Creamy Chocolate Yogurt Pudding

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

Cheese is made from plain yogurt overnight in the refrigerator and combined with cocoa and whipped topping in this creamy, chocolaty, chilled dessert.

INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):


  • YOGURT CHEESE: Use one 8-oz. container vanilla lowfat yogurt, no gelatin added. Line non-rusting colander or sieve with large piece of double thickness cheesecloth or large coffee filter; place colander over deep bowl. Spoon yogurt into prepared colander; cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate until liquid no longer drains from yogurt, about 24 hours. Remove yogurt from cheesecloth and place in separate bowl; discard liquid.
  • Stir together sugar and cocoa in small microwave-safe bowl. Add water; stir until well blended. Microwave at HIGH (100%) 45 seconds to 1 minute or until mixture boils. Stir well. Cool slightly; stir in vanilla.
  • Stir cocoa mixture into yogurt cheese in medium bowl; fold in whipped topping. Spoon into individual dessert dishes. Refrigerate about 1 hour. Garnish with whipped topping and fruit, if desired.
