Fitness Friday: Chocolate & Peanut Butter Yogurt

If there is one thing I have discovered over the last two years is that it is so difficult to stay away from the sweets and treats during the holidays.  From workplace potlucks to family gatherings temptations galore surround us at every trip to the buffet.

The average American puts on 10-12 pounds each year between Thanksgiving and the New Year, so my goal is not to be a part of that statistic this year!

To help curb my own serious sweet tooth and stay focused on a healthy lifestyle, I have put together this delicious Greek yogurt snack that has become one of my favorite treats this holiday season.  With four simple ingredients & two minutes of your time you can’t make any excuses to it taking too long to prepare!

Chocolate and Peanut Butter Greek Yogurt

INGREDIENTS:

4 ounces Chobani non-fat Greek yogurt (plain)

1 Tablespoon natural peanut butter (creamy)

1 Tablespoon local organic honey

1 Tablespoon Enjoy Life mini chocolate chips (no dairy or soy)

PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER:

Stir together the Greek yogurt, peanut butter and honey; Top with the mini chocolate chips and you’re all set!

There are several things I love about this sweet treat.  First, it’s so very easy to assemble.  Secondly, it is extremely filling and with 16 grams of protein it also makes a great post workout recovery snack.  And finally, make several servings of it, serve it up in pretty little bowls and you have a healthy treat for everyone looking to eat a little better over the holidays!

Look out for a few other healthy treats over the next several days!

As the year is winding down it’s a great time to get an early start on a healthy lifestyle for the New Year!
