About this deal

Different brands of Greek yogurts contain different strains and different levels of active probiotics depending on how the yogurt is processed. Some brands add additional probiotics to their products including for potential added health benefits. Take a look at the product label and look for brands that say "live active cultures". Everything you want to know to make a perfect homemade gelato with the ice cream maker Learn more The origin of stracciatella ice cream flavor Instead of scraping the leftover chocolate I like to add hot water or coffee to the mug and make nice chocolate coffee or hot chocolate. A dash or more heavy cream, and a tasty and warming drink is ready. Today, the city of Bergamo appreciates the origin of the stracciatella gelato: the ice cream parlors of the city have produced a certificate of originality of the stracciatella ice cream, with guidelines for its production. The ingredients of the stracciatella are sugar, whipping cream and whole milk; plus the chocolate flakes, which must contain at least 58% cocoa. The original stracciatella ice cream recipe from Bergamo does not contain eggs.

At first I doubted that adding just melted chocolate to the yogurt might not bring the best results. The chocolate chips or shavings should be melt-in-your-mouth type. I thought that pure melted chocolate makes too hard chips and you hardly taste them. Therefore, in my first experiment I melted equal amounts of 100% chocolate and organic extra virgin coconut oil. I go as dark as I can with the chocolate. I once did some light internet research on which chocolates were the most “healthful.” Out of the handful of “healthy” dark chocolates that seemed to make the cut, Godiva and Ghirardeli 86% Cacao are the most accessible to me, so that's what I use in this recipe. You can use 1-2 squares (which is about .6 – 1.2 ounces) depending on your mood. I usually eat one square to about 1/2 – 3/4 cup yogurt (but, FYI, I used two squares to 3/4 cup in these photos to make the chocolate more visible).If you enjoy the flavor of full-fat Greek yogurt and find it is more satisfying, then go for it! Just be mindful of your total saturated fat intake from your overall diet. To make flavors even richer and smoother, you can add some whipped cream. Or decorate the servings with nice dollops of whipped cream. What should you know before you hit that overwhelming dairy aisle? Here’s a rundown of your yogurt options.

Anyway, melting the chocolate is not that big thing, it basically melts by itself. It just needs stirring every now and then. And third, you can control the size of the chocolate chips by the speed of mixing. The faster you mix the melted chocolate and the yogurt, the smaller chocolate chips you get. And vice versa.If you're looking for a Greek yogurt that is free of antibiotics, hormones, GMOs, and additives, and has stricter standards for how cows are raised, a certified 100% grass-fed organic product like Maple Hill Creamery's Whole Milk Greek yogurt is a fantastic option. Research shows that grass-fed milk has higher levels of beneficial omega-3 fatty acids than typical corn and grain-fed dairy. Maple Hill Creamery's 100% Grass-Fed Greek Yogurt is ultra-creamy and has the highest standards when it comes to quality. It's USDA-certified organic and PCO-certified grass-fed.

If you want to make things really simple, you can use just 3 ingredients: 100% chocolate, vanilla stevia or unflavored stevia and yogurt. Melt the chocolate and add there 10 drops stevia. Mix until well mixed. Add 30–40 drops stevia to the yogurt. Mix the chocolate and the yogurt as directed. Add more stevia or other sweetener if needed. You might wonder why don’t I simply add ready chocolate shavings or grated chocolate to the yogurt, but rather melt the chocolate first. First of all, melting the chocolate is absolutely funnier method. Seeing the melted chocolate to solidify into tiny chips or shavings is simply fun. Try it with your kids! Always look at the nutrition facts label when choosing Greek yogurt, as some products contain a lot of added sugar. It's important to note that plain (unsweetened) Greek yogurt contains a few grams of natural milk sugar, which is called lactose. Aim to choose a product with less than 10 grams of total sugar per serving and limited added sugar. You can also combine a Greek yogurt that is higher in added sugar with a plain variety to make your own lightly sweetened blend.

If you are a friend of mint chocolate flavor, you can add finely chopped mint leaves to the yogurt, or some peppermint flavor. Each serving contains 11 grams of sugar and 8 grams of protein. If you prefer a bit more taste, Maple Hill Creamery also offers a delicious vanilla flavor that's made with real vanilla beans and organic lemon juice. I usually melt chocolate in a water bath. I boil some water in a water kettle and pour the boiling water into a saucepan. Then I put the chopped chocolate in a heatproof mug and put the mug in the saucepan with hot water. I let it stand for few minutes stirring the chocolate occasionally. It doesn’t take long before the chocolate is melted. Just be careful not to let any water into the chocolate, otherwise it forms an ugly lump and you have to start everything from scratch. For smooth chocolate yogurt you can do like I did in my first experiment: simply melt 1 oz (30 g) 100% chocolate and 1 oz (30 g) organic extra virgin coconut oil. Add the stevia. Mix the melted mixture in the yogurt, where you have added the erythritol, stevia and vanilla extract.

It’s good to keep the yogurt as cold as possible. Then the melted chocolate for sure solidifies into tiny chips and doesn’t dissolve in the yogurt. The flavors get even better if you let the ready yogurt stand in the fridge for few hours or overnight.
