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! 😀
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 bad.
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
- 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
- In a bowl, combine the yogurt, sugar, vanilla, and cocoa powder.
- Refrigerate for at least one hour.
- Churn according to your ice cream maker’s instructions (I use the Kitchen-Aid attachment).
- In the last few minutes of churning, add in the chocolate chunks.
- Pour the frozen yogurt into a freezer safe container.
- Drop the peanut butter on the frozen yogurt.
- Carefully and barely mix in the peanut butter, so that there will be chunks.
- Freeze until ready to serve.
Peanut butter is a perfect addition!!
Um, my ice cream maker bowl is going in the freezer this minute!
This sounds amazing and just perfect for when you need a sweet ice cream hit!
I’m drooling too…at 6:30am! 🙂 Ha – this looks amazing!!!
This looks absolutely fantastic!! Yum!
I love using greek yogurt to make frozen yogurt! Yum!
Making tonight! I love stuff like this… do you think I could use fat free yogurt?
Also, the ice cream in the toaster oven cracks me up!
I bet that would be fine. 🙂 Can’t wait to hear how it turns out!
Oh my. You may be the person to single-handedly convince me to buy an ice cream attachment. DROOLING.
I LOVE this!! The dark color is amazing.
I don’t know how you are even having the time to make such gorgeous treats right now!!
This looks so good! Already pinned it for you
I have to try this and soon!
Yeah – totally drooling!!
Oh my, I WANT this right now. Awesome looking frozen yogurt!!!
It does look really cool in the loaf pan! 🙂 Sounds so good!
Oh yum, this looks so amazing! I’m always in for dessert when it involves chocolate and peanut butter 🙂
Hot damn, this looks delicious. I think it’s time to break out the ice cream maker for the season.
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. 🙂
Okay, wow! I want to have this right now!!
The container issues were worth it for the beautiful shots! 🙂
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!
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?
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! 🙂
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!
That looks so perfect!!!!
Omg, this looks incredible! I need to try this. I’ve been trying to stay away for sugar lately but this looks way too good to pass up. I love that you made it with yogurt 😀
*pulling out my ice cream maker right now* Holy cow this looks so good! I am going to have to make this!
Heavenly, I can’t get enough of chocolate and peanut butter together!
Amazing!!! I need to make frozen yogurt this summer, and I love the use of Greek Yogurt! I have TONS of that in my fridge right now!
I have to try this! I love anything with chocolate and peanut butter, and I love ice cream. This is so much easier than making a custard, and healthier too.
Now that is a beautiful thing!
I have been dying to try greek frozen yogurt and now I am thrilled to be able to make my own! Thank you!
Can I make this a couple I days in advanced or is it best if I make the day we want to eat it?
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. 🙂
Do you think I could use Splenda instead of sugar?
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! 😀
I just found this recipe on Pinterest. It looks like the answer to all my prayers! Can’t wait to try it!
Tart is right! I followed the recipe precisely but it isn’t good. Nobody in my family of 7 liked it. 🙁
Try fage 1% Greek it’s not as tangy and honey to cut the tang down as well
Has anyone tried it with honey Instead of the sugar?!?!
