Sometimes my recipe ideas come from traditional dessert recipes I find online, sometimes they come from readers, and sometimes they come from wanting to make use of what’s in my refrigerator. What’s a girl to do with some Greek yogurt and too many almonds? Make Vanilla Almond Protein Frozen Yogurt, that’s what!

Using the Vitamin Shoppe‘s True Athlete Vanilla whey was a no-brainer here; it has the creamiest natural vanilla flavor! Perfect for a vanilla frozen treat!

I added a little almond extract to boost the almond flavor, and some chopped almonds for the flavor and crunch. And with a Greek yogurt base, the frozen texture is great!

If you haven’t tried the True Athlete natural whey line, you are missing out! Pick some up and give this Vanilla Almond Protein Frozen Yogurt a try!
