Ingredients for Chocolate Raspberry Protein Trifle

These chocolate raspberry protein trifles are made with a protein brownie and Greek yogurt, and have no eggs, no oil, no sugar either; The perfect chocolate protein trifle!

  • Chocolate Protein Powder needed for high protein brownie trifle and also replaces most of the ‘sugar’. I used whey-caesin Chocolate Milkshake protein powder from Quest Nutrition for this recipe.
  • Unsweetened Cocoa Powder, or Raw Cacao Powder (HAYLSKITCHEN.15OFF to save on Kiva Cacao)
  • Gluten Free (All Purpose) Baking Flour – or a regular all purpose flour
  • 1:1 Zero Calorie Sugar Substitute – I use Lakanto, to keep this recipe sugar free; (code HAYLSKITCHEN for a discount here too)
  • Non-fat Greek Yogurt contributes to the oil-free part of the high protein trifle since it adds the moisture, and also extra protein
  • Almond Milk or regular milk
  • Baking Soda
  • Runny Almond Butter (no butter or oil to keep this recipe low fat)

And for the Protein Custard Layer in this Greek Yogurt Trifle

  • Greek Yogurt
  • Vanilla Protein Powder; This is the source of sweetness in the protein custard for this layered dessert. No added sugar in this recipe. Quest again here.
  • A bit of Unsweetened Almond Milk

And to make it a Protein Berry Trifle..

  • Fresh Raspberries! A really beautiful raspberry and brownie trifle here!
