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 voilà, 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 light bulb moment: A way to enjoy a creamy chocolate treat AND increase my intake of non-fat 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.
How to Make this Yogurt Snack
Step 1: Gather yogurt, cocoa powder and sweetener.
Step 2: Add yogurt to a small bowl .
Step 3: Add the cocoa powder and sweetener to the yogurt.
Step 4: Stir with a spoon until thoroughly combined. Enjoy!
