Everyone should know by now that I love chocolate. With the exception of the few months during my pregnancy that I couldn’t stand to look at anything sweet, I’ve practically had chocolate everyday of my life.
Yeah, I know…too much of one thing is bad. Trust me, I take it all in moderation, with the exception of desserts like this. Oh. My. Chocolate.
To balance the crazy amounts of desserts I make, my goal is always to make it a little less bad for us. In this case, I’m using my good ‘ole friend, Greek yogurt. And in my house, Chobani is the name of the game.
I use Chobani in loads of things that I make. Take for example, frozen yogurt:
Greek yogurt is a wonderful substitute for things like oil, butter, milk, sour cream, mayonaise, cream cheese, or even buttermilk!
So, there ya go. You know my secret!
In addition to a fabulously rich chocolate brownie recipe that’s made with Chobani, I also have an excellent giveaway for ya! You can thank me later.
