Chocolate Protein Spread

hs.choco spread 014

So, Nutella admitted that their spread was not as “healthy” as they advertise. There is a difference between  a sugar/oil with a bit of cocoa and a few nuts and a food that you want to feed your kids.  Each ingredient matters and the better quality it is, the more “healthy”.  Don’t confuse this with term with being “low calorie” or “not tasty”. They all have different roles to play.

Try this easy to make ( a 2 year old can do it!) spread that has more tasty, high protein hemp seeds than any other ingredient.  It is great as a bread spread or as a fruit dip.  All ingredients are whole, natural foods that you can feel good about consuming.

Serving Size  : 8     Preparation Time :0:03

1/2  cup   Hemp Seeds
1/4  cup  cocoa powder
1   teaspoon  cinnamon
1/4  cup  maple syrup — or agave nectar

Blend seeds and cocoa powder in magic bullet for 2 minutes, add cinnamon, and maple syrup or agave. Blend until smooth.

Use as is for a spread on whole grain toast or crackers. To use as a fruit dip, thin with water.

Store in the fridge up to 2 weeks.

I love food, try to watch my weight, know more than I want to about healthy living (sometimes I wish I knew less so I wouldn’t feel so guilty when I stumble), am a daughter, sister, friend, mom and wife who worries and scurries the meals onto the table. It is for all these reasons that I completed my nutrition, RNCP designation, wrote my book, hosted my Food Network show, consult with food companies to urge them to get it right (or at least better), constantly write about it, research it, all of this so I can cut through the nutrition and food “news” clutter. Happy to share with friends!
