Greek yogurt w/ dark chocolate, orange and pistachios

Healthy dessert

Yogurt, meh. 

That was how I felt before my freshman year roommate introduced me to Greek yogurt.  I remember trying a bite of her 2% Fage with honey and my world has never been the same (dramatic, I know). But as with most other things, you grow accustomed to it and the excitement fades. Life went on - day in day out, a Greek yogurt here and there. 


I discovered the Chobani store in Soho. 

I've already raved about it at length in a post here, where I recreated one of their yogurts topped with figs and pine nuts.  But this dark chocolate, orange and pistachio version will (I kid you not) Blow. Your. Mind. Yes, it takes a little more time than ripping off the lid of a prepackaged yogurt but trust me, the exponential pleasure you get from it is well worth those additional 5 minutes.

1. Scoop Greek yogurt into a bowl (Chobani vanilla or Fage 2% are both great options)
2. Take a slice of orange and break it up into bite size pieces 
3. Add a handful of pistachios (out of personal preference, I chopped the pistachios into smaller chunks)
4. Add chocolate chips (I used Hershey's semi sweet chocolate chips)
5. Finish with a drizzle of honey

This makes for a decadent weekend breakfast or a healthy dessert to satisfy your sweet tooth. 

So next time you find yourself reaching out for that tub of mint chocolate chip ice cream, try this instead. I promise, it is just as good and won't leave you feeling like a big fat blub afterwards. 


  1. love your posts! they are always so refreshing. gonna definitely try this with my next yogurt extravaganza. -Huili

    1. Aw thanks Huili :) Send me a picture and let me know how it goes when you do try it. Also if you're interested, raspberries + chocolate chips + honey is another winning combo as well!
