Nate and I have been obsessing over Game of Thrones lately. Once or twice a week a new DVD of episodes comes in from Netflix, and we celebrate with TV dinner and some Greek yogurt bon bons on the couch.

I know, dinner on the couch doesn't exactly conjure up images of marital bonding or supreme health, but we do things a bit differently. Nate has this adorably annoying tendency to pause episodes and pose questions with urgency as if our marriage depends on my answers. He wants to know how – if we were hypothetically in the situation of the TV characters – we might play things out. Although I can't envision any circumstances that would lead to us ever being in the middle of a Chronicles of Narnia-meets-The Tudors mystical land of throne lineage warfare, it's fun to imagine and it's our own version of Conversation Starters.

Greek Yogurt Bon Bons
  • 1 tub Greek frozen yogurt
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
  • 3 Tbsp coconut oil
  1. Use a melon baller to scoop small balls of the greek frozen yogurt onto parchment paper set on a baking sheet. Freeze approximately 30 minutes to firm.
  2. Melt chocolate and coconut oil together in the microwave on high approximately 3 minutes, stirring vigorously every 20 seconds to keep from burning.
  3. Roll the balls individually into the chocolate and set back on the parchment paper to dry.
  4. Serve immediately.

Greek Yogurt Bon Bons from Someday I'll Learn

Nate and I used to enjoy little ice cream bon bons with late-night TV sessions (before the kids came along) and I thought I'd try my hand at a healthier version of those since we're trying to lose weight but also don't want to lead totally boring lives that are barren of bon bons!

I used a melon-baller to scoop out tiny scoops of the frozen yogurt onto a piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet.

The Greek yogurt that I got came in a package of three little snack cups, and it made about thirty mini greek frozen yogurt balls.

melting chocolate

I opted for a honey-flavored frozen Greek yogurt, since I thought that would be best coated in a chocolate shell. Nate doesn't like fruit with his chocolate. I've been really enjoying dark chocolate-covered honeycomb lately from the natural food store nearby. Honey and chocolate make a great combination!

Adding coconut oil to the chocolate chips help them melt smoothly and gives the bon bons a nice hard, shiny coat when they dry.

I've used this coconut oil-chocolate combination to coat everything from strawberries to graham crackers, but I have to say that frozen greek yogurt has been my favorite chocolate project so far!

Let the Greek yogurt bon bons dry on the parchment paper briefly before putting in a bowl to serve as tasty little snacks. They're great on the couch OR at the table, and they're a good way to keep a healthy diet on track without your family getting bored.
