Make a spread yourself – healthy and easy!
A slice of bread can turn into a gourmet wonder if you make a spread yourself. The types of spreads are unbelievably endless because the imagination knows no bounds. We give you a few basic recipes, the other we leave you. If you know the basic principle, you can let your imagination run wild!
Spreads taste everyone!
We do not exaggerate when we say that the spreads are for everyone. From almost all products you can make a spread yourself. The spreads also please the children very much – which child does not like bread with butter and something else on it? If your children do not like to eat vegetables or herbs, give them as a spread! The spreads are also very appropriate to a vegan diet because vegans want to know quite well what’s in and what’s not.
The classic – tomato – mozzarella spread
We can eat tomato mozzarella every season, but is not the salad boring? These products taste even better on the bread! Try this simple recipe!
Ingredients: 3 tomatoes, 125 g mozzarella, shallot to taste, basil, 2 tablespoons tomato paste, 1 teaspoon dried herbs (not compulsory), 1 tablespoon olive oil, salt and pepper to taste.

Add two-thirds of the diced tomatoes, shallots, mozzarella and tomato paste to a high bowl. Add the basil, herbs and olive oil. Puree everything smoothly. To taste, season with salt and pepper.
Something sweet – cocoa cream for 5 minutes
Something sweet for breakfast gives a power start to the day. Choose suitable fruits for the season and prepare a jam and jam yourself. All berry varieties, plums and apricots are even more delicious on a slice of bread. But what do you say about the classic – chocolate or cocoa cream? Here is the recipe for you:
All you need is 3 tbsp cocoa powder, 2 tbsp white almond flour, 50 ml soy milk and 1 handful of hazelnuts to give you the Nutella flavor! Grind the hazelnuts in a blender and add soy milk and almond paste. Everything you need to mix to a spreadable cream. Finally, add the cocoa powder … and you’re done in 5 minutes!
And something for vegans – Pesto Trapanese
You already know the basic principle for making spreads yourself. For this vegan pesto mix similar to fresh tomatoes, garlic, basil and a little olive oil. We also recommend Parmesan! This classic tastes very good on pasta and pizza too! In the original recipe comes without tomato paste, but try the two variants.
How do you make your spreads last?
Really, the spreads from supermarket are more durable. But the reason is the preservatives and additives. For homemade they are missing and they spoil very fast. We have a tip for you to make your spreads more durable. When you have cooked your spreads, fill them into jars and put them in a saucepan for eight to ten minutes in boiling water. In nice glasses the spreads look even more delicious and are ideal for homemade gifts.
