If you’re looking for a healthy dessert that you can make last-minute, whether for yourself or for company, this chocolate yogurt pudding was meant for you! With Greek yogurt used in place of milk and maple syrup (which blends perfectly with the cocoa) in place of sugar, you won’t have to feel guilty about enjoying this treat. And we promise it’s just as delicious as traditional chocolate pudding. Be sure to share the recipe with friends and family on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and Twitter!
When you’re ready to make this delicious dessert, you only need to gather three ingredients: 1 cup of Cabot Lowfat Vanilla Bean Greek, 2 tablespoons of unsweetened chocolate cocoa powder, and 1 tablespoon of maple syrup (feel free to experiment with more or less to suit your taste).
Once you’ve gathered and measured these three ingredients, just blend them together until smooth and it’s ready to eat – just like that! How’s that for simple? Enjoy the chocolate yogurt on its own or serve with Original Pretzel Crisps for dipping. You can’t go wrong either way!

I made this before reading it here as part of my weight loss diet. I don't even have to use the vanilla yogurt because plain will also do. Maple syrup blends beautifully with cocoa, giving it a smooth consistency and not competing for flavor. Sometimes I rub a little granule or two of instant coffee into it for a more sophisticated flavor. I do not eat it with the pretzel chips, as they won't do for weight loss, but I can see how it can be a fun sweet and salty/crunchy and creamy snack for children!
I was looking for a quick sweet dessert and always have powdered chocolate handy. This fit the bill!
Tastes just like the other chocolate puddings, this one is truly "instant" just mix and eat, no waiting unlike the "instant" mixes that make you wait an hour or so.
Even better is that any variety of sweetener works equally well. I have tried stevia, sucralose and more and it always tastes great.
What a terrific idea for a last-minute dessert!!! Can't go wrong with chocolate......anything!!
Works great with a mashed banana substituted for the syrup. A little Trader Joe's Alcohol Free Vanilla adds a nice touch.
