You’ll only need 4 ingredients to make this delicious Chocolate Hazelnut Milk aka Nutella Milk at home! It’s perfect for coffee, granola, overnight oats, baking or to sip on its own!
I usually don’t drink (vegan, obviously) milk. I use it for baking, in overnight oats, or eat it with granola but I don’t go to the fridge and take a sip of milk. Until now.
This Chocolate Hazelnut Milk tastes like Nutella Milk! It’s so good. I’ve drunk the whole bottle over the course of two days because it was so flavorful and delicious! I just couldn’t stop.
Whenever I was in the mood for chocolate or something sweet, I’ve taken a sip of this milk. Craving satisfied.
How to make Chocolate Hazelnut Milk

The basic steps
Step 1: Soak hazelnuts in water overnight.
Step 2: Add the hazelnuts, cocoa powder, and dates to a blender.
Step 3: Add 2 cups of fresh water.
Step 4: Blend.
Step 5: Pour the mixture through a nut milk bag.
Expert tip: A good nut milk bag is even more important than a powerful blender. I’ve found that a nylon nut milk bag works best! The milk is perfectly smooth and silky.
