This is so incredibly simple, I’m not even sure it warrants being called a recipe really, but it’s something I experimented with recently when I fancied something sweet yet wholesome as a snack that was low carb too.
I’m following a low carb diet which helps balance my hormones and keeps my weight on track, but I can’t say no to sugar completely (life would be miserable if I did).
Enter stage left this complete babe of a chocolate yogurt.
A three ingredient taste sensation, I’ve been making up big batches for a quick breakfast and I love this as a dessert after dinner.
I saw a recipe the other day on FB where protein powder is added to the yogurt too for an additional muscle building hit so do consider adding some too.
This really is the most simply delicious treat imaginable and you can use coconut yogurt and maple syrup for a vegan option if you prefer and you can top with fruit of your choice too. I went for the less healthy, chocolate shavings option here! I did pop a raspberry on top at least on some of them!
I had run out of dark chocolate so ended up using Green & Blacks milk chocolate here which isn’t really a low carb option. I only ended up eating a tiny bit though and didn’t get a sugar crash dip as I would if I’d eaten lots.
After rustling these up in literally minutes, my husband took the prettiest pictures ever. Swoon. Yogurt has never looked so good huh!
- 450 g plain full fat Greek yogurt
- 2 tablespoon cocoa powder
- 1 tablespoon honey (use maple syrup if you prefer)
- fruit (raspberries, strawberries or bananas are my favourite combos with the chocolate)
- chocolate shavings
- granola (gluten-free apricot, date and coconut granola recipe)
Mix the ingredients in a bowl and serve in smaller ramekins or clear glasses. Decorate with desired garnish. Enjoy.
