Really Low-Fat Chocolate Frozen Yogurt

"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!"

Ready In:
24hrs 10mins


  • 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


  • In bowl or food processor, combine all ingredients until sugar dissolves.
  • 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.
  • Refrigerate until very cold -- at least four hours, or up to two days.
  • Transfer to ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's directions.

    Yup yup! Non-fat Greek yogurt is the way to go, just awesome! I use a mixture of Splenda and Stevia herb to sweeten, in place of the sugar. I portion this out and freeze it in tight containers for later. When I want some, (which is every night, ha) I take it out of the freezer about an hour before I will eat it. It softens up just fine.

    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 :-) <br/>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!


<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>
