This recipe comes to you out of pure experimentation. I knew that when I got home after Zumba last night that I’d want something chocolatey, sweet, and yet healthy.
Oh a whim, I threw some cocoa powder, vanilla, dried cherries and a splash of milk into a half empty container of Greek yogurt. The result is decadent! The trick is to let the flavors develop for a few hours. Four, to be more precise. But, just like yesterday’s chocolate chia pudding, the wait is so worth it!
Dark Chocolate Cherry Froyo
- 1 C nonfat plain Greek yogurt, drained of excess liquid
- 2-3 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- handful dried cherries
- splash of milk – adjust for consistency
Mix together all ingredients, adding more milk as needed. Cover and set in fridge for four or more hours.
CONFESSION: This isn’t froyo in the true sense of a frozen yogurt. You COULD freeze this. But, well, it’s cold enough outside as it is, and the consistency is so perfect out of the fridge. Trust me 🙂
This is heavy on the dark chocolate flavor and light on the sweetness, so add more maple syrup to suit your tastes.
Enjoy! I did so much, that I forgot to snap a photo for you. Oops!
