Why This Chocolate Yogurt is SO Good

  • It’s a delicious, creamy treat everyone in the family enjoys!

Ingredients You Need

Equipment You Need

Nothing crazy, just a bowl and a small whisk! A fork could even suffice in place of a small whisk, you’ll just be sure to mix well.

How to Make This Recipe

It couldn’t be any easier! Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and then whisk together until the yogurt and mix-ins are smoothly combined.

Top Tips for Homemade Chocolate Yogurt

  • Adjust the amount and type of sweetener to your personal preference. Cane sugar, maple syrup, agave, and non-nutritive sweeteners like stevia and monk fruit also work well.
  • Be sure to mix thoroughly! Any clumping from the cocoa powder will disappear with enough whisking. You can always sift the cocoa powder into the yogurt if you find your cocoa is especially clumpy!

Serving Suggestions

Serve as is for a simple sweet treat, or bulk the yogurt into a small meal by adding ingredients like a peanut butter drizzle, slivered nuts, toasted seeds, fresh fruit, or granola.

Nutrition Highlights

Having a base of Greek yogurt means this tasty treat is rich in protein and calcium. Each serving (this recipe makes two) also has two grams of fiber, thanks to the high fiber content of cocoa powder! Add toppings like nuts, seeds, and fresh fruit to increase the fiber even more (which will make it more filling, too).

There is also far less added sugar than traditional store-bought sweetened yogurts. Try adding fruit like strawberries, blueberries, or banana slices for more natural sweetness!

Is it healthy?

Chocolate yogurt can absolutely fit in a healthy, balanced diet! It’s a filling, high protein snack, and it can make a delicious vessel for other nourishing toppings, like fiber-filled fruit and nuts. Being very lightly sweetened means there is far less added sugar than the majority of store-bought sweetened yogurts.

    1. It will only turn into frozen yogurt if you use an ice cream maker, so that the yogurt mixture will consistently be churning and moving while freezing to prevent crystallization. If not (like if you were to pour it into a container and just put it in the freezer) it will freeze in a solid block with lots of ice crystals from the water content.

  1. This recipe was quite sour, and I liked the resulting yogurt less than the plain yogurt, even after adding more than twice the recommended honey. It was quite soupy and all around disappointing. I found a different recipe for vanilla yogurt to be much more satisfactory.

    1. I’m so sorry to hear that, Grace! I haven’t heard this issue ever in the years the recipe’s been posted. What brand Greek yogurt did you use? I wonder if that caused an issue? I will say, I recently re-worked this recipe to make it more simple with a vanilla Greek yogurt base, so you’ll soon see this recipe republished accordingly!
