I am getting back on track again after the holidays and find myself turning to my arsenal of light and healthy desserts. I make this chocolate yogurt for a guilt-free easy dessert or snack and it is a very satisfying alternative to eating something naughty. It also makes a great back to school kids lunch box snack (for the kids or you).
However, this is more of a tip than a recipe. Actually, it came to me as a Weight Watchers tip. But I wasn’t expecting this part: my kids love it too! This chocolate yogurt recipe is also the base for my chocolate frozen yogurt bark: Rocky Road Froyo Bark .
I use agave in my chocolate yogurt instead of honey, as I much prefer the taste. This natural sweetener is valued as a vegan alternative to honey and touted for its low glycemic index. Although agave packs 20 calories per teaspoon, five more than granulated sugar, like honey, it’s sweeter than sugar, so you need less to achieve the same level of sweetness.
Vegan option: use a dairy-free yogurt alternative (So Delicious makes one)
This chocolate yogurt is yet another healthy chocolate snack you can add to your ‘back to school’ lunch bag food repertoire!
This 5 minute, 3 ingredient homemade healthy chocolate yogurt is a quick, non-fat, gluten-free, delicious low calorie dessert and satisfies that chocolate craving in a healthy way!
Mix all ingredients together. Add more agave and cocoa powder to your liking (Note: this will increase calorie count)
NOTE: for VEGAN- use a non-dairy yogurt alternative (So Delicious makes one)
