Recipe: Probiotic Chocolate Yogurt Pudding

I have been craving mangos lately.  Lucky for me the Chinese grocery store sells 3 mangos for a $1.00!

While fruit is great for you, it is always better to combine it with protein so you feel fuller for longer. Strained Greek-styled yogurt is high in protein and low in carbs. So I thought, why not combine mango with strained yogurt!

Since I use plain Astro 0% Fat yogurt (my very favourite yogurt) to make Greek-styled yogurt, flavour needs to be added. There are so many possibilities when it comes to flavour: vanilla, cinnamon, maple, lemon... I had cocoa powder on hand, so the yogurt was reborn as chocolate yogurt.

What a fun combination this turned out to be! The yogurt had the taste and consistency of chocolate pudding and complimented my beloved mango perfectly.

Prepare to drool!

3 simple ingredients needed: strained yogurt (I love my Astro yogurt), cocoa and agave syrup

The Greek-styled strained yogurt
1 heaping tablespoon of cocoa

1 heaping tablespoon of agave syrup

Mixing everything together
Fruit medley with loads of mango!

Probiotic Chocolate Yogurt Pudding for 2!

  1. I made something similar to this last night and then today searched online for anything similar. I'm with you...homemade chocolate Greek yogurt is SO good! I made mine with the same about of cocoa and sugar but with 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt (fat-free).
