Prep Time 4 minutes
Chill Time 30 minutes
Servings 1
Calories 176kcal

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt I love using Fage 0% for that creamy texture without the fat
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder My go-to is the Isopure Zero Carb for a smooth blend
  • 1 tablespoon sugar-free banana cream Jell-O pudding mix for that irresistible banana flavor without the sugar spike
  • 4 sugar-free vanilla wafers HighKey makes some that are just perfect for this recipe
  • Whipped topping Cool Whip Zero Sugar works great for a guilt-free indulgence

Instructions

  • Start with the Base: In your favorite mug, combine the Greek yogurt, vanilla protein powder, and sugar-free banana cream pudding mix. Stir everything until you achieve a smooth and creamy consistency.
  • Add the Crunch: Crush the sugar-free vanilla wafers into your pudding mixture. This step adds a delightful texture that’ll remind you of traditional banana pudding.
  • Chill Out: Pop your mug into the fridge for about 30 minutes. This waiting game allows the wafers to soak up the banana-flavored goodness, softening into the perfect pudding consistency.
  • Top it Off: Just before serving, add a generous dollop of whipped topping. For an extra special treat, mix the whipped cream right into the pudding and cookie mixture for a creamy, dreamy texture.
