Edited to add- Hello, all. 

Greetings from day two of my beach/mountain hybrid vacation. If you read my post on Saturday (which included a randomly deliciously amazing recipe), you’d know that I spoke of the first night involving a campsite with no amenities. 

About an hour out from the campsite, my friend and I received a call from two of our friends who’d driven down in a separate car earlier than us. They mentioned that the campsite had been closed off, due to weather and electricity issues. We needed to reschedule the night for the way BACK which meant…..motel room service last night. 

Not going to lie. I hope the campsite is closed on the way back too.

Proyo. 

Ever heard of that before? 

It’s infamous amongst the bodybuilding and weightlifting community and frankly, anyone who wants a cheats way to enjoy protein powder mixed with yogurt. If you have a scroll through Instagram, you’ll see people take this to the next level, pimping out their ‘proyo’ bowls with candy, cereal, GRANOLA BARS (seriously), and some even using it as a blank canvas to pretty much top it with a sandwich.

Not even kidding.

I’ve been a fan of mixing Greek yogurt with protein powder and topping it with some of this granola, and leave it as that. If I was being fancy, I may have added some of this nut butter but really, it was my poor man’s pudding/creamy something substitute.

Saying that, something I preach constantly on here (and those who have tried multiple protein powders before) is that NO PROTEIN POWDER IS CREATED EQUAL

If you need some proof, go to your local health food store and buy single serve sample packs of a variety of protein powders (whey, casein, blends, paleo, pea etc). Then, buy individual containers of Greek yogurt and be presented with a VARIETY of textures- From thick and creamy to sticky and drippy

NO CONSISTENCY.

“I don’t eat dairy!”

“I don’t like Greek yogurt. I only like plain yogurt!”

“I’m paleo!” 

Don’t worry…I gotcha covered.

You might remember from this post that I tried it out with a variety of bases (Greek yogurt, plain yogurt, coconut yogurt, lite coconut milk, full fat coconut milk and soy yogurt) and the four main types of protein powder (brown rice vegan, casein, paleo and whey)

The biggest issue is the texture, as mentioned earlier. No one wants soupy ‘pudding’ so we will include my secret weapon……Coconut flour.

A mere tablespoon of this magic grain free flour can take a soupy ‘pudding’ into something thick and satisfying.

Bonus? It’s that time of the month for a Protein Giveaway with my friends from Growing Naturals! I love mixing their Vanilla Brown rice Protein Powder or Chocolate Brown Rice Protein Powder with Greek yogurt, but I favor the vanilla one….sorry. 

Unlike my other Giveaways with Growing Naturals, sending a batch of this low carb vanilla pudding probably won’t fare too well via USPS, UPS or even the holy grail which is Fedex. To combat this, if you are one of the two winners, I’ll be sending them a big batch of these Grain Free Chocolate Brownie Protein Cookies instead!

This healthy low carb, high protein vanilla pudding uses just three ingredients and is thick, creamy and is the perfect sweet snack or pre/post workout meal, or when you want something lower in carbs! It’s completely customizable, depending on what dietary lifestyle you follow, and you can make it as thick or thin as you like, thanks to the coconut flour. It’s the kind of recipe you can enjoy immediately, or prep in advance- simply combine the night before or a few hours before consumption, and it becomes EVEN THICKER! Depending on which option/combination you use, it is naturally gluten free, vegan, dairy free, paleo and sugar free!

HACK! Not a fan of coconut flour? You can easily sub it gluten free oat flour or almond flour, but you’d need to double the amount. You can omit it completely, however, only the casein protein powder and brown rice protein powder, mixed with the Greek or plain yogurt came out successfully.

Hint- To the spoon test. If the spoon can stand up, you are gold. 

Choose your battles.

  1. I’ve been all about any form of pudding/yogurt for my evening snacks recently. They go down easily, especially if you are full but needing a little something-something, and feels extra good in the warmth of summer. I do need some crunch though so have been topping mine with hemp and cacao nibs or plain old chunks of chocolate.

  2. Dude! I love me some pudding. Did you ever get Jello Pudding Pops down there in Aussie Land when you were young? Here in the States, Bill Cosby was always on commercials advertising them. My sister and I would fight over them…but then they stopped making ’em. No idea why. I’m thinking if I freeze this proyo pudding of yours, then I’ll have a pudding pop!

  3. Yassss to this protein pudding! We’ve been eating greek yogurt mixed with protein powder for a long time, especially after a workout and I love that you added coconut flour to thicken it. Can’t wait to make this and top it with more toppings than the actual pudding itself 😉

  4. This looks delicious! Definitely a more fun way to get protein in. I work woth a lady who crushes chocolate biscuits to top her yoghurt. I think she’s onto something.

  5. There should always be sprinkles on pudding! My favorite yogurt topping is toasted coconut 🙂 This looks delicious!!

  6. Yum! I need to pick up some vanilla protein powder for this. I currently only have chocolate ? Love you blog!

  7. Proyo??? I’ve never heard of that term before. How funny!!! Ugh this pudding looks absolutely devine. You know I love sprinkles 😀

  8. I’m obsessed with yogurt and eat it every morning, so this would be a nice switch up. I usually top it with frozen berries, chocolate dusted almonds, cinnamon, and nut butter.

