As promised in my last post, Light Coconut Cream Pie Mousse, I said that I would have a recipe to use up the rest of that Cool Whip.
Here it is!
You know when you are on Pinterest and you see a recipe that is supposed to be “light” or “skinny” or “diet” and it turns out it has more sugar, butter, or white flour than you planned on ingesting in one sitting?
That’s how this recipe came about.
I saw a good three or four recipes for light brownie batter dip that just included light cool whip and premade brownie mix from a box. In my opinion, brownie mix from a box does not seem light with its ton of sugar and white flour, nor does it seem healthy with all of its chemicals and preservatives.
So I came up with an actual skinny brownie batter dip.
Here’s the recipe.
1 regular sized container light plain or vanilla yogurt
1/2 container fat free or lite Cool Whip
4 packets Splenda
4 Tbs. cocoa powder
1/3 c. dark chocolate chips
Mix together the yogurt and the Cool Whip.
Add the chocolate chips.
Mix in the cocoa powder and Splenda.
Serving size is 2 Tbs. Serve with fruit. I like bananas and strawberries the best!
How this is so much healthier than other “skinny” brownie batter dips:
There is a ton less sugar because we are using Splenda, lite/fat free Cool Whip, and yogurt.
We use cocoa powder which has a ton of antioxidants such as flavanoids and polyphenols.
Dark chocolate can reduce blood pressure and fight disease.
Let me know what you guys think 🙂
