Cocoa Greek Yogurt {Gluten Free, Low Calorie}

ImageThe App ‘Lose It’ is a lifesaver. Seriously. I have been using this app on my phone for the past week and it really helps me track my calorie intake.

Since, I am trying to eat within a set number limit, I have been experimenting with food in a different way. Taking those pesky calories into consideration. Strictly. Pain – but it’s a science.

This sweet little hunger saver gives you a hint of chocolate – for those of you who have a sweet tooth. The fresh strawberries provide a sweet, tart taste as well.

You will need: 1/2 cup 0% fat Greek yogurt (70 calories), 1 tbsp. cocoa powder (30 calories) and 3 big chopped up strawberries (13 calories). 

All you have to do is mix in the cocoa powder into the yogurt. It may take a little more time than you think because the powder is chalky and takes time to gel. I also mixed in the berries – so the chocolate goodness covered them. Left one on top for aesthetics.

You can eat this for a little snack or a yummy dessert after dinner. All for 113 calories. Remember, you can always add honey or a pinch of sugar if this is too bitter for your taste.
