This chocolate greek yogurt dip is absolutely the perfect thing to tide you over when you’re craving sweets, but you’re not ready to take a face-first plunge into a pan of brownies. If you love greek yogurt as much as I do, you’ll probably appreciate this “dip”/yogurt, which takes regular plain greek yogurt and turns it into a pretty healthy treat. Maple syrup really curbs the tang of the plain yogurt and turns it into a mild, sweet dip and the cocoa powder gives it a chocolatey depth.
There are plenty of variations I’m sure would be awesome: mixing some shredded coconut in, or some toasted walnuts (yum), crushed up Oreos to lessen the healthy factor and up the delicious factor…
I love dipping fruits and graham grackers into it, but really I like it best just eaten on it’s own, like a semi healthy chocolate pudding.
Chocolate Greek Yogurt Dip
from Edible Perspective
1 cup plain, unsweetened greek yogurt
2-4 T. unsweetened cocoa powder (depending on how dark-chocolatey you want it)
1 T. maple syrup
1/4 t. vanilla extract
3 T. dark chocolate chips
Mix ingredients together until there are no lumps from the cocoa powder and add more maple syrup if desired. Top with chocolate chips and enjoy with fruit, pita chips, graham grackers, etc, or just eat on its own. Chill (covered) in the fridge.
