Healthy Double Chocolate Protein Frozen Yogurt

My solution to the humid, Texas heat is to lock myself indoors with the AC blasting and a big bowl of this Double Chocolate Protein Frozen Yogurt.

Taking Cherry for a walk is also a form of torture.  The only way I make it is knowing that there’s a nice and cold, delicious bowl of fro yo waiting for me back at home.  When I unlock my front door I can hear the faint sounds of this chocolate goodness calling my name.  And when I open the freezer, it’s like a choir of angels start to sing.

Last week, I was planning on making my Chocolate Frozen Yogurt.  I wanted to add an extra kick of protein, so I adjusted the recipe a little bit to add in a few scoops of protein powder.  I’m so glad I did.

This Healthy Double Chocolate Protein Frozen Yogurt is so, so creamy, chocolatey, and refreshing.

  1. Is this possible without an ice-cream machine?
    Will the old “freeze it in a loaf pan and stir it every thirty minutes for three hours” work? Or maybe…just freezing it will work? Thanks!

    • I’m afraid not. An ice cream machine is a necessity for my healthified recipes (without the machine they will crystallize… I’ve tried it, sadly)

      • Hey! Thanks for replying. I ended up finding my ice-cream machine and made this. However, when I checked on it this morning, it was frozen solid. I thought the churning was going to make it so that it DOESN’T freeze solid?! Do I just need to leave it out for ten minutes before trying to scoop or did I make some mistake? I followed the instructions and then followed the ice-cream maker’s instructions… Thanks!

      • Almost all homemade ice creams will freeze solid (especially healthier, low fat ones)! The ice cream machine just helps make the texture better at the right temperature. I say in the instructions to freeze until it’s the texture you like, which is about 5 hours for me. To get a scoop able consistency, stick the frozen ice cream in the fridge overnight or leave it at room temp for 30 min-1 hr, depending on how warm your kitchen is.
