No Bake Layered Chocolate Protein Dessert

2 Bowls414 cals

Over the past few months I’ve found a way to use up just about every single ingredient in my house. One of my favorite quick recipes I’ve been making is this Layered Chocolate Protein Dessert made with rolled oats!

Yes, I’ve finally been using up my surplus of rolled oats. With this no bake recipe we’re also gonna make a protein fluff that’s delicious so let’s jump right into it!

Overnight Oats

We’re gonna start this one by making our overnight oat mix. Add into a bowl 3/4 cup of rolled oats, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 1/4 cup of milk substitute, 1 container of Greek yogurt, and 1 1/2 scoops of your favorite protein powder.

Make sure your Greek yogurt and protein powder flavors compliment each other. Mix those together and once they’re mixed, toss them in the freezer so that they can thicken up while you make your fluff layer for your chocolate protein dessert.

Protein Fluff

Add into a small mixing bowl, 3 tablespoons of heavy cream and 1 tablespoon of a sweetener. You’re gonna mix these up until…it’s fluffy.

We could say until “stiff peaks form” but to go with the recipe, we’re gonna say fluffy! This should take a couple minutes. Tip? Use a hand mixer if you have one unless you want quick workout.

Once it’s fluffy, you want to quickly mix in 1 container of Greek yogurt and 1 scoop of either chocolate or vanilla protein powder. Again, choose flavors here that compliment each other. Today, I’m going vanilla for both.

Once those are mixed you’re ready to get your oatmeal mix. All you have to do now is just layer it evenly into whatever you want to eat it out of. A bowl, cup, or mason jar like I’m doing today (which makes it travel friendly too).

I can usually make 2 servings of this chocolate protein dessert with half pint mason jars!

4 Quick Tips

  1. Make sure you store it in the fridge if you make more than 1 serving
  2. The colder your cream is, the quicker it’ll fluff up
  3. If you don’t mix your cream separately, it won’t fluff up right and you’ll be left with a dessert soup
  4. Eat your protein fluff as is, top it with whatever you want, or use it as a topping on other things like cheesecake, pie, and so on

    All of these recipes look really tasty! My only question, are you usually using sugar free Greek yogurt?

    • Derek Howes on March 22, 2022 at 5:57 pm

      Usually lower sugar but not completely sugar free (depending on the flavor).

    Hi. Yummy recipe. Do you use nonfat or low-fat or regular fat greek yogurt? Also, the sweetener- is that a tbsp of traditional sweetener i.e. sugar, or an alternative like stevia? Thank you 🙂

    • Derek Howes on February 24, 2022 at 7:59 am

      Hi Rosemary! This would be nonfat and your preferred alternative (I think I used Erythritol here). Hope this helps 🙂

    This looks delicious! I’m confused about the amount of green yogurt, what size container did you use?

    • Derek Howes on February 23, 2022 at 3:26 pm

      A standard container here is 5.3 Ounces/150g. Added this to the recipe card as well!
