten our spread - maple syrup and coconut sugar, only two tablespoons each. As mentioned before, our Clever Kidz also adds a bit of sweetness as it is sweetened by natural monk fruit powder and other fruit powders that enhance the sweet profile.
All of these ingredients are thrown into a food processor until smooth or to a texture that suits your personal preference. Finally, pop the mixture into a jar to store and enjoy without guilt by the spoonful, on toast, rice cakes, mixed in yoghurt, the versatility of this spread is endless and delicious.
