This is as close to nonfat as chocolate frozen yogurt can get. If you're on Weight Watchers (or any other weight-management program) and you're dying for chocolate, this is a reasonable choice. And it's yummy!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 quart nonfat yogurt (plain, nonfat, Greek strained yogurt makes it really rich)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 12 cup unsweetened Dutch-processed cocoa powder
  • 18 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. In bowl or food processor, combine all ingredients until sugar dissolves.
  2. Note: You can start with less sugar, and then just add sugar to taste until it's as sweet as you want it to be.
  3. Refrigerate until very cold -- at least four hours, or up to two days.
  4. Transfer to ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's directions.

I used Fage from Costco and it was a little too tangy for my taste buds. Next time I may try reducing the yogurt some and replacing with milk.

This was very good - I added nuts and froze as individual popsicles. Nice treat on a hot summer's nite!

I highly recommend using non-fat non-sugar vanilla yoghurt, that way you don't have to add sugar to the recipe since the vanilla yoghurt is quite sweet :-)
This is My favourite frozen yoghurt recipe, tastes just like a nice rich chocolaty ice cream! But the great thing about is that there is neither chocolate nor cream in this recipe!
