How To Make Protein Frozen Yogurt

Over the last six years, my life has gone through some major changes.

There were a lot of surprises along the way. I was surprised that I could make 100x more money working for myself than working a job, that my biggest problem in my life was me and that getting in shape is 80% food.

I’ve spent a lot of time in the kitchen learning how to create healthy foods that I enjoy. I mean, a guy can only eat chicken breast and broccoli so many times.

One staple in my new diet is Greek Yogurt, specifically Fage 0% Greek Yogurt. It’s packed with protein and with a few simple additions tastes like dessert.

Today I’m sharing my Protein Frozen Yogurt recipe and a video I made a few days ago of me putting it together. If you want to eat healthy but don’t like boring foods I suggest you try it out.

Enjoy.

The Details

I’ve provided the nutritional info below. This is for a base bowl of yogurt, protein powder and fruit.

I can add things like ice cream bars to my bowl because I’m eating on a very detailed system and it fits my numbers. If you’re trying to lose weight you definitely do not want to add the ice cream bar.

Tip: 2 cups of greek yogurt is a lot of food. If you want less, cut the entire recipe in half.

Your health is your most important asset. $1 Million dollars won’t do you much good if you’re too sick and depressed to leave the house.

Learn to eat. Find what works for you and take control of your body. It’s not hard to do. All you need is Myfitnesspal and a food scale and you can lose or gain as much weight as you want to.

    Hey Malan, nice video. I would like to see more recipes from you. I have one question as I understand your eating philosophy you can eat whatever you want as long you stay within your daily calories? Is this correct? So this mean I can also eat fastfood like burger, pizza, ice cream as long as i stay within my nutrition plan?

      Leon – look up macros and “iifym”

  • Petre Veluda

    It’s great that you share these kind of posts as well. Many of us are interested in keeping a healthy diet and as we are lazy by nature, it’s always nice to have someone put the “recipe” under our nose. Ironic but true. Thanks M!

      thanks Petre – gotta mix it up a bit from time to time.

    Sounds like a good recipe. I’ll have to try it. I just started making my own smoothies in the morning and it’s going good so far. It’s more fruit than I’ve ever are it my life. I plan on adding veggies soon. BTW. Thanks for recommending the Myfitnesspal app. It’s made me realize how many calories I was consuming everyday. My eating habits are getting better everyday with the app. Thanks!

      nice job on the smoothies. great way to get your fruit and veg in for the day.

      and YES MyFitnessPal is great. I think every human that eats food should use it for at least a year, just to get insight into what they’re eating. It would solve obesity. I mean, if you see how many calories/carbs/fats are in your McDonald’s bacon burger – you probably won’t eat it.

    I’ll have to give this a shot. Thanks for sharing.

    I just started to eat greek yogurt about 2 weeks ago. I was keeping track of calories, but decided it’d be better to get more granular and track carbs, fats and protein.

    I can’t believe how much carbs are everything. I found with my current diet hitting my numbers is/was hard.

    So I tried greek yogurt. It’s too sour/tart for me, so I mix in the vanilla flavored yogurt at 1:1 or 2:1.

    It helps, but I think the protein powder and fruit will be easier and taste better. I need protein powder anyway – I’m finding it hard to get in all the protein I want to.

    Thanks again, Malan 😉

      Don’t be afraid of carbs. You need a balance of proteins, fats and carbs in your diet or you’ll go nuts.

      My current macro split:
      40% protein
      40% carbs
      20% fats

      and yeah, get some cheap whey protein and you’ll have no problem hitting protein.

    Late to the discussion, but surely you didn’t *actually* mean only 6g casein—but you said it 3 times and nobody seems to have commented?
