If you're ever wondering what to do with that little bit of plain yogurt left in the container, here's a sweet idea - add it to a brownie mix. But not just any brownie mix.
I first discovered No Pudge! Fudge Brownie Mix a few years ago. Requiring only the addition of yogurt in its preparation, I figured this was a handy item to have on hand for those desperate times when a quick, relatively healthy, chocolaty dessert was required.
No Pudge!, a staple in my pantry, comes in 4 flavors – original, cappuccino, raspberry and mint. My personal favorites are the original and cappuccino.
Since I had less than one cup's-worth of fat-free plain yogurt from Karoun Dairy, I figured this would be a good way to use it up.
It’s a cinch to make, too. Just add 2/3 cup plain, fat-free yogurt (the company suggests using vanilla yogurt), and a capful of vanilla extract to the dry mix. Mix until dry ingredients are moist. Pour the batter into an 8x8 inch pan sprayed with PAM. Bake in a preheated 350°F oven for 30 minutes. When cooled, cut into serving pieces. This will yield about 12 moist, fudge-like brownies.
Serve with frozen yogurt, if desired.
How easy is that?
