Recently a guest visiting Captain Jackson’s Historic Chocolate Shop mentioned to me that her husband Kevin Mills had written a recipe book in collaboration with his mother Nancy for the “unrepentant chocoholics” entitled Chocolate on the Brain. I found the book at my local library, and after reading the back cover I was hooked. Finally someone understands my addiction to chocolate!
“This book is for those poor souls enslaved by chocolate, who sit at work and think about chocolate, who hatch plots to get other people’s chocolate, who buy their loved ones gifts of chocolate only to consume them themselves.” -Kevin Mills
There are many, many wonderful recipes that can be either prepared or made in less than a half an hour for those who crave chocolate and want it now! I will share with you recipes such as Chocolate Lava Cookies and Peachy Chocolate Chip Crisp that I think will be perfected when made with American Heritage Chocolate.
Today I thought I would try the creamy chocolate yogurt recipe, made with maple syrup and cocoa powder, ready to eat in 10 minutes.
Yogurt is one of the oldest and most popular fermented foods; the word yogurt comes from Turkey and refers to a tart thick milk. It can be found in nearly every culture that has kept animals for milk and it was likely discovered in similar ways in each region.
Instead of using cocoa powder, sugar and vanilla, I’ll be adding American Heritage Chocolate Powder Drink and just as we used the food processor for the Avocado Chocolate Pudding, this recipe also requires the use of a food processor or blender.
Creamy Chocolate Yogurt with American Heritage Chocolate
Equipment: food processor or blender
Prep Time: 10 minutes (very easy)
1 cup cottage cheese
1 cup plain yogurt
1 cup of American Heritage Chocolate Drink
1/2 cup maple syrup
Pour American Heritage Chocolate Powder Drink into a microwave safe bowl and melt in the microwave on high for 2 minutes, remove and stir until creamy. Add maple syrup to the chocolate mixture and stir until well blended.
Combine all ingredients in food processor or blender and process for about 1 to 2 minute or until mixture is smooth. Pour into individual bowls or one serving bowl. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate until needed. Mix in some granola or top with chocolate nibs.
I was astonished how quickly the recipe came together and how delicious it is. The chocolate yogurt is light and creamy and the taste is just rich enough to satisfy that Unrepentant Chocoholic.
