Brownie Batter Yogurt

Good morning! 

For everyone who has never heard of a Shamrock Shake, they’re apparently on their way to a McDonald’s near you.  But don’t bother, just make my lightened up version instead. :)

My morning has already been great – I woke up starving so actually ate a light meal before leaving the house (I usually bring breakfast to work).

TJ’s low carb tortilla, 2 egg whites, avocado (perfectly ripe), and reduced fat sharp cheddar.  Eggs and avocado are a match made in heaven.

I knew this would only last me a couple of hours, so I got creative with a yogurt based snack for before lunch.

  • 6 oz plain greek yogurt (Chobani)
  • 4 drops vanilla stevia
  • 2 Tbsp Almond Meal
  • 1 Tbsp dark chocolate cocoa powder
  • 1 Tbsp almond milk

After mixing, I tasted it before adding strawberries – it was like a cross between raw brownie batter, chocolate cheesecake, and the most decadent chocolate mousse I’ve ever tasted.

    “Batter” of any kind is always a good idea. :)

    I do one like that a lot with protein and chia for a post-workout snack. Good call with the strawberries on top!

    I like your idea of adding almond meal to your yogurt…I’ve never tried that before but definitely will!

    Wow, you definitely started your day with delicious eats! Egg white tortilla-cheese wraps have actually been my go-to breakfast this week. I bet that adding avocado would make them even better!

    Greek yogurt concoctions that taste like dessert are a healthy-eating dream, aren’t they? Love the brownie batter idea!
