Five Ways You Can Eat Protein For Dessert


Protein is good for you. It’s so good for you, in fact, that you should have plenty of it every single day. The daily recommended protein intake for women is about 46 grams versus 56 grams for men. This means that you need to ensure you’re getting what it takes to meet those needs in your daily diet. Some people easily get what they need by eating protein rich meats and veggies, and other people aren’t so good at this. That’s why we love a good protein-filled dessert item. It’s good because you’re getting something out of it and not just a lack of good health. Since some people are more dessert-oriented than they are actual healthy eaters, this might be some of the only protein they’re getting throughout the day. So we have five great dessert add-ons that can make your daily protein intake as good as it gets. Read on to find out how to add a little more protein to your dessert.

Greek Yogurt

This is filled with protein and so good for you. Add some of your favorite, such as chocolate chips or some fruit and make it even more delicious.

Raisin Cookies

Raisins have a lot of protein, so why not put them in your next batch of cookies and just enjoy? It’s a delicious way to add a little health to your dessert.


Peaches are so good by themselves, but what about adding a dollop of whipped cream to the top of a bowl of peaches, adding a little vanilla ice cream and calling it a day? It’s protein-packed and delicious.


We love this because it’s so good and it’s so amazing, and it needs nothing else. Cantaloupe is so decadent and delicious and it’s filled with healthy protein, so it’s a great healthy dessert alternative.

Apples and Peanut Butter

If you love apples and you love peanut butter, why not put them together and create a delicious snack after dinner. It’s sweet and good, and it’s going to be healthy enough to curb your guilt.
