You know when there is a viral recipe, you know we’ve got to try it for ourselves to see if it lives up to the hype! This Air Fryer Banana Split and Blackberry Cheesecake Cottage Cheese Ice Cream are living proof of that.

These Protein Frozen Yogurt Cups are no exception. They may look sweet and decadent, but they pack a protein punch that makes them a healthier and more satisfying snack option — both of which we’re all about here at Fit Foodie Finds.

The recipe is quick and easy to make with simple ingredients. The chocolate shell take some time to harden, but after that, you just add the filling, top with the remaining chocolate, and freeze one last time before it’s time to enjoy.

Grocery List for Protein Frozen Yogurt Cups

  • Semi-sweet chocolate chips: The base of the chocolate shells. You can also use dark chocolate or milk chocolate if you prefer that.
  • Coconut oil: Helps the chocolate shells harden and creates a smooth, glossy texture.
  • 2% Greek yogurt: A complete dairy protein, 2% plain Greek yogurt is the base of the filling and adds a creamy texture without being too tart.
  • All-natural, drippy peanut butter: Use whichever brand you prefer. Just make sure it is all-natural to avoid added sugars and oils.
  • Honey: Adds a touch of natural sweetness to the filling without having to use artificial sweeteners.
  • Sea salt: Sweet and salty is always a winning combination! It enhances the natural flavors of the protein cups.
  • Vanilla protein powder: We used Whole Foods 365 whey protein powder, but feel free to use your favorite brand or even a vegan option.
  • Muffin tin with liners: You’ll need liners to make it easier to remove the cups from the tin once they are frozen.

Delicious Filling & Topping Ideas

Fillings: Add your favorite fruit to the yogurt filling for added flavor and texture. Raspberries, blueberries, or sliced bananas would be delish options.

Toppings: Get creative by adding different toppings to your yogurt protein cups.  Crushed nuts, shredded coconut, or even sliced fresh fruit would all be delicious options.

Love dark chocolate?

Use dark chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet for a richer, less sweet flavor.  

Can I make these yogurt protein cups vegan?

Absolutely! Swap the Greek yogurt for non-dairy yogurt. You can also use flavored yogurt, like vanilla or strawberry. The chocolate can also be replaced with a dairy-free version.

Can I use a different nut butter?

For sure! We tested this with almond butter, cashew butter and peanut butter and all are absolutely delish. Let us know in the comments if you try it with sun butter 😀

be patient!

Our #1 tip for this recipe is to make sure the chocolate is completely hardened before adding the filling. That way the filling will stay inside the cup and the chocolate will stay on the outside 🤩🤩🤩

Storage Directions

These protein frozen yogurt cups are best stored in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 3 months. Just make sure to let them thaw for a few minutes before enjoying!

  • 1.5 cups 2% Greek yogurt
  • ½ cup all-natural drippy peanut butter
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • ¼ cup vanilla protein powder we used 365 whey protein powder

Tips & Notes

  • We did not have to microwave our chocolate a second time. But, it is important to do it in shorter increments so the chocolate doesn’t burn and start to harden again.
  • Any nut butter would work in this recipe.
  • Chocolate protein powder can be substituted for vanilla.
  • Maple syrup can be used in place of the honey.
  • If you want a sharper flavor, sub half the semi-sweet chocolate chips with dark chocolate.
