Wonderfully rich frozen yogurt. The taste is like chocolate cream pie filling with a bit of tang from the yogurt. Lots of calcium, but low in fat and calories - a sweet treat you can feel good about!

After reading the reviews for this recipe I decided to try it anyway. I think those who didn't have success are inexperienced cooks who don't understand cornstarch. Anyway, I used 2-3 Tablespoons of cornstarch, not teaspoons. 1/4 c. sugar, because the choc. chips are so sweet. I added 3 heaping tablespoons of Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa, Dutch process. Oh, my, what a great ingredient! You have to cook the milk concoction til it boils, which means you have to use some heat to get it to thicken, which it does no problem if you use enough cornstarch and enough heat. My family loves this recipe and I think next time I'll try adding 1/4 peanut butter or a few peppermint sticks for a change. Excellent ice cream. Read More

This was VERY sweet. I love sweet stuff but this was just too much. I would halve the sugar next time. Also I did 2 tablespoons cornstarch which thickened it up very well. Read More

I used Truvia sweetener and nonfat GREEK yogurt. I took another reviewer's suggestion and added three tablespoons of dutch process chocolate. I froze this, then scooped it out and ran it through the blender, then re-froze. That's something I learned to do with homemade frozen yogurt to decrease the ice crystals and make for a smoother end product. Wow oh wow, this was incredible! Everyone loved this, even my froyo hating husband. This recipe will be made a lot this summer, I can tell you that! Read More

This is delicious! I used DANNON light vanilla yogurt with regular evaporated milk ( I figured the fat content would even itself out) and just a couple of tbs of sugar because the yogurt was already flavored - mmmm! I also just poured the recipe into my popsicle molds and popped them into the freezer and ended up with chocolate cheesecake flavored fudgesicles! Highly recommended actually nutritious and ready in no time at all! Read More

This was great! The first time I used vanilla yogurt and 3 T. sugar and 2 T. cornstarch to thicken. I added a shot (1oz) of bourbon which smoothed things out and added a yummy flavor. The second time I used plain yogurt and aspartame packets instead of sugar (18 packets = 3/4 c sugar) and it was still delicious. A really good rich low fat recipe. It benefits from the addition of a spoonful of cocoa powder to enhance the chocolate flavor. Read More

I used sweetened condensed milk (didn't have evap milk) 1 cup yogurt 3 tbs of cocoa and 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. Omitted the sugar and the cornstarch because the condensed milk was sweet enough and thick enough. Using cornstarch to thicken the low-fat milk though is a really great idea and one I will probably use in the future:) Read More

This was delicious! Smooth creamy and chocolatey with a minor background tanginess from the yogurt. Per other reviews I used a tablespoon of corn starch and added a tablespoon of unsweetened dutched cocoa powder. I combined these with 1/2 cup sugar in a saucepan with the evaporated milk and brought it to a boil stirring regularly. After boiling for a couple of minutes it thickened up nicely. Then I reduced the heat to low and added the chocolate chips. I made sure to use good-quality chocolate (Green Black brand cocoa and Ghirardelli chocolate chips). I also used vanilla low-fat yogurt and omitted the vanilla since that's what I had on hand. The end result was creamy thick and chocolatey. It was great right out of the ice cream maker (soft serve consistency) and frozen overnight (hard pack consistency). Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Made exactly as stated. Was a little bitter probably due to the bittersweet chocolate. Still good. Really sweet - I think you could cut back on the sugar by 1/4 C. Next time I might try dark chocolate rather than bittersweet and cutting back on the sugar accordingly. Read More

Love love love! I added a tablespoon of cocoa powder following other reviewers. I also used vanilla yogurt and omitted the vanilla extract. I also didn't have an ice cream maker so I froze it in a metal bowl whisking it every 45 minutes or so until it was the consistency of soft serve then I just let it freeze. I'll make this again for sure! Read More

I didn't have the evaporated milk so I used half heavy cream and half milk. I also reduced the sugar to about half a cup. I agree that the key is to properly thicken the mixture by bringing it to a boil. I had no issues with this setting up at all. It thickened well and produced a very nice product that my family wants me to make again. I think I'd keep using the cream/milk mixture adn would skip the cornstarch part altogether as it left a slightly funky texture on the tongue. Read More
