Food Geek Friday: Chocolate Yogurt Dip

I came across a version of this recipe a while back. Can't remember where since, like most recipes, I glanced over it and then went on my own. Unless you're baking...recipes are merely suggestions anyway.

What I really love about this recipe is that, while I originally saw it as a fruit dip, it can also stand in as a healthy option for dessert or even breakfast.

Chocolate for breakfast?

Count me in.

Chocolate Yogurt Dip

Chocolate Yogurt DipIngredients

  • Plain Greek yogurt (higher in protein with a thicker, creamier and more sustantial texture than regular plain yogurt)
  • cocoa powder
  • maple syrup
  • vanilla extract
  • Optional add-ins: ground cinnamon or ground chipotle (or both for a Mexican style)

Directions

  1. Combine all of the ingredients. Since I don't measure, you'll want to play around with the flavor. Want it sweeter? More maple. Too sweet? More yogurt and/or cocoa powder. Not chocolatey enough? More cocoa powder. Flavor seem a little flat? More vanilla.
  2. Serve with seasonal fruit

Enjoy!
