Protein Frozen Yogurt
Megan Koscinski, MS, RD
It can be hard to deny yourself snacks and desserts after metabolic and bariatric surgery, but what if you don’t have to?
Put aside the pint of Ben & Jerry’s and make your own chocolatey and indulgent protein-packed bariatric-friendly snacks!
This frozen yogurt recipe features Greek yogurt and chocolate whey protein powder meal replacement as the main ingredients to provide a low-calorie, low-fat, low-carb, and high-protein healthy snack. Bariatric patients will love it as a simple way to meet daily protein goals.*
You can enjoy this yummy recipe right after blending, or (if you have the patience) freeze it for that ice cream consistency you’re craving after weight loss surgery (WLS).
Tip: Mix in a spoonful of peanut butter or sprinkle some of the chocolate chips on top!
1 cup nonfat vanilla Greek yogurt
1 tbsp Bariatric Fusion Chocolate High Protein Meal Replacement
1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
¼ cup sliced strawberries
½ tbsp dark chocolate chips
1 tsp olive oil
In a medium-sized bowl, mix the Greek yogurt, protein powder, and cocoa powder.
Add sliced strawberries on top of the yogurt.
In a small bowl, add dark chocolate chips and olive oil. Heat in microwave for 20 seconds or until melted.
Mix well, then pour the melted chocolate over the yogurt and berries.
Optional: Freeze for 15-30 minutes to mimic ice cream consistency.
