Nutella Cappuccino combines the sweet, chocolaty taste of our favorite Italian hazelnut spread and the dreamy-ness of Lavazza espresso. This is the supereasy version of this recipe, but you can feel free to complicate it however you see fit! You can use espresso powder, but you can certainly use real espresso shots. You can use a blender, but if you have a fancy espresso machine with a milk frother or one of those cool handheld frothing wands, you can use those instead.
You can also leave out the espresso to make this recipe kid-friendly it’s just as tasty as Nutella hot chocolate. If you want to be extra-fancy, garnish with a dusting of espresso, cinnamon or cocoa powder. Or chocolate shavings. Or Irish whiskey.
Recipe for Nutella Cappuccino
2 cups of milk (it will obviously taste best with whole milk, but any kind will work!)
1/2 cup Nutella
1/2 tablespoon espresso powder (or more if you like it stronger)
Add some espresso, cinnamon or cocoa powder for dusting
PREPARATION: Pour the milk into a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer, remove from heat. Pour the milk into a blender. Add Nutella and espresso powder. Run the blender on medium power until ingredients are well-combined (about 15 seconds). Fill mugs or glasses halfway with the hot milk mixture, leaving some in the blender. Run the blender on high power to froth the remaining milk. Spoon the frothy milk into mugs. Sprinkle with chocolate, espresso, cinnamon or cocoa powder.
You can drink your Nutella Cappuccino along with Nutella Covered Almonds.
What you need: Some almonds and Nutella. Pour and swaddle the Nutella over each almond and lay them on a glass pan. Stick the pan in the freezer for two hours to freeze and enjoy this amazing delicious energy bomb for your body. They melt super fast, but you can use them with some ice cream, or frozen yogurt, or just stick them in a cute bowl and enjoy with your coffee.
