Today I want to share with you my recipe for the healthiest Ferrero Rocher chocolate you will ever have! I know you are thinking that healthy and chocolate is not possible, but believe me it is and once you try this, there is no going back! As a child ferrero rocher for me was the most exotic and amazing chocolate ever! I used to eat it layer by layer, marvelling how they got the hazelnut right in the centre. I think it was extra special because in India hazel nuts are not easily available and it add to the exclusivity of this chocolate. It seems obvious that I had to recreate a healthy version of my childhood favourite chocolate!
Now how can you make a healthy ferrero rocher chocolate? Simple, you use sugar free raw chocolate, add some green superfoods and protein and voila! A healthy ferrero rocher chocolate!
I reworked my delicious rose & pistachio energy balls in this recipe. I substituted hazelnuts for the nuts. This is essential if you want to get the ferrero rocher flavour. In fact after making this version, I realised the flavour in a ferrero rocher is all in the hazelnuts! I then added some green superfoods into the energy balls.
I was approached by the VITL health company to try out their VITL super greens. They sent me over a neat box with 25 gram sachets of green super foods. I was amazed by the list of superfoods it had which included spirulina, maca, goji berries, green tea, beetroot, kale, turmeric and much more! It was so convenient to add to smoothies and possibly any dessert to give it a healthy boost. It also has vanilla flavour so it gives a delicious overall flavour. I knew I had to add it to my healthy ferrero rocher recipe for the added health benefits. Check out their website for a whole host of nutrition supplements and healthy superfood mixes.
For the chocolate, I used my home made raw tempered chocolate but feel free to use any shop bought raw chocolate (you can read about my favourite shop bought raw chocolate brand here). Or use a really dark chocolate with sugar content not more than 20gms per 100gms of chocolate.
The best part of this recipe is that it is super simple to make! Few ingredients ready in less than an hour, you really should give this healthy ferrero rocher recipe a try. And seriously, this is the healthiest and most delicious version ever! (Even if I say so myself :))
