Nutella is one of the hardest things to separate yourself from when you become dairy free. But the more you separate yourself from it, the more you realize how unhealthy it is for you. It’s essentially a frosting – but possibly worse. Nutella has an astounding 21g sugar, while Betty Crocker’s Rich and Creamy White Frosting has 19g.
Frosting has less sugar than the Nutella?
As crazy as it sounds, yes.
To add on top of it, instead of hazelnuts or cocoa powder being the prime ingredient, sugar is. Then comes palm oil, and finally, hazelnuts and cocoa powder. Then we hit another stump. There’s milk, soy lecithin, and vanillin, an artificial flavor.
Luckily, we have hope. You can make your own nutella.
