High Protein Holiday Trifle

Who says you have to choose between eating healthy or indulging in the deliciousness of the holiday season? This Greek yogurt trifle combines the best of both worlds. Modify your brownie to Greek yogurt ratio to fit your goals. The measurements in the recipe below make for a special occasion dessert, but you could use a fraction of the brownies to make it a fun and festive high protein treat. Did someone say brownies for breakfast?

I made this recipe using a box of Simple Mills brownie mix, but you could also use pre-made store bought or Grandma’s famous secret family recipe.

This recipe makes for 10 good size servings – perfect for a party. You’ll want to serve these within an hour of assembly so if you have a smaller crowd, cut the recipe as they will get soggy as leftovers.
