I saw a recipe on Pinterest for a healthier version of souffle made with vanilla greek yogurt. I did a little modifications, to make my version even healthier (plain low fat greek yogurt, white rice flour, and a sugar substitute) and to change it from vanilla to chocolate. Souffles tend to get a bad rap, branded as difficult to make. For those of you concerned about the difficulty factor in this recipe, it couldn't be any easier! I never expected that these would turn out to be so scrumptious; light, fluffy, a little bit tangy, and GUILT FREE!!!
1 cup plain non-fat greek yogurt (I use Chobani)
3 large eggs, yolks separated from the whites
3 tbsp white rice flour
3tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp cream of tartar
1/4 cup sugar substitute, I use Z Sweet
butter for greasing
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees
- Butter 3-4 6 oz ramekins; coat with sugar, and tap out excess. Place on a cookie sheet.
- In a large mixing bowl whisk together the yogurt, egg yolks, flour, salt and vanilla extract.
- Using your stand mixer, beat the egg whites and cream of tartar until foamy. Gradually pour in the sugar and whisk until firm, but soft peaks form.
- Add one third of egg white mixture to the yogurt mixture and combine, then carefully fold in another third, then the remaining.
- Divide evenly into ramekins. Fill to the line just below the rim because when they fall you still want to have volume in the ramekin.
- Place the cookie sheet in the oven and bake for about 15 minutes, until evenly risen and lightly browned around the edges.
- DO NOT OPEN THE DOOR TO PEEK :)
- Serve immediately with a little powdered sugar, or chocolate shavings
You can wrap these and store in the refrigerator, they won't stay as light & airy but will become more of a cheesecake consistency (still delish!)
