 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!

 I haven't tried the PB2 yet.  I was planning to in maintenance.  Its also one of those things that I can't find locally.

 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!

 NP.  I Don't know about a Smart&Final - I haven't seen one - I will have to look.

I saw the white chocolate syrup but haven't bought it yet.  I did think of that, I have made like 10 dozen white chocolate macadamia nut cookies for other people over the last two weeks.  NOt to mention my first foray into cupcakes.  So yeah - white chocolate has been on my mind - LOL.

I put off buying it until my next grocery shopping period - my torani collection is starting to look like a bar!

My husband had bought the PB extract at Wal-Mart to flavor his coffee. It is VERY STRONG. You have to literally use a drop and that's it. I sometimes add it to my protein shakes. Seriously, have to use a medicine dropper to get a tiny drop.
Anyhoos...thanks to all for the greek yogurt "recipes". I discovered carbmaster yogurts last week. Love em. I will try greek yogurts next. I have bought Winco's brand in the past. Love it!!!

 I just poured it dwn the drain and washed it out!  Too bad I didn't see this before.

I buy the Fage greek yogurt - Its a little bit more expensive but has the lowest calories for the protein.  Chobani is also good.  You have to read the labels on the greek yogurt - they are not all created equal.  Some only have 6 g of protein - the good ones have about 23 per cup.

Loving the yogurt recipes too and I love Fage it's my favorite.  I like to do savory things with it too like make my version of the Indian yogurt "salad" raita. I crush some cumin seeds and a pinch of cayenne, add a little chopped cucumbers and onion and sometimes a little cilantro...tastes great next to fish or chicken or especially steamed shrimp.

I like to put sugar free instant pudding mix in greek yogurt.  I love the thick consistency.  I've tried several flavors and add other things to it - a few slices of strawberries to the cheesecake flavor; a few blueberries to the lemon flavor; a TBLS or less of sliced almonds to the chocolate, to name a few.  I'll have to try the Torani syrup too.  Concocting an Almond Joy flavor sounds yummy!

My fave is Fage, SF cheesecake pudding powder, PB syrup.
Or use the Banana cream pudding powder with the PB syrup
