I don't know about y'all, but I have a viscous sweet tooth. Honoring my sweet tooth is paramount to my personal dietary success-- I simply cannot ignore it. Enter, "protein whip". Light, fluffy, and oh so decadent. My fiance and I make this multiple times a week when we're craving something dessert like!

INGREDIENTS + PREP

Food Scale / Measuring Cups
1. ADD Your Yogurt
Measure out 1/2 CUP (113G) of yogurt into your bowl. Use a food scale for greatest accuracy.
Our favorite brands are :
*You do not have to use fat free yogurt-- I prefer to keep my fat content lower. Make adjustments as needed to fit your own macros.
2. ADD Your Whip
On top of your yogurt, measure out 10TBSP (45g) of fat free cool whip.
More cool whip = fluffier whip!
I'll use anywhere from 4-10 TBSP depending on what i'm craving.
3. ADD YOUR PROTEIN
On top of your yogurt + whip, add
1 scoop of vanilla protein powder.
I'm using Syntrax Nectar Sweets in Vanilla Bean Torte, one of my faves.
Protein powder makes all the difference here; get creative with using different favors. Make sure you're using a powder that you like,
4. Add your flavors
Add 2-4 drops of vanilla extract
Add one squirt of liquid stevia
Add cinnamon to taste-- I like a lot!
This is the time to get creative with extracts and other spices! I love putting coconut extract in, for example. My fiance has flavored his with peppermint extract. Nutmeg, cardamom, pumpkin spice-the possibilities are endless.
5. Mix well
That's it-- mix thoroughly!
Stop here and enjoy your protein packed whip alone or take it to the next level with step 6!
