 OK, so this weekend I posted about my Chocolate Greek Yogurt experiment - YUMMY.

Today I continued.  Again I started with a base of 1 cup of greek yogurt.  I added 1 tablespoon of Hersheys Cocoa.  I also added about 3 tablespoons of Torani Almond flavored syrup and some splenda to sweeten it up.

I should have added more - the almond taste was subtle and overpowered by the chocolate.  I think next time I will see if I can add some coconut flavored syrup to it as well to try and make an Almond Joy Greek Yogurt.  Extra YUM.

On the down side - I couldn't find any of the peanut butter syrup loocally.  I tried some Peanut Butter extract from WalMart.  REVOLTING It tasted like I added lighter fluid.  I tried this with Chicken to go for an sesame peanut flavored chicken for dinner last night.  INEDIBLE - don't try this one at home kiddies.

FYI - if you go to the Torani Syrup website you can order any flavor online if you can't find it locally.  May be a little more expensive, but depends on how badly you want PB!  Thanks for the recipes too.

 Have you tried the PB2?  Its my favorite and the gym across from our house just started selling it :)

I was not a greek yogurt fan, but you inspired me to try it again.  I took a container of Dannon Oikos plain and added 1/2 scoop of chocolate protein powder and 2 Splenda - FANTASTIC!  It ended up being around 160 calories with 30 grams of protein :)

Thanks - keep the yogurt experiments coming!

 At the rate you are losing, you have to be close to goal, right?!?!  Hey - have you seen econtiff around here lately?  Just noticed I haven't seen her on MFP or the forums lately.

 I am 12 pounds out! And was slightly bummed, I have put on about a pound of water in the last day, BOO.  My next mini goal is to get to a normal BMI and I am 2.1 lbs away from that.  Oh well, this week!

I haven't heard from Tiff lately.  I had e-mailed her but didn't see anything back.  I hope she's OK.

 I love Greek yogurt plain, but that chocolate sounds like a nice "desert"!

Do you have a Smart & Final in TN? Alison found the PB syrup there.
I still have to get hazelnut to try your Nutella creation but I already have chocolate & coconut so I think I will try the Almond Joy greek yogurt.
Let us know if you think of a yummy combo that includes white chocolate. I bought that flavor recently but haven't tried it yet.
Love these posts, thank you!
