The BEST Low-Sugar, High-Protein, Healthy Dessert

The BEST Low-Sugar, High-Protein, Healthy Dessert — High Protein Dessert

I don’t often make bold claims, but I genuinely do believe that the recipe I have for you in today’s blog is one of the healthiest desserts going.

Not only that, but it tastes fantastic too.

Oh, and it takes virtually no time to make – there’s not even any cooking required.

The other beauty of this dessert is that it can be adjusted to suit any day on the Carb Cycle plan, so whether you’re on a no-carb, low-carb, or high-carb day, this will work for you.

People often say that you can’t eat dessert (or even any tasty food whatsoever) when you’re dieting, but if you know me, you’ll know I’m all about making your fat loss diet as enjoyable as possible, because if you enjoy it, you’re more likely to stick to it, and get better results.

What’s in a Good Dessert?

First up, let’s talk about the basics of a good dessert, and why “fun foods” can still be fat loss friendly.

For one, you need protein in there, and we have that in today’s recipe.

It can be difficult to get protein in sweet foods, as people typically think of protein as coming from meat and fish (which it does) but there are other ways you can get it too.

Ideally, it should also be low in carbs, or the carbs in there should at least be nutrient-dense and packed with fiber.

It definitely needs to be low in sugar, and not too high in fat or calories either.

Again, my recipe here ticks all the boxes.

The Recipe

I won’t keep you in suspense any longer – here’s the recipe:

3 heaped tablespoons of yogurt
1-1.5 scoops of grass-fed whey protein powder
Big handful of blueberries
Almonds (on a low or no-carb day)
Give it a good mix, and enjoy.

That’s it – incredibly simply, incredibly filling, and unbelievably delicious.

“Can Something This Good Really Be Healthy?”

Great question.

And the honest answer is yes – 100%.

See, from the yogurt alone you get around 20 grams of protein, and the whey adds another 20 to 30 grams on top, giving you more protein than a chicken breast or a lean steak.

Berries give you that immune boost from all the micronutrients they contain, as well as big dose of fiber, and slow-digesting carbs for energy.

On a high-carb day, I suggest opting for a lower-fat, higher-carb yogurt, while on a low or no-carb day, you’ll go for a higher-fat, lower-carb yogurt, and add in a few almonds (or another raw nut of your choice.)

That’s the one area where people always go wrong with low-carb days – they think that low-carb also means low-fat, but it doesn’t.

By going for the higher-fat yogurt and the nuts on your low-carb days, you avoid the energy slumps so often associated with traditional low-carb diets, and stay on track to fast fat loss.

The Proof is in the Pudding

What did you think?

Tasty, right?

Let me know your thoughts below, and I’d love to hear of your own tweaks to this.

Anything you change to suit your diet, or any awesome ingredients I might be missing out on? I always like getting new ideas for quick, tasty, fat loss recipes, so share them here.


  1. Should I use whey protein or Casein protein? Whey protein is quickly digested however Cardin is slowly so goes throughout the day. So what should I use ?

  2. Isn't there some significant concern relative to the negative effects of animal protein? Please take a look:

  3. can I do the same with Greek Gods plain greek yogurt? I love really thick yogurt and theirs is wonderful 🙂 also what is the sugar sub. in the dark chocolate whey protein? there are sugar subs that have a bad aftertaste. I use the large silver container of whey protein, as it is very low in sugar and has no bad aftertaste 🙂

  4. Is eating flour, grain, whole grain, whole wheat okay?

  5. i didn't need more addictions, now I'm addicted to your channels. Awesome man. Can I eat this before bed as a late night snack?

  6. Literally just ate that 30min ago lol. Fat free Greek yogurt & my chocolate protein powder.

  7. This cracks me up! You Just start throwing stuff in the bowl with zero measurements! That's the same way I cook everything. I'm sure some people who need step by step along with exact measurements are freaking out! 😂

  8. I thought it would taste decent, but had low expectations!  IT WAS AMAZING!   It tasted just like ice cream!  I only found you a  week ago and I feel like I've learned more from you in that time than months of other social media platforms/sites I follow.  Thanks for all you do!  Being Patient! Being Persistent! And Getting Fit! One day at a time! 🙂

  9. Hey Michael, how you doin.

  14. I have done this before, it is amazing, I have also frozen it to make it like an ice cream. Please do more recipe videos.

  15. I'm guessing that will be for sale on your website? Any idea on prices, yet?

  16. I actually eat this right when I wake up before going to gym. I even use the same protein, but vanilla flavor. You mentioned you use other grass fed whey, too. would you mind sharing what the other brands are?

  17. Is it bad to drink a green smoothie with fruits everyday for breakfast? When I first started to do these smoothies I thought they were really healthy but now that I think about it…I feel it may have alot of sugar for fat loss..what do you think?

  18. That is the protein i started to use, and is good i don't feel heavy or bad taste. I really like this video, just a great snack.

  19. What brand of Whey protein do you use? I prefer a natural/organic brand so I was using Raw Garden of Life before, but it caused me to have acne breakouts on my forehead. I've been told that this can be common..I'd like to try another brand.

  20. Great tips! Even just your basic chicken veggies recipe. Watching someone else cook something very basic can show open new techniques. Or get someone new started when they realize how easy it really is.

  21. ISONatural natural flavor (by ALLMAX) has 2 ingredients… It seems like you were excited about your current having a bit more than a handful.
