Protein Packed Cookie Dough Yogurt

Protein Packed Cookie Dough Yogurt

Prep time: 10 minutes

Mixing and assembling time: 5 minutes 

Chilling time: 30 minutes (optional)

It's recommended to refrigerate the yogurt for at least 30 minutes to let the flavors meld together and achieve a more cookie dough-like consistency. However, you can skip this step if you prefer to enjoy it immediately.

Total time (including optional chilling time): 45 minutes 


- 1 1/2 cups plain Greek yogurt (full-fat or low-fat, according to your preference)

- 3 tablespoons creamy almond butter (or any nut butter of your choice)

- 3 tablespoons honey or maple syrup (adjust to your sweetness preference)

- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

- 1/4 teaspoon almond extract (optional, for a more pronounced almond flavor)

- 1/4 cup dark chocolate chips (70% cocoa or higher)


  1. In a medium-sized bowl, combine the plain Greek yogurt and creamy almond butter. Mix them well until you get a smooth and creamy consistency.
  1. Add the honey or maple syrup to the yogurt mixture. Stir until the sweetness is evenly distributed. Taste and adjust the sweetness according to your liking.
  1. Add the vanilla extract and almond extract (if using) to the yogurt mixture. These extracts will enhance the cookie dough essence.
  1. Now, fold in the dark chocolate chips into the yogurt mixture. The dark chocolate chips will add richness and a burst of chocolate flavor to mimic the chocolate chips in cookie dough.
  1. Transfer the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Greek Yogurt to a serving bowl or individual cups. 
  1. For the best flavor, cover the bowl or cups with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Chilling allows the flavors to meld together and enhances the overall taste.
  1. Before serving, you can sprinkle a few extra dark chocolate chips on top for garnish.
