"Nutella Like" Metabolism Boosting and Low GI Chocolate Spread

If you love Nutella like I do, then this chocolate spread is a diet lifesaver.
Very simple and very delicious.  You've read from my previous posts of the weight loss benefits of coconut oil. Well another benefit is, it makes great chocolate!!!


  • 2 TBSP of Expelled Pressed Coconut Oil
  • 2 TBSP of Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 1TBSP of Agave Nectar (You can make it lower calorie by substituting Stevia or Splenda for Agave)
  • Optional -One drop of hazelnut extract. (Use mint extract for a new taste!)


  1. In a small glass bowl warm coconut oil in microwave for about 25 seconds. 
  2. Add cocoa powder and mix in completely. 
  3. Then add agave and stir.
  4. Let it cool in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes
  5. When ready it should be smooth and creamy and ready to eat
