I’ve been struggling with finding a protein-heavy vegan yogurt so I decided to try making my own. The ones I found in my supermarket were all Coconut Milk or Almond Milk based so I whipped out my blender and tried to make a yogurt with some ice. It only took 4 ingredients and it turned out delicious. The yogurt tasted just like chocolate frozen yogurt and with the add-ins I recommended, you will get some extra sweetness too if you need it, but the yogurt itself was already naturally sweet! It’s such an easy recipe – I’m really glad it worked out and tasted so delicious. And, on top of it, one serving of this yogurt has 23g of protein and is only 160 calories! The best part, in my mind, is that it is chocolate flavored haha. You cannot beat that. Let me know how yours comes out!
Yields 2 – 4 Servings
Serving Size: 1 1/2 cup of yogurt (for 2 servings)
1 cup almond milk
3 scoops SunWarrior Chocolate Warrior Protein Powder
10 – 12 ice cubes
1 tsp cinnamon powder
1 tsp probiotic powder (optional)
1. Throw all the ingredients into a blender and blend on high speed for about a minute (use an ice crusher setting if your blender has one). Open the blender and make sure the texture is smoothie-like. If you think it is too watery/milky still, add more ice cubes. Don’t be afraid to add more ice to make it as thick as you want.
2. Empty the blender into a bowl and place the bowl into the refrigerator for about 10 minutes before enjoying. Leave any extras in the fridge – it will last fresh for about three days.
3. Eat with any add-ins or alone! I enjoyed my yogurt by dipping strawberries into it. You can throw in some nuts, chocolate chips, fresh fruit, granola, etc.
