A tangy runny custard when hot and thick when cool. This white chocolate yogurt custard is perfect with a good old fashioned crumble or as a stand alone dessert in it’s own right.
Twitter can be a great place for stimulating ideas. Who would have thought of yogurt custard? Well, following a Twitter conversation with Dom of Belleau Kitchen and Total Greek Yogurt a challenge was born. Dom was to have a go at making yogurt custard and I was going to try a chocolate version.
Dark chocolate custard was what I had in mind as it would of course be delicious, but at the last minute I decided I would make a white chocolate yogurt custard which I thought would go particularly well with a fruity crumble.
White Chocolate Yogurt Custard
As it happened, I never got around to making the crumble. This is a shame as, served hot, this custard would have been perfect for it. Custard is a natural accompaniment to so many hot puddings. I’m thinking how good it would be with my blackberry and apple crumble, this Snowdon pudding or my favourite rustic rhubarb galette.
Despite the lack of crumble, the white chocolate yogurt custard worked tremendously well. It made a fantastic dessert in its own right. I served it cold in individual bowls with a little grated white chocolate on top. It was such a lovely smooth, creamy and tangy custard. And, wise up custard skin haters, it didn’t form a skin. I can see this being made again.
Thanks go to Total Greek Yogurt for sending me a “cool” bag containing some of their delicious full fat Greek yogurt. I’m a big fan and use it a lot, both in my baking and with savoury dishes. It’s a lovely treat on breakfast muesli or granola too. You can find recipes for an easy vegan honey almond granola, gluten-free granola or chocolate granola here on Tin and Thyme.
I’m familiar with the 500g tub and the smaller 170g size but I hadn’t realised until I was sent one, that they do a one kilo tub too. How wonderful is that?
What To Make With Leftover Egg Whites
This recipe leaves two leftover egg whites. However, I always see this as a good opportunity to make something else. That something else is usually friands as they’re quick to make and delicious to boot. But there are other options.
Here are all the recipes on Tin and Thyme that use only egg whites.

Yogurt Custard. PIN IT.
White Chocolate Yogurt Custard
White Chocolate and Yogurt Custard
- 2 egg yolks (large)
- 40 g vanilla (golden caster) sugar
- 400 g Greek yogurt
- 50 g white chocolate
- Whisk the egg yolks in a pan with the sugar until smooth. Then whisk in the yogurt.
- Heat the pan gently whisking from time to time to ensure no lumps form and the mixture doesn’t get so hot that it curdles. The mixture will thin initially, but keep going until it thickens again – about 15 minutes.
- Remove from the heat and add the chocolate. Stir until melted and smooth.
- Use immediately as a warm custard sauce or pour into individual pots and leave to set in the fridge for a couple of hours.
Thanks to Total Greek Yogurt for providing the yogurt. Thanks to my readers for supporting the brands and organisations that help to keep Tin and Thyme blithe and blogging. Opinions are, as always, my own.
