World Nutella Day

 Last March, I caught Sam doing this.  Yes, Nutella, cocoa powder, and peanut butter do make great building blocks!

But they sure do make a great milkshake!  (Recipe below)

At the same time, I thought--Ooo, I can join World Nutella Day!

What is World Nutella Day?

It started out as a made-up holiday, celebrating all things Nutella.  Once upon a time, Sara, an expat blogger in Italy, fell in love with Nutella.  She wanted to share that love with the world, and declared one day in February to be World Nutella Day.  She enlisted some other expat blogger friends, and slowly but surely, it became a thing.  (For the full story, click here.  For full disclosure, I found out about WND through Sonia at

World Nutella Day, and Nutella itself, gained popularity, and now even Ferrero (the owner of Nutella) officially is in charge of World Nutella Day.  As the founder of WND stated, it´s one way that bloggers changed the world.

Isn´t that empowering?

So, to completely join in, here´s my favorite Nutella recipe.

Peanut Butter Banana Nutella Milkshakes

(Warning:  there are no exact measurements for this recipe.)

Take 2-3 very ripe bananas, and throw them in the blender.

Add one cup of milk for every person who wants a milkshake.

Throw in a few tablespoons of peanut butter, a some generous shakes of cocoa powder, and a few tablespoons of Nutella, and a few more shakes of ground cinnamon.

Blend it up and serve.