  9. You’ve probably already answered this somewhere before, but what is your go to sub for protein powder? I do zero waste all self sustainable so I’d love a less processed replacement! Thanks! I’ve been bragging your blog up like crazy, your recipes are amazing!

  10. I’ve seen “frotein” and “proyo” ERRYWHERE. Frotein is one of my go-tos: protein powder, fruit, ice and a ton of superfoods! I personally don’t use the sugar free pudding mixes everyone else uses because I don’t really like those 😛

    Aaaaaaaaaaaanyhow. I’ve always loved topping yogurt with granola, dark chocolate, nut butter (duh), fruit and cinnamon! Tastes incredible! I can never get enough!

  11. Favorite regular yogurt topping: berries. Favorite fro-yo topping: crushed Reese’s. Loving the use of coconut flour to thicken this. I ❤️ coconut flour.

  12. I remember eating that all the time when I wasn’t vegan. Now I think it’s kind of crazy because why didn’t I just use bananas as a base? It’s so much better! I guess when you don’t know the beauty of bananas, you wouldn’t think of it. Thanks for sharing Arman!

  13. My favorite yogurt topping is blueberries cooked down with a little bit of stevia and thickened with a bit of xanthan gum. NOM

  14. I knew this was going to have coconut flour—love it! I happened to be eating Greek yogurt with coconut flour mixed in as I read this. So good. Thanks for sharing—this recipe sounds delicious : )

  15. Ohmygosh yogurt toppings….I love it mixed with cocoa powder, fresh raspberries, and a touch of agave. Or mixed with homemade apple crisp. Or with granola, banana, and peanut butter…..I could go on forever haha

  16. I top my yogurt with a homemade mix of oats, cinnamon and ground flax seed. Gotta get that fiber in!

  17. I make “proyo” all the time… I didn’t know that there was actually a name for it! I love topping it with any kind of nut butter, but my topping always ends up as a mix-in. Recently, I’ve been topping/mixing my proyo with Birthday Cake Buff Bake. I’m pretty sure that I’m well on my to becoming a Buff Bake addict…. =P

  18. Depends on the yogurt! If its chocolate yogurt, then peanuts. Vanilla yogurt gets sprinkles. Strawberry yogurt gets peanut butter!

  19. My favorite topping is granola 🙂 It gives just the right amount of sweetness and crunch I love. I also love adding maple syrup or chocolate!

  20. I’ve never even heard of proyo before your blog! And now I HAVE to try it. Super excited to here about your cookbook coming out. Will be anxiously awaiting its release! If I had to pick a topping for my proyo, it would have to be toasted pecans.

  21. I like coconut as a topping and also recently had a key lime pie inspired greek yogurt that had a topping of graham bits and mini white chocolate chips that was very good.

  22. Hey 🙂
    Thanks for your recipe! I love to mix casein with yoghurt to get a nice texture (and flavor – cookies and cream in yoghurt makes it taste like cake batter!) but I never thought of adding coconut flour! That offers a lot of new possibilities now 😀

    I love to top my yoghurt with fresh or frozen berries and roasted almonds. yum yum yum.
    If I had a bad day I top it with apples and a lot of oreos 😛

    Am excited for you cookbook, hope it will be ready soon *-*

  23. Ive been wanting to get non-dairy protein for so long now!! But I’m poor and I’m moving (aka no room for giant tubs in mah uhaul) but i gotta hop on this train!! And favorite proyo topping.. it’s never a toss up to say peanut butter but i’d say sprinkles and those random cookie dough chunks are a close second!

    OH and if it counts.. using an Eat Enlightened ice cream bar as the spoon 😉

  24. Raw Honey and cinnamon in my Greek yoghurt….kills me every time….in a good way X-D. If I’m feeling adventurous, I just might add some cayenne or ancho powder to kick it up a notch, but si old cinnamon n honey is my winning go to combo.

  25. I love topping yogurt/pudding with something a little crunchy, like sliced almonds or cacao nibs or granola! Recipe looks awesome, coconut flour is a great thickener.

  26. I have Fage Greek yogurt a few days a week for breakfast and I always mix it with chia seeds, flax seeds, fresh berries, and sometimes muesli or granola.

  27. Our favorite yogurt topping is – granola! We also LOVE your blog. From your writing style, to your recipes, to your photos; you’re awesome!

  29. I don’t think we have that type of protein powder here in Australia. So can I use any sort of powder and how much would be in your scoop…in tablespoons etc.

  30. Hi, Arman! I adore your blog–filled with healthy, wholesome recipes.
    I recently did a bit of an “experiment” in the kitchen, so to speak. In an effort to add necessary calories to plain greek yogurt, my mother added a scoop of plant-based protein to a cup of 2% Fage. The result was a smooth, creamy, thick (oh my was it thick!) bowl of nourishing goodness! It’s an excellent base for cereals, diced nutrient bars, etcetera. And all of this was done prior to stumbling upon your recipe!
    I’m going to try to add a little bit of coconut flour, which would help add nutrient-rich calories and even more thickness. Thank you for sharing! 🙂
