The Best Healthy Chocolate Cherry Yogurt Bowl – THM E

This five-ingredient Chocolate Cherry Yogurt Bowl is a delicious, sugar-free recipe. It’s great as a breakfast, lunch, snack, or dessert!

I’m always on the lookout for a quick and easy meal or snack idea, and my Chocolate Cherry Yogurt Bowl is just that!

I know you’ve heard this before, but it’s worth repeating: breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

You want to get your metabolism revving fairly quickly after you wake up.

The longer you wait to eat, the longer your body waits to burn calories: it’s still trying to conserve your energy.

If your mornings are anything like mine, then you’re BUSY from the time your feet hit the floor.

So grab something that’s quick to prepare and put your metabolism to work right along with you!

I love chocolate. And there are times of the month when I REALLY LOVE chocolate. You know what I’m talking about, right? ?

It was one of those mornings when I first put together this recipe.

Let’s just say I was really craving some chocolate!

Since then, a Chocolate Cherry Yogurt Bowl is one of my regular breakfasts or afternoon snacks. For those of you following the Trim Healthy Mama way of eating, this is an E meal.

Here is what you’ll need:

Ingredients:

Method:

Add all ingredients except the cherries to a mixing bowl.

Clear glass mixing bowl with Fage Greek yogurt, cocoa powder, sweetener, and vanilla to make a healthy breakfast.

I use Fage plain Greek yogurt because I love its texture!

Generally, Greek yogurt is thicker than other types of yogurt, but Fage is the absolute thickest.

That consistency makes this recipe feel decadent: it doesn’t feel like you’re eating something that’s fat-free!

It’s also got the best, smoothest flavor (to my taste buds, anyway).

Another benefit to Fage’s nonfat Greek yogurt? Only 7 grams of carbs.

Mix everything up until it’s nice and smooth. You want the cocoa powder to be fully blended.

Give it a taste and make sure it’s chocolaty enough and sweet enough for you.

But remember the cherries will add a fair amount of sweetness so you may not need to add as much sweetener as you think.

Next, go ahead and add the frozen cherries!

When selecting frozen cherries, be sure to check the carb count per serving.

It’s important that you don’t have more than 45 grams of carbohydrates in an E meal when following the THM way of eating.

The cherries I use have 24 net carbs per 1 cup serving. When you add that to the 7 grams of carbs in the Fage yogurt, I’m well within the 45-gram carb limit.

Some cherries are naturally sweeter so they have a higher carb count.

If your cherries have a higher carb count, you may need to adjust how many you add to your serving.

I love the way the yogurt sticks to the frozen cherries.

If you let it sit for a minute or two, the yogurt actually will crystallize and freeze a bit!

If you prefer, you can let your cherries thaw, but I’m usually in too much of a hurry in the mornings.

You can stop here and just devour your Chocolate Cherry Yogurt Bowl like this, or stir the cherries into the yogurt.

Can You Have Chocolate Cherry Yogurt Bowls for Dessert?

I think this recipe is delicious enough to enjoy as a dessert!

When I make them for dessert, I like layering the cherries on the bottom and topping them with the chocolate yogurt.

It makes such a pretty presentation in a stemless wine goblet!

Can You Use Different Fruit for These Breakfast Parfaits?

The only thing as delicious as chocolate and cherries is chocolate and berries!

You can substitute raspberries or strawberries for the cherries in this recipe for a delicious twist.

So there you have it: a decadent AND nutritious meal or snack that’s ready in minutes with less than 5 ingredients.
