I have posted and blogged about the virtues of cacao nibs. So I'm going to finish up this week with my favorite concoction of the week: Chocolate Yogurt.
Absolutely brilliant texture! It actually gets thicker and shiny. I prefer
Mix 1 cup Chobani plain Non-Fat Greek Yogurt, 1 T honey, 1/2 T - 1 T powdered cocoa to taste. Stir well. It's even better if you cover and refrigerate overnight. If you MUST have it sweeter, add another teaspoon or two of honey.
Add sliced strawberries for breakfast. Add your favorite nuts. I think it's better than mousse. Have it for a snack. Use for frosting on a cupcake or cake, or a filling for a chocolate pie (just double the amounts and divide into 6 -8 servings. Or keep it simple and serve with a chocolate wafer.
And finally, for that bit of crunchiness, add a tablespoon or two of cacao nibs! ; )
And just in case you missed it in the challenge announcement, I have found a new product: cacao nibs. Bitter snack. Don't try them if you think you want some milk chocolate. But if you think you just need some chocolate and something crunchy, and have a little money to try something new, then give these a try.
If you want something sweet, then try the rounds of flavored Mexican chocolate.
I find either product very satisfying as far as filling my desire for chocolate with a very small amount. And there is also very little sweetener in the product.
I'm thinking the nibs would be interesting in a trail mix combination like nibs, almonds, and a tart, dried cherry.
