Chocolate Peanut Butter Greek Yogurt

Chocolate Peanut Butter Greek Yogurt--powdered peanut butter is the secret

I used to eat a miniature Reese’s peanut butter cup every single day, melted on top of my favorite chocolate fudge fiber bar. That questionable habit lasted a couple of years before it wore off. Now I have a different peanut butter-related vice. The idea came from the comment section of one of my homemade Greek yogurt posts.

A reader suggested adding powdered peanut butter to unflavored Greek yogurt. Turns out it mixes into yogurt much more easily than real peanut butter, which can be difficult to combine with yogurt without affecting the texture. My favorite brand and flavor of powdered peanut butter is PB2 with premium chocolate (found it at Target but also available online).

I’m not saying this idea is for everybody. But for yogurt makers like myself and many of my readers, we’re continually looking for new ways to eat it and flavor it. This is my latest favorite.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Greek Yogurt-a powdered peanut butter that mixes easily with yogurt

No recipe needed. Just add about a tablespoon of powdered peanut butter to a half-cup of yogurt–Greek yogurt in my case. If you have a sweet tooth, stir in a little sweetener e.g. sugar, honey, Stevia, or whatever is your fave. Sprinkle a few slivers of semi-sweet or dark chocolate on top if you like.

Thanks for the tip! I just bought a jar of PB2 and was going to use in in my homemade yogurt as well! Right now I have been using in in Smoothies, it’s delicious! And thank you I learned some great tips from you on making yogurt! You have a Beautiful Blog!

Like Karen, I’m not a fan of yogurt but a chocolate one like this one does look pretty darn tempting!

I think you could put peanut butter and chocolate on just about anything and it would be delicious. 🙂 I’ve had PB2 but not the chocolate version- it’s now on my grocery list though I know I’ll have to go into town to get it! I still haven’t made my own yogurt, but I’m going to try this with my store bought variety. Yum! 🙂

This is also my favorite new treat with a few additions. I use the regular PB2 (I didn’t know there was a chocolate version,) in lite vanilla greek yogurt. I do add the packet of sweetner, about 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract and instead of the chocolate shavings, I add a tablespoon of carob chips. One more addition – a sprinkling of sea salt…not much, but a sprinkle. I find yogurt to have a bit of a flat taste without it. For me, this is a real treat. I ate it at Thanksgiving instead of a piece of pumpkin pie! 🙂 Sometimes I strain the greek yogurt through a coffee filter if it’s a little looser in consistency than I want. Other brands are “stiff” enough.

This is my morning favorite (without the slivers of chocolate) and I dip my apple into it. Can’t wait to try the chocolate!

I think you just might make me a yogurt fan yet!
