I have a love/hate relationship with greek yogurt. I love how good it is for you...hello low-fat protein! And I usually love the taste - especially the plain with a little bit of sugar added. However, I go through phases with it. There are some weeks that I can eat it every morning and other weeks that I can't stand it. No rhyme or reason, it just happens.
So I was going through a non-yogurt phase when I saw this pin on Pinterest. I thought, hey, that looks like something I could eat even in my non-yogurt phase. I had all the ingredients on hand so I whipped some up and have been eating it every day since! Seriously, it's that good.
Here's what you need:
Plain Greek Yogurt. I used non-fat but you could use any kind. If you use vanilla, I would probably omit the sweetener as it will be sweet already. I like plain because it has that tartness that's just so good!
Peanut Butter. I used a natural PB, no added sugar. Just peanuts and salt. Mmmm. Oh I just use about a teaspoon. The PB flavor is strong enough to blend with the yogurt. If you want a more substantial PB taste, use more.
Sweetener. I used Nectresse which I love since the Influenster Vox Box. You can use anything you want - real sugar, agave, Truvia, Splenda, etc. You will need sweetener, though, so just pick the one you like best or have on hand.
Mini Chocolate Chips - So I always have minis because I think big CCs are too big. #firstworldproblems If you have regular size, that is fine too. I used semi-sweet but it's your yogurt party so add what you want! One morning, I was out of chocolate chips so I used dark cocoa powder. It was actually pretty good...not as sweet but still good. A good sub when there aren't chips or chocolate pieces on hand.
That's it. Add ingredients, stir together and enjoy! Makes a great anytime snack, although I have been having mine for breakfast. Seriously, it's like having dessert for breakfast and I'll take that any day!
Try it and let me know what you think!
Are you a greek yogurt fan? What have you mixed together lately that is worth sharing?
