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 (affiliate link).
Step 3: Add the cocoa powder and sweetener to the yogurt.
Step 4: Stir with a spoon until thoroughly combined. Enjoy!

Great idea! And so easy!
This is very tasty and feels indulgent. I used 1 tablespoon of xylitol and 1 tablespoon of Erythritol because I don't like the tangy taste of the yogurt unless I'm using it to replace sour cream in a savory dish. I'll be making this frequently,
Hi Tricia, glad you liked it!!
Love this, thank you! I used Splenda because that's what I had in the kitchen. Tastes almost like frozen yogurt. Happy to get my chocolate fix while still being WW friendly. 🙂
Forgot to add - 5 stars for getting me my chocolate in a healthy way. 🙂
Thanks Jenn! As a fellow chocolate lover, your comment is music to my ears 🙂
When I make this, I add a splash of vanilla. It cuts the tang of the yogurt.
Hi Kay, thanks for the great suggestion.
What yogurt are you using for 1 smart point? What amount?
Hi Susan, I used 4 ounces or 1/2 cup of plain nonfat Greek yogurt. There are several brands showing up in the WW online Tracker with 1 SP for that amount including Kirkland, Trader Joes, Greek Gods and Stonyfield Farm. Hope this helps.
Another tip. Weight Watcher centers carry coffee creamers that are zero points. I use the creamer in plain nonfat Greek. I love the chocolate and the pumpkin flavors. I mix 1 packet of creamer with 1/2 cup yogurt. So yummy.
i add frozen bananas so good!
Is this good for a diabetic also?
Sooo good! It tastes like chocolate sour cream cake. Thanks for the great recipe!
This was great! Worked perfectly with regular plain yogurt. Added some peanut butter powder. Yum!
I didn't like this and I was so disappointed. I love chocolate but I don't like yogurt. I used vanilla yogurt and I even used 2 stevia packets bc it wasn't sweet enough for one for me. Overall I think the problem is just that it is a little bit bitter and there was nothing to save this from being bitter. It's a great idea though if it works for you.
Hi Katie, I can understand how this didn't work for you if you don't like yogurt! ~Martha
Is great! Many thanks!
I was a little skeptical before I tasted but let me tell you this dessert is delicious and satisfying ????????
Delicious and very easy!
I use Greek yogurt with a box of fr chocolate pudding and it is so yummy!?
That is fat free chocolate pudding.
Add a dash of salt, a tsp of sugar free chocolate pudding and use the Hershey's Special Dark cocoa, YUMMMMMMMMMMMMM
Yum.Yum.Yum!!! Thanks for sharing, Dana. 🙂
I accidentally bought full fat Greek yogurt (I’ll get nonfat next time) and used it for this recipe. I was craving ice cream and this satisfied me. I put more sweetener in it, I didn’t like the sourness with just one tablespoon.
