Fab Fit Friday Treat: Dark Chocolate Chip Coconut PB2 Protein Yogurt


I am really excited to share this quick protein fix with you all. Ever since I up'd my weight lighting workouts, I have developed a strong sweet tooth. If you are familiar with my blog, you know I already have a huge craving for sweets. Lately, it's been out of control. 

A couple days ago after my workout, I wanted something chocolaty and creamy. I needed a boost of protein as well. I started grabbing everything that would taste good in Greek yogurt. 

After throwing it all together, I tried it. I had a big smile on my face because, I had managed to create a delicious treat without any sugar-free products. I knew you all would be proud of me. This is the perfect dessert if you want a fast protein fix and a sweet tooth killer. This is a perfect weekend treat instead of going for the ice cream tub or cookie jar. 

I have already made it three times this week! I hope you all enjoy it as well.




Ingredients:
  • 1 Tbsp Whey Protein
  • 6 oz Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 1/2 Tbsp Dark Chocolate Chunks
  • 1 Tsp Organic Cocoa Powder
  • 1 Tbsp PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter
  • 1 Tsp Raw Unsweetened Coconut 
If the yogurt has a sour cream taste, add a packet of truvia or stevia. 


Add all ingredients to a mixing bowl, or to the container of yogurt. I am a messy mixer, so I used a larger bowl to combine. 


You can put the yogurt back into the container and freeze for a Fro-Yo treat!
