Description

Peppermint Chocolate Whipped Greek Yogurt is a dark chocolate lover’s dream – naturally sweetened with maple syrup, rich and chocolatey to hit those cravings, and packed with 7 grams of protein per serving from the Greek yogurt!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 + 1/2 cups plain Greek yogurt (2% or whole fat)
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 34 tablespoons maple syrup (3 for normal sweetness, 4 if you like it sweeter)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder (Dutch-process or natural)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. Add all ingredients except cocoa powder and salt to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, or use a hand mixer.
  2. Begin mixing on low for about 20 seconds, until the liquid cream begins to mix into the yogurt. Slowly increase power to the highest speed.
  3. After about 2 minutes of whisking, reduce speed and shut off mixer. Use a spatula to give the yogurt a quick mix – push down the sides of the bowl and make sure the very bottom is mixed in. Continue mixing for another 2 minutes, or until peaks form when the whisk is removed. The peaks will not be super stiff, but will still stand up.
  4. Add the cocoa powder to the bowl. Mix on low-medium until the cocoa powder is mixed in. Remove the bowl from the stand mixer and give it a quick stir by hand to mix completely.
  5. It’s ready! Eat now, or store in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 5 days. The whipped yogurt will thicken in the fridge and will have a more mousse-like texture after being in the fridge overnight.
