Ingredients in this Chocolate Protein Yogurt Bowl
Plain Greek Yogurt: I use 0% fat plain Greek yogurt from Trader Joe’s or Fage as I find that the thickness of them is very desirable. Feel free to use any type of Greek yogurt here that you want, but stick with plain as there are other dominating flavors in this recipe.
Chocolate Protein Powder: I use grass-fed beef chocolate protein from Amazon for this recipe. I’ve tried almost every protein powder under the sun and have come to love this beef protein for two reasons, 1. It does not upset my dairy-sensitive stomach and 2. The texture is on point. But feel free to use whatever chocolate protein powder that matches your dietary needs.
Frozen Blueberries: The frozen wild blueberries are my blueberries of choice here. The smallness of them allows for a crunch that doesn’t explode in your mouth or give you a brain freeze! You can find these in the freezer aisle of many grocery stores - look for the “wild” on the label so you know they’ll be the teeny ones.
Granola: Any type of granola here will work, just be sure to use about ¼ cup for a good topping ratio. But honestly, you-do-you and the more granola the merrier! I like Trader Joe’s peanut butter protein granola for an extra dose of protein and the texture/flavors are so yummy! I am a huge chocolate peanut butter fan, anyone else?!
Any Nut Butter: Just a drizzle of your favorite nut butter. PB2 sprinkled on top is also a favorite and lower-fat option if that’s what you’re looking for. I love Justin’s Almond Butter or any nut butter from Trader Joe’s!
