Today is World Nutella Day but for lots of people every day is Nutella day. I love Nutella but the problem is that my hips love it too. And eating Nutella by the spoonful seems to make the hips grow, and like most women I want them to shrink instead of grow 😉 So I just don’t buy it any more. But for World Nutella Day hosted by Ms Adventures in Italy and Bleeding Espresso I made an execption and bought me a jar. By the time I made these Nutella espresso’s it was already nearly half empty 🙂
I came across this drink when we were living in Tel Aviv. It was on the menu of one of our neighbourhood cafe’s. The combination of pure Nutella, a shot of espresso and some frothed milk was delicious! And such an easy recipe too. Have been wanting to recreate it for two years now but as I don’t own an espresso machine I never did. Still don’t own one so I’m afraid the Nutella espresso you see in the picture was made with instant espresso…I know….shame on me 😉 but it was very good despite it!
You can adjust the amount of Nutella to your taste. If you would follow the recipe you would have an not too sweet espresso with a good chocolately-hazelnutty taste. If you like your coffee sweet and more Nutella-y I’d add an extra half tablespoon of Nutella.
1 tbs Nutella
45 ml (3 tbs) espresso
Spoon the Nutella into a small glass (if it is too stiff, pop in the microwave for 10 seconds). Pour in the espresso and top it off with some frothed milk.
Stir well before drinking.
