Greek Yogurt Recipes

Hi everyone, I was clearing out emails earlier today and ran across a note I got from a representative of Yoplait Greek Yogurt ---- you may remember that this spring I did a blog giveaway of a gift pack that contained some coupons for packages of this brand of yogurt. I wasn't particularly even a fan of yogurt when I did the blog giveaway, but I will tell you that I really like this stuff --- I keep a container of the strawberry and usually one of the honey vanilla in my fridge for a healthy snack. Lacey from the company sent me a couple of recipes, and I am sharing them with you (and I am dying to try out the chocolate mousse one---yummy!)

Dark Chocolate Mousse
Prep Time: 15 min
Start to Finish: 15 min

1 1/2 cups skim milk
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1 box (4-serving size) chocolate instant pudding and pie filling mix
1 container (6 oz) Yoplait® Greek Fat Free honey vanilla yogurt
1 1/2 cups frozen (thawed) reduced-fat whipped topping
1 1/2 cups fresh raspberries

1. In small saucepan, combine 1/4 cup milk and chocolate chips. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is well blended. 2. In medium bowl, combine 1 1/4 cups milk and pudding mix. Beat with wire whisk for 1 to 2 minutes or until mixture is well blended and thickened; stir in yogurt. 3 Blend melted chocolate into pudding mixture; fold in whipped topping. Spoon into individual dessert dishes. Top each serving with additional whipped topping and raspberries. Serve immediately or refrigerate until serving time. Store covered in refrigerator.
