Why you’ll love it

The Greek yogurt pudding dessert is perfectly sweet, high protein, and super creamy! It’s easily one of my favorite dessert recipes because of how incredibly simple it is.

If you’re someone who loves a sweet treat but is also looking for a high protein snack too, this pudding also has 15 g protein per serving!

I especially love that this recipe uses Greek yogurt instead of something like protein powder for the protein source. Nothing against protein powder, but sometimes it can overpower the recipe a bit!

This easy dessert takes 5 minutes to make and is so simple- you just mix your ingredients in a bowl and let it set for a couple of minutes. That’s it, done.

It also stores well and can be made ahead for an easy grabb-able healthy treat for the week!

You can use any instant pudding mix for this recipe which means the possibilities are endless. You can make Greek yogurt chocolate pudding, butterscotch pudding, cheesecake pudding– there are so many delicious dessert options!

  1. Plain Greek yogurt: Plain Greek yogurt amps up the protein in this pudding but I promise, it doesn’t end up tasting like Greek yogurt at all. I prefer full fat Greek yogurt for max creaminess, but you can use non-fat Greek yogurt too or any kind that you like.
  2. Instant pudding mix: Any instant pudding mix will work here! I usually choose sugar free pudding mix, but regular is perfectly fine too. If you’re looking for an option without artificial colors, I like this one.
  3. Milk: I like using Fairlife 2% milk for even more protein per serving, but you can use any milk. Note: You can use dairy alternatives like almond milk or oat milk, but the pudding will not set up quite as well and will be “fluffy” versus creamy. For the best creaminess I recommend using regular milk.

Step-by-step instructions

  1. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together Greek yogurt, milk and pudding mix until smooth and creamy. Note: If you’d like your pudding and yogurt mixture to be a bit fluffier, mix it in a food processor, blender or use a hand mixer to give it more of a “whipped” consistency.

Recipe FAQ

Do I have to add milk or can I just use Greek yogurt?

Yes, you could add 2 cups of Greek yogurt instead, but you’ll get more of a “fluff” texture than a creamy pudding. Personally I think the added milk makes a huge difference while still having enough Greek yogurt to bump up the protein! You can also use a little bit less milk, but I do recommend using some!

Can you make it ahead of time?

Yes! You can make a batch of this and then store it in your fridge for up to 4 days in an airtight container. It’s a great “meal prep” dessert recipe that you can make for the week!

Does it taste like Greek yogurt?

Honestly once it’s mixed with the dry pudding mix and milk, you’d never know it was mixed with Greek yogurt! Even if you’re not a big fan of Greek yogurt I think you’ll enjoy this one!

Can I use flavored yogurt like vanilla yogurt?

You can, I would just be mindful of how much added sugar or sweetener is added to the yogurt you choose, because the flavor may be a little strong when mixed with the pudding mix.
