  1. This has a rich chocolate flavor, and the tanginess of the yogurt comes through and balances out the sweetness. I used Recipe #71032, which I make all the time anyway. We topped our frozen yogurt with chopped pecans and sliced bananas. It would be good with a warm berry sauce, too! Thanks, KLHquilts!


<p>My husband and I live in Cambridge MA with our dog Archie. <br /> <br />I used to be a mediocre cook, with little interest in cooking ... then I joined Weight Watchers in Oct. 2006. I finally realized that to maintain my weight, I needed to find lots of extremely yummy, healthy foods that I enjoyed eating -- and the best way to do that is to learn to cook, and to learn to enjoy cooking. This web site has been 95% responsible for getting me there! <br /> <br />As of Oct. 2007, I am a lifetime member of Weight Watchers, having lost 70 pounds and weighing less than I've ever weighed as an adult. I owe a lot of it to the recipes I've found here! <br /> <br />Re: rating recipes -- I only give out five and four stars, and very occasionally three stars. I don't see any point in giving lower scores; I can't be sure a recipe has turned out badly because of something I've done. Besides, even if I don't like it, the next person might -- and if they see a one-star review, they'll never bother to try it. So I review the ones I've loved, and don't say anything about the ones that didn't work for me. <br /> <br />Hooray for vegetables! <br /> <br />. <br /> <br /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /> <br /><img src= alt= /> <br /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></p>
