Weight Watchers Recipe of the Day: Creamy Chocolate Yogurt
Looking for a delicious nutritious way to satisfy a chocolate craving?
Stir some unsweetened cocoa powder and your sweetener of choice into plain nonfat Greek yogurt and voila – you’ve got a chocolaty creamy indulgence that’s healthy and delicious!
I love chocolate, especially the really good dark kind so I always have some on hand to satisfy a craving when it strikes. But I often have trouble meeting the Weight Watchers Good Health Guideline regarding dairy (2 servings of nonfat dairy a day).
So, when I saw this suggestion from a Leader in a recent Weight Watchers Weekly, it was a lightbulb moment: A way to enjoy a creamy chocolate treat AND increase my intake of nonfat dairy. (Talk about a win-win!)
This simple yogurt cocoa combination has become a go-to treat for me. Because Greek yogurt is so high in protein it keeps me satisfied a lot longer than the straight dark chocolate does. I tend to grab whatever Greek yogurt is most reasonably priced when I shop. Fage, Chobani, Trader Joe’s and Fresh & Easy all are favorites. According to my calculations, each serving has 1 Weight Watchers SmartPoint. You may have to adjust this depending on the kind of yogurt and/or sweetener you choose. I’m also going to experiment with adding a little PB2 (peanut butter flour).
- 4 ounces plain nonfat Greek yogurt
- 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
- 1 tablespoon xylitol or your sweetener of choice (I like Truvia)
- Stir together the yogurt, cocoa powder and your sweetener of choice until well blended.
