By request: Chocolate yogurt dip

I came up with this when I had a desperate craving for chocolate pudding. In the end, I like this much better than pudding! I usually serve it as a dip with fruit, but you can also eat it as is.

Quantities are all approximate. Just make it "to taste".

1.5 c. plain fatfree yogurt (if it's runny, use a large quantity and strain it)
1/4 to 1/3 c. cocoa powder
sweetener to taste (I use Splenda, but sugar or even maple syrup work)

Whisk all ingredients together until smooth. DO NOT USE BLENDER.
Chill at least 30 mins.

  1. This is SO perfect! I've been looking for easy recipes, low to no fat, & also less sugar. Great, will make this today, always have those ingredients. Thank you!

    1. I find that honey works better than sugar for sweetening yogurt. For some reason, the sugar makes the yogurt thin out, it keeps it's thick consistency (I use Total) w/ the honey.

      1. I bet that would also be good if you used vanilla yogurt.

        1. One problem I have with any chocolate yogurts is that tang that doesn't quite taste right with chocolate to me. Do you find that with this recipe?

            Personally, I like the tang. But if you don't, straining yogurt gets rid of most of it (the whey's responsible). Or use Fage yogurt.

              Also, try dutch processed cocoa, also called alkalized unsweetened cocoa. It has been treated to neutralize the natural acid in cocoa and will reduce the tang factor associated with non-alklized cocoa powders.

            2. Have you tried Stonyfield Farm's Fat Free Chocolate Underground yogurt? It has more calories than your recipe because it has sugar in it, but it is nice and chocolatey.
