How to Create Your Guilt-Free Dessert

  1. The Yogurt Base: Begin by taking your favorite mug, and into it, add one serving of Greek yogurt (5% plain). Greek yogurt is not only rich in protein but also provides a creamy texture that forms the perfect foundation for our dessert.
  2. Protein Powder Magic: To boost the protein content and infuse that delightful cookies and cream flavor, incorporate one scoop of cookies and cream flavored protein powder. We recommend using Isopure zero-carb protein powder for its variety of flavors and fantastic taste.
  3. Mix to Perfection: Stir vigorously to ensure the protein powder blends seamlessly with the yogurt, creating a smooth and creamy consistency.
  4. Chocolate Cookie Crunch: Time to add a delightful crunch! Crumble some Fat Snacks Mini Double Chocolate Chip Cookies into the mug. These cookies are not only delicious but also low in net carbs, making them a fantastic choice for this high protein dessert.
  5. The Chocolate Drizzle: In a separate bowl, melt approximately one tablespoon of ChocZero chocolate chips. Add a teaspoon of coconut oil to create a luscious and smooth chocolate sauce. Microwave the mixture for about 30 seconds until it’s perfectly melted.
  6. Swirls of Sweetness: Pour the melted chocolate sauce over the yogurt mixture and create mesmerizing swirls that cover the top. This chocolate drizzle will solidify beautifully in the freezer.
  7. Chill and Enjoy: Place your mug of goodness in the freezer for approximately 30 minutes. During this time, the dessert will transform into a heavenly frozen yogurt treat with over 40 grams of protein, less than 300 calories, and just five grams of net carbs.
  8. Magic Shell Marvel: As an extra special touch, the sugar-free chocolate chips mixed with the coconut oil create a magic shell topping that takes this dessert to the next level.

And there you have it – your very own high protein chocolate cookies and cream frozen yogurt, ready to be enjoyed guilt-free! With a protein-packed base, delectable cookie crumbles, and a magic shell topping, this dessert is both satisfying and nutritious. Say goodbye to cravings and hello to delightful indulgence.
