I’m always on the lookout for healthy-yet-yummy snacks or desserts for us. I don’t usually buy packaged items at the grocery store, but whenever we pass the Jell-O section at the grocery store Josiah says “jelly! jelly!” (he can’t seem to get the “o” on the end). I sometimes let them pick one of the sugar-free varieties, and last week we picked one out and I got some whipping cream to make fresh whipped cream (though I almost got lazy and bought Cool Whip).
We had some leftover whipped cream after using up the Jell-O and then I remembered a recipe for Chocolate Delight Yogurt that I had pinned a while ago while on the lookout for yogurt ideas. It’s just one recipe among a slew of other yummy yogurt concoctions like Red Grapes with Nut Butter Yogurt Dip, Banana Nut Butter Honey Yogurt, Banana Split Yogurt and Mint Chocolate Chip Yogurt.
So I mixed some homemade yogurt with homemade chocolate syrup then folded in the leftover whipped cream (in a 1:1 ratio with the yogurt – probably a cup or so of each). The night before I made a batch of chocolate granola (using the greater amount of oats and less sweetener), which I sprinkled on top of the yogurt – soooo goooo! The kiddos and I gobbed it all up.
