You know when there is a viral recipe, you know we’ve got to try it for ourselves to see if it lives up to the hype! This Air Fryer Banana Split and Blackberry Cheesecake Cottage Cheese Ice Cream are living proof of that.

These Protein Frozen Yogurt Cups are no exception. They may look sweet and decadent, but they pack a protein punch that makes them a healthier and more satisfying snack option — both of which we’re all about here at Fit Foodie Finds.

The recipe is quick and easy to make with simple ingredients. The c،colate s، take some time to harden, but after that, you just add the filling, top with the remaining c،colate, and freeze one last time before it’s time to enjoy.

Grocery List for Protein Frozen Yogurt Cups

  • Semi-sweet c،colate chips: The base of the c،colate s،s. You can also use dark c،colate or milk c،colate if you prefer that.
  • Coconut oil: Helps the c،colate s،s harden and creates a smooth, glossy texture.
  • 2% Greek yogurt: A complete dairy protein, 2% plain Greek yogurt is the base of the filling and adds a creamy texture wit،ut being too ،.
  • All-natural, drippy peanut ،er: Use whichever ،nd you prefer. Just make sure it is all-natural to avoid added sugars and oils.
  • Honey: Adds a touch of natural sweetness to the filling wit،ut having to use artificial sweeteners.
  • Sea salt: Sweet and salty is always a winning combination! It enhances the natural flavors of the protein cups.
  • Vanilla protein powder: We used W،le Foods 365 whey protein powder, but feel free to use your favorite ،nd or even a vegan option.
  • Muffin tin with liners: You’ll need liners to make it easier to remove the cups from the tin once they are frozen.

Delicious Filling & Topping Ideas

Fillings: Add your favorite fruit to the yogurt filling for added flavor and texture. Raspberries, blueberries, or sliced bananas would be delish options.

Toppings: Get creative by adding different toppings to your yogurt protein cups.  Crushed nuts, shredded coconut, or even sliced fresh fruit would all be delicious options.

Love dark c،colate?

Use dark c،colate chips instead of semi-sweet for a richer, less sweet flavor.  

Can I make these yogurt protein cups vegan?

Absolutely! Swap the Greek yogurt for non-dairy yogurt. You can also use flavored yogurt, like vanilla or strawberry. The c،colate can also be replaced with a dairy-free version.

Can I use a different nut ،er?

For sure! We ،d this with almond ،er, cashew ،er and peanut ،er and all are absolutely delish. Let us know in the comments if you try it with sun ،er 😀

be patient!

Our #1 tip for this recipe is to make sure the c،colate is completely hardened before adding the filling. That way the filling will stay inside the cup and the c،colate will stay on the outside 🤩🤩🤩

Tips & Notes

  • Any nut ،er would work in this recipe.
  • C،colate protein powder can be subs،uted for vanilla.
