When you’re working out and building muscle it’s really important to get enough protein. Generally you want to eat 1 gram of protein for every pound of your goal body weight.
Also, protein keeps you full and satisfied throughout the day, which decreases cravings for lower quality foods.
This is one of my favorite high protein, healthy snacks. It takes less than a minute to prepare.
Take 1 cup of 0% plain Greek yogurt, mix it with 1 tablespoon of peanut butter (you can use 2 tablespoons if you want more PB), add 1 packet of Stevia in the Raw or sweeten to taste. Mix it all together and you have a delicious high protein snack!
If I am craving sweets I add a teaspoon of Hershey’s special dark chocolate chips, and then it’s like having a healthy dessert. It’s so filling that it kills my cravings for anything else!

Yum! Great idea, I love both greek yogurt and peanut butter so this would be great for me 🙂 Only thing I would change is getting an organic peanut butter with no added sugar.
Have a great week!
Great point! I have used organic PB in the past, but I haven’t replaced my stock. 🙂 It is on my next shopping list.
Great idea to just eat it on its own! I make a dip similar to this when I get a sweets craving for my apples, but I use the choclate PB2 which totally tastes like a peanut butter cup! I’m sure it would be great just by itself too!
I have been loving your website and workouts – very intense. I’m a huge fan of peanut butter and never thought to add it to yogurt. This has been my snack this week and I think it’s brilliant! Thank you!

Newest favorite snack! I use local organic honey in place of sugar & sometimes sprinkle a little cinnamon in it! Yummo!
I kinda rediscovered this combo about a week ago and did a search to see if anyone else was doing the same :). Aside from this I also add some frozen mixed berries and a couple of frozen coconut pieces from Trader Joe’s. Delicious!
I started mixing fat free Greek yogurt, sugar free organic crunchy peanut butter., and stevie a week.or is ago. Delivious! Did an Internet search to see if others did the same, and found your 2012 post and the related comments.
