A few weeks ago I posted about a sweet snack that I’ve been making since I was in college, and many of you were intrigued.
Really, it’s just a chocolate flavored yogurt. By using cocoa powder, stevia, and Greek yogurt you can create a healthy dessert with reasonable calories.
The Greek yogurt provides tons of satiating protein and friendly probiotics to aid digestion. And we all know chocolate is amazing for mental health, but did you know cocoa can decrease blood pressure, increase good HDL cholesterol, and potential help prevent heart disease and diabetes?*
As if you needed another excuse:)
The problem is that chocolate desserts usually involve lots of sugar and other not-so-great for you ingredients. Not so in this little treat! All you need is 1 container of plain Greek yogurt, a little sweetener, and unsweetened cocoa powder. Just mix it well and it turns into a healthy, chocolatey, creamy mousse!
- 1 container plain Greek yogurt of choice
- ~5 drops NuNaturals stevia or other sweetener of choice
- 1 TBSP cocoa powder
Mix together with a spoon and EAT!
I often eat it on it’s own for dessert, but it’s great with added banana, in a breakfast bowl, or on top of a sweet potato like I had the other day. Really, chocolate is good with anything so be creative.
