Yogurt Coffee Ice Cream with Chocolate Chips

I don’t know about you but I can eat ice cream everyday. However, eating ice cream everyday is not without consequences, as I learned once, after gaining 15 pounds in just one month. Definitely not worth it. That is why I needed a solution, and this Yogurt Ice cream is a perfect one! It is low in calorie, high in protein and full of flavor. It is pretty much Greek yogurt sweetened with some chocolate chips and coffee. And this is a wining strategy – I can eat ice cream everyday and feel good about it.


Frozen yogurt is great for weight loss. It is literally low fat yogurt that you turn in an ice cream maker. And yogurt is always a great low calorie and high protein snack. Two scoops of this yogurt ice cream has only 112 calories and 12 grams of protein.


  • 3 cups non fat Greek yogurt Fage preferred
  • ½ cup sweetener of your choice (or more) I use sugar free syrups – Skinny Syrups and Mrs. Butterworth syrup
  • 1 tbs instant coffee
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 oz chopped dark chocolate
  • A day (24 hours) before you decide to make you ice cream, put your ice cream bowl in a freezer.
  • In a large bowl combine: yogurt, a sweetener ( I am using half of Mrs. Butterworth syrup and half of vanilla caramel skinny syrup) and vanilla extract. Mix it well.
  • Add instant coffee and stir well.
  • Taste the mixture to make sure that is sweet enough. Keep in mind that after freezing, the yogurt will lose some of the sweetness so make sure that the mixture is sweeter than you like before freezing it.
  • Prepare your ice cream maker. Remove the bowl from the freezer. Assemble all parts. Turn the ice cream machine on and start adding yogurt into the bowl while the bowl is turning.
  • Churn for 15 – 20 minutes
  • Add chopped chocolate and churn until incorporated
  • Transfer to a soring container
