The Best Greek Yogurt Protein Powder
Sick of protein shakes? Adding protein powder to Greek yogurt is a great way to give the blender a break. Although any type of yogurt will do the trick, Greek yogurt is your best option. Greek yogurt is thicker and creamier than regular yogurt. It also has more protein and less sugar. I recommend using plain Greek yogurt and flavored protein powder. If you use the right protein powder, you will make a crave-worthy, low sugar snack.
Like all dairy products, Greek yogurt contains lactose. Greek yogurt contains less lactose than regular yogurt, however, which makes it lactose intolerant-friendly It also contains live and active cultures, which help break down the lactose that it does contain.
Dietary protein is the most satiating macronutrient, which means that eating a bowl of protein-boosted Greek yogurt for breakfast will keep you full until lunch. This is key if you are trying to lose weight. Researchers have found that adding low-sugar, high-protein yogurt snacks to your diet can help fuel weight loss efforts.
Mix Greek yogurt and protein powder for a wholesome, filling breakfast. For an extra protein boost, add nut butter, flaxseeds, and chia seeds.
“I just finished my first bag and ordered 2 more! I Iove this stuff! I have IBS and every protein powder hurts my stomach…except drink wholesome!”
Why drink wholesome?
This recipe was made with drink wholesome vanilla protein powder. It is perfect for adding to recipes. Most protein powders are not because they are made with protein concentrates and isolates, foods stripped of everything but the protein.
Unlike real foods, protein concentrates and isolates are missing the nutrients that make food taste good. In other words, they turn delicious recipes into hockey pucks. With enough trial and error, you can make these protein powders work, but how much chalky yogurt are you willing to make?
Another reason why drink wholesome is perfect for baking is that it is sweetened with monk fruit. Monk fruit, also known as lo han guo, is a small, melon-like round fruit native to Southeast Asia. Monk fruit sweetener is made by removing the seeds and skin, crushing the fruit, and collecting the juice, which is then dried into a powder.
We use monk fruit sweetener because it has a sweetness similar to that of sugar. Artificial sweeteners and stevia, on the other hand, are either way too sweet, or have a bitter aftertaste. Order samples to experience the monk fruit sweetness for yourself.

How to make Greek yogurt and protein powder ice cream.

Mix the Greek yogurt, protein powder, and almond milk thoroughly. I recommend using a blender, although a whisk and some elbow grease will work just fine. Place the mixture in a freezer (or ice cream machine if you have one). If using a freezer, fold the mixture gently with a spatula every 30 minutes. Repeat this for at least two hours. When you are hungry, remove the frozen yogurt from the freezer for 5-10 minutes before serving.
