Cho-Yo and Chocolate Goji Bars

Posted Mar 05 2010 5:14pm

I know I’ve mentioned it thousands of times on the blog, and now I will show you how I make the infamous Chobani Fro-Yo (Or Cho-Yo as I like to call it). Now the ingredients are going to vary depending on what you want in the cho-yo, but for the most part everything else will be the same.

First I start with a semi-frozen Chobani Greek yogurt. Today I chose the plain flavor because it was all I had left. I don’t like the yogurt to be rock solid because it won’t blend well so about 1-2 hrs in the freezer is really all it needs.

Next, add the Chobani , and any other mix-ins you desire to the food processor. In my case I wanted chocolate so I added 2 heaping Tbs of Raw Organic Cocoa powder, Mesquite, Agave, and a few frozen blueberries and blackberries for good measure. ;-)

Start spinning. Mix in the food processor until rich and creamy.

Sometimes if the yogurt is too frozen and the food processor is having a hard time, I will add a little almond milk (or whatever milk you prefer), and then spin some more until creamy.

Last, but not least, top with your favorite toppings or eat by itself and Enjoy!!! The creamy, fruity, chocolate yogurt is just amazing. I would rather eat this over regular ice cream now, and it packs in the protein. SO GOOD and basically fool proof.

Try these other delicious mix-ins:

  • Pumpkin
  • Carob Powder
  • Cacao Nibs
  • Nut Butter (Try Peanut Butter & Co. Dark Chocolate Dreams for Pure Decadence)
  • Any type of frozen fruit

There are endless possibilities. I would love to hear what some of you come up with. Tell me what your favorite Cho-Yo mix ins are.

Here is another great easy peasy dessert for you to try. Dark Chocolate Goji Berry Bars with sea salt. Way back in December I received a Vosges dark chocolate goji bar from HEAB in my blogger secret santa package. Not being familiar with Vosges , I really had no idea what to expect. HOLY CHOCOLATE MOLY!!!! This was by far some of the best chocolate that has ever touched my lips. Before I knew it the entire bar was gone, and I was crying for more. Heather-thank you for opening my eyes to the BEST chocolate around. It was to. die. for.

However, when I found out how much the bars cost at the grocery store($8 bucks a bar), I decided to re-create it myself. The entire process took a total of 10 minutes from start to finish.

First fill up a pot with about 2-3 inches of water and place it on the stove on high heat. Stick a glass mixing bowl on top of the pot, but make sure the bowl does not touch the water. Next, add the chocolate of your choice to the bowl. In my case, I used organic dark chocolate bars that I broke up into small pieces of easy melting.

Keep stirring the chocolate until it is melted and then add your goji berries. The amount of goji berries you add is really up to you depending on what you like. In my case I added 1 Cup of goji goodness.

Stir until all goji’s are covered, and then transfer the chocolate to a baking sheet lined with wax paper. Once the mixture is on the baking sheet, flatten it out with a spoon or cake spatula.

The last step is to sprinkle with sea salt on top once the chocolate has cooled a little, but is still not completely solid. I used Himalayan sea salt since it is my favorite. I just love the combination of sea salt on chocolate. Feel free to omit this step if you prefer your chocolate with out the hint of salt.

Then just stick the chocolate in the fridge until solid. How easy was that?

Try the recipes for yourself, and tell me what you think!!! I will be back soon with a more regular posting schedule-things have just been so crazy, and I’m working on some fun new things for the blog. Have a great Weekend!!!!
