For those days when you can’t face another protein shake, protein dessert is there to save the day. Whether you fancy it in the morning, lunchtime or evening it’s the perfect snack to spend your MyProtein discount on, especially if you’re a fan of angel delight.
MyProteins dessert is a protein powder blend, which mixes with water or milk to create a delightful guilt-free mousse-like pudding. Developed using a blend of Casein, Whey Protein Concentrate, and Egg White Powder, it’s a great snack for those with a sweet tooth.
With over 30g per serving (2 scoops) it makes a great post-workout nibble and due to the casein (a slow release protein) it also makes a great pre-bedtime bite.
Casein is more effective when your body has to go for long periods without food. Unlike Whey, it’s designed to release protein slowly throughout the body, preventing muscle breakdown, over a long time period.
Oh, and it’s suitable for vegetarians.
The serving size is 50g, 30g of which is pure protein. Additional to the high protein content, it also contains less than 2.5g of sugar and only 3.8g of fat making the macro’s look pretty damn appealing.
- Protein: 30g – 64%

It’s no surprise this is described as such a healthy dessert.
I turned to MyProteins dessert when our usual protein mousse brand decided to up their prices to extortionate levels. Although I did love their product, I felt they were riding more on their brand and that Myprotein’s, although cheaper would be pretty much the same.
The serving suggestions for this suggest mixing two scoops with water or milk and leaving it to set in the fridge, which is fine, but I prefer mixing it with greek yoghurt and making a thick gloopy pudding.
That’s not to say the suggested way is bad, I just think the creamy yogurty taste makes it sooooo much nicer. I also add some crunchy peanut butter to give it an even richer taste. Though this probably isn’t a great idea if you’re trying to lose weight.
If that’s the case you should probably stick to the original suggestion, which is:
- 2 scoops in a shaker with 150-250ml of milk or water
- Pour into a bowl and leave to set for 10 minutes +
This should leave you with a lovely mousse pudding, similar to angel delight. but, make sure you don’t add too much liquid. I’ve done it quite a few times and it didn’t set.
I currently use the chocolate peanut butter flavour which isn’t as nice in mousse form as the other flavours we have tried. I definitely use that one more in yoghurts, than with water.
Though, yoghurt and mousse aren’t the limits – I’ve also used it to make pancakes, in protein shakes and smoothie bowls. It’s a pretty versatile product that can be used just the same as normal whey protein.
Price and deals:
The previous protein dessert product I used upped their prices from £10 a pack to £19 and that was only for a750g bag. To me, that is pretty extortionate especially when you use 50g a time.
MyProtein only charges £29.99 for a 1.5kg pack of protein dessert, plus they always have money off offers on to ensure you never have to pay the full price. The last time we bought this we only paid £21.59 by using the discount codes on our MyProtein page.
