Eating Clean but Still Craving Chocolate?

Even if you’ve been weaning yourself off of sugar and your cravings have started to subside, let’s face it there are days when you still just really want chocolate. I’m two years into my clean eating journey, and it is just that, a journey, where I try to stay on track 80% of the time and let myself have a little slack here and there. In my quest to keep that 80/20 balance I’m always trying out clean eating treats, and this one I had to share with you. It’s like a healthy chocolate pudding recipe and it’s so simple to make. There’s one ingredient you may not agree is totally “clean” but as a treat I promise it’s worth it, and if you’re trying out the keto plan it’s totally going to be a go-to for you! Ok here goes:

2 cups non-fat plain Greek yogurt

3 tbsp heavy whipping cream

3 tbsp raw honey

2 heaped tsps unsweetened cocoa powder

1 scoop chocolate Shakeology (or other chocolate protein powder)

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Simply put everything in a bowl and whisk with a hand mixer for 1-2 minutes until everything is creamy and lightly whipped (mine never gets super whipped – you would have to add more cream for that to happen, but the cream does cut the tartness of the yogurt and makes the texture amazing!).

Split into 6 servings – each one I’ve been counting as 1 red (for the yogurt and shakeology), 1 tsp for the honey, and 1 orange for the whipping cream (is it a healthy fat, technically, no, but for those of you who are in a maintenance phase like me, a serving of this as a treat is not going to throw you off track, and it will certainly tame that chocolate craving!).
