Chocolate yogurt?

Hey everyone! So I know what you're thinking, chocolate yogurt sounds crazy right?! Well I was shopping with my mom this weekend when I came across this little treat in the dairy aisle.

You already know that I am a huge fan of Greek style yogurt (now more than ever, as I'm trying to keep up with the stress of school) and what girl doesn't love chocolate? Of course I had to pick up a carton to try, I figured that it could be a healthier alternative to my beloved ice cream.

I served myself up a dish last night, ready for great things. What I got was...interesting. The taste was a little artificially sweet, and the "chunks" were more along the line of shavings. I won't say it was bad because I certainly ate my whole dish, but I knew I could make it better :)

A little coco powder, a few chopped almonds, and about 20 minutes in the freezer and this is the result.

The same creamy smoothness (and tart bite) that I love in Greek yogurt, with a rich chocolate flavor and a little bit of crunch. 

It's Monday everyone, which means we all could use a little pick me up. So go out and make yourself a cup, you won't regret it!

Chobani Chocolate "Mousse"

Serves 1

1 heaping teaspoon unsweetened coco powder (more if you want a dark chocolate feel)
6 oz (give or take I won't tell) Chobani 2% chocolate chunk yogurt
3-5 almonds roughly chopped (hazelnuts would be really good too, giving it a Nutella feel)

Combine yogurt and coco powder in a single serving dish. Place in the freezer for 15-20 minutes (much longer and it starts to get icy). When ready to eat sprinkle with chopped nuts and enjoy. 


  1. As always...CHOBANI is the best yogurt in town. Thanks for sharing this one!
