Ingredients

  • ▢1 cup light whipped topping, divided
  • ▢⅓ cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • ▢¼ cup reduced fat cream cheese at room temperature (I used Neufchâtel)
  • ▢2-½ tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ▢2 packets zero calorie sweetener (I used Truvia)
  • ▢1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ▢Pinch of salt
  • ▢2 teaspoons mini chocolate chips
  • ▢¼ sheet graham cracker, finely crushed (1 small rectangle)

Instructions

  • In a medium mixing bowl, stir together ¾ cup whipped topping, yogurt, cream cheese, cocoa powder, sweetener, vanilla extract and salt until creamy and smooth.
  • Mix in 1 teaspoon mini chocolate chips until evenly distributed.
  • Divide the cheesecake mixture evenly between 6 small dessert glasses and top each dessert with a dollop of remaining whipped topping.
  • Sprinkle each dessert with graham cracker crumbs and remaining 1 teaspoon miniature chocolate chips.
  • Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.

Recipe Notes

You can make this easy dessert ahead, but it’s best to not assemble the dessert until you are ready to serve—otherwise you might end up with soggy graham cracker crumbs and crumbly, dried out whipped topping. Keep the chocolate mixture covered tightly with plastic wrap (or in an airtight container) in the refrigerator with your graham cracker crumbs in a ziploc bag and mini chocolate chips at the ready. When you are ready to serve, spoon the mixture into the glasses and top with whipped topping, mini chocolate chips and crushed graham crackers.

If you can’t find light cream cheese, you’ll probably be able to find Neufchâtel cheese, which is stocked in many American grocery stores. The traditional version of Neufchâtel, produced only in France, is one of the oldest kinds of cheese and resembles Brie or Camembert. However, the American version which is often placed right next to your regular Philadelphia Cream Cheese, has a higher moisture and lower milk fat content and can be substituted for most any recipe calling for cream cheese—and is the perfect replacement for those times you can’t find reduced-fat cream cheese.

There are many zero calorie sweeteners available today, including Splenda, Equal, Stevia, Monkfruit and Truvia—my personal favorite right now. Feel free to use your favorite in this recipe.

More topping ideas…

Fresh Fruit If the double dose of chocolate chips is a little too much, you can replace with a few fresh berries sprinkled on top. I think fresh blueberries, raspberries or chopped strawberries would all be delicious!

Chopped Nuts For the nut lover, try a sprinkling of chopped peanuts, almonds or walnuts. Get a little more nutty flavor by swapping out the vanilla for almond extract.
