Dark Chocolate Chunk & Peanut Butter Frozen Yogurt

I can’t even look at that first photo and not drool.

Can you blame me?

My favorite ice cream flavor of all time is Baskin Robin’s chocolate peanut butter. My mom and I would always get it when we went out for ice cream. It’s so rich and the chunks of peanut butter were always mind blowing!

So, as a healthier recreation of my favorite, we have this! :D

It was a little stubborn to get out of the container. I was dumb and put it into a metal loaf pan (to be pretty, of course), but you can’t microwave a metal container to make it easier to scoop. You have to put it in a toaster oven! Trust me when I say that we did this a few times…every time we were impatient and wanted some of this really┬ábad.

Other than the container malfunction, it was great…perfectly tart, rich, and delicious.

Dark Chocolate Chunk & Peanut Butter Frozen Yogurt

adapted from Healthy Food for Living

Ingredients

  • 3 cups 2% Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup Hershey’s Special Dark cocoa powder
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chunks
  • 1/2 cup natural creamy peanut butter

How-To

  1. In a bowl, combine the yogurt, sugar, vanilla, and cocoa powder.
  2. Refrigerate for at least one hour.
  3. Churn according to your ice cream maker’s instructions (I use the Kitchen-Aid attachment).
  4. In the last few minutes of churning, add in the chocolate chunks.
  5. Pour the frozen yogurt into a freezer safe container.
  6. Drop the peanut butter on the frozen yogurt.
  7. Carefully and barely mix in the peanut butter, so that there will be chunks.
  8. Freeze until ready to serve.

  1. Ooh! I’ve made the original version but it didn’t have the peanut butter, which obviously can only make it better! It was super yummy. And aww, ice cream in the oven. Maybe some parchment paper would help next time. :)

  2. Oh yay! I just bought an ice cream maker but all the frozen yogurt recipes I’ve found have half and half or cream! Totally negates the point of making frozen yogurt (never mind that I’m going to fill it with chocolate and peanut butter :p)! This just got put to the top of my list!

  3. I made this with regular cocoa powder and it was way too tangy for my taste. Would adding more sugar or honey next time help fix this? Or is there something else that might help?

    1. Yeah, that’s just the nature of making it with greek yogurt. I would try adding sugar to hide the tart yogurt taste. Good luck! :-)

  4. Genius! The bf is lactose so when we go get ice cream together, we have to find places that serve soy based ice creams. This makes a perfect alternative!

    1. You can definitely make it ahead of time. Just be sure to make it in a microwavable container just in case you need to thaw it a little. I’d also recommend leaving it at room temperature for a few minutes until you’re able to dig in. Greek yogurt gets quite hard when frozen. Enjoy…I hope you like it. Oh, and for extra sweetness, you may want to use the Vanilla Greek yogurt. :)

    1. I’m sure you could, but I’ve never tried it with anything other than sugar. If you give it a try, I’d love to know how it turns out! :D
