Nutella is a popular Italian brand name for a hazelnut-butter that has become synonymous with chocolate spreads. It’s probably safe to say when most people think of a chocolate spread, Nutella is what comes to mind. Unfortunately, Nutella is not vegan because it contains skimmed milk powder and whey powder, but there are other brands of chocolate-hazelnut spread that do not contain any dairy or any other animal-based ingredients, which means they are 100 percent vegan.
Vegan Chocolate-Hazelnut Spreads
If you’re looking for a vegan alternative to Nutella, you may want to try one of these brands. Most of these brands use the same main ingredients as Nutella – hazelnuts, palm oil, cocoa – so they still taste just like Nutella even though they don’t contain any dairy. Some would say they even taste better than Nutella.
