cookie dough greek yogurt

It’s pretty hard trying to be healthy when you’re a recovering sweets-aholic. I’ve been almost 100% good over the past few months, but to be perfectly honest, most days I find myself daydreaming about giant slices of dark, dreamy, moist, chocolate cake with chocolate frosting (seriously- have a look at my pinterest boards…). So what’s a girl to do when those (really, really) bad cravings hit?? Recipes like this one save my life!

I love Greek yogurt anyway, but add in smooth peanut butter, vanilla, and mini chocolate chips, and mama’s HAPPY, y’all! I really love this little trick- it satisfies even my worst cravings and helps keep me on track. Plus, the added protein in my diet helps me burn fat and stay satisfied longer! Double win!

  4. My Aunt nearly died of complications due to type II diabetes two months ago, my father has it and my father in law was just diagnosed so I’ve been REALLY trying to curb my intake of sweets as to be a good role model to my beautiful little girls but I must say its been a struggle. My “treat” has been frozen pitted cherries but sometimes I need something more. I tried this recipe today and it hit the spot! Thanks Amy! You have this ability of posting things just when I need it most:)

  5. I have been eating a lot of yogurt lately, trying to stay healthy with all of those probiotics. I usually put maple syrup on plain yogurt. Now I HAVE to try your recipe. Yum!
