Lemon Parfait Recipe #MyGoodEnergy #TeamPremier #Giveaway @PremierProtein #Ad

lemon parfait

disclosure    Now that Memorial Day weekend is behind us, I feel like the summer season is on the horizon.  It’s so exciting to think about long, summer days enjoying some refreshing beverages along with my favorite desserts.  Being a teacher affords me the luxury of having summers off with both of my boys.  As a result, I like to spend every minute with them and not slaving away in the kitchen.  Many of the recipes that I prepare during the summer are quick and easy so I don’t have to worry about taking valuable quality time away from my family.

    Premier Protein® offers a great-tasting shake packed with 30 grams of protein that come in 3 delicious flavors (Chocolate, Vanilla and Strawberries & Cream) and have 1 gram of sugar and 160 calories. The drinks are designed to fit an on-the-go, healthy lifestyle.

    This is perfect for our family because we love to take road trips and also enjoy our snacks while we are being active.  I love the Premier Protein® shakes because they can be enjoyed simply by drinking them but they are versatile enough to be included in some of my favorite recipes.

    It just so happens that my guys love to eat my Lemon Parfait treats when they are on vacation.  I’ve been making it for years but, this time, I decided to substitute the milk component in the recipe with Premier Protein® Vanilla Shake.  It was a perfect substitution because Premier Protein® shakes boast the following nutritional elements:

  • 30g Protein – including all the essential amino acids
  • 160 calories
  • 1g Sugar
  • Low fat
  • 24 vitamins and minerals
  • An excellent source of calcium


Here is the recipe that I used which contains only 5 ingredients:

Lemon Parfait


  • 1 Package of angel cake
  • 1 Box of instant lemon pudding
  • 2 Premier Protein® Vanilla Shakes
  • Lite whipped cream

In a large bowl add the boxed lemon pudding and 2 Premier Protein® Vanilla Shakes.
-Whisk until the mixture is pudding like.
-Refrigerate for 15 min to help thicken it up a little bit.
-In a mason jar or bowl add pieces of the angel cake first, then layer with the pudding and whipped cream.
-Continue to add layers of the angel food cake, lemon pudding, and whipped cream until jar or bowl is filled. Top off with a lemon wedge and a piece of angel food cake.

    I know for a fact that I don’t get enough protein in my diet, so I would love to mix this into a parfait or even a smoothie. Sounds like a great way to get it into my diet.

  2. Really!! Only 1 gram of sugar!! I need to go to their site and find out what the ingredients are in this. Depending on the sweetener that they use I may be able to eat it or drink it I should say.

  3. That looks really pretty and delicious. My husband’s favorite flavor is lemon. I’m sure he would enjoy this a lot. I take protein myself because I always tend to test low for it.

  4. I am a choco- holic so I know that I would pick chocolate but then again I do like my vanilla! I’d love to try this.

  5. Starla B says

    That looks absolutely delicious and its amazing that you incorporated this! I would definitely use the Vanilla Premier Protein Shakes in my homemade funfetti cupcakes! Yum!

  6. Wow when I saw the pic I didn’t think this would be as healthy as it is. Looks absolutely wonderful.

  7. Ooh, that looks so delicious and refreshing. Perfect for summer!

  8. I have never tried these shakes but honestly I would definitely try the chocolate first–Hum–Chocolate Pudding, Chocolate shake, pound cake and either raspberries or strawberries. Of course I also love lemon so I will probably try your parfait as well!!

  9. Oh I love all lemon desserts. I would love to try and make these, they look perfect for summer and so refreshing!

  10. I would try it in Banana Pudding

  11. meagan bs says

    i would love to make that lemon parfait

  12. I would pick chocolate mix smoothie

  13. Wow, these look amazing! And the photo had great lighting too. I love a good parfait.

  14. I have a great peanut butter & chocolate recipe that this would work well in!

  15. Maryann D. says

    I would use either the Chocolate or Vanilla Premier Protein Shakes in a morning breakfast smoothie. Especially in the summer I love to make cool smoothies with different frozen fruit. Premier protein would be great to add to the fruits.

  16. Patricia says

    I would use the vanilla to make chia pudding.

  17. Oh, that looks so good!! Lemon is one of our favs … pinning!!

  18. Ooh a lemon parfait dessert would be really nice right now. All of that protein would be a huge plus!

  19. Oh my word. Lemon is my absolute favorite and I would love this right about now. This looks amazing!

  20. I am a big fan of lemons, those parfaits look super yummy! I would love try and make them this weekend.

  21. This looks like a great recipe for the health conscious. I really like lemon in the summer too.

  22. Oh yum! This looks so good, I bet my friends would like it for our cook out

  23. Wow, that looks really refreshing. And energizing? Yeah I could definitely live with that.

  24. I’d love to add the vanilla to fruit smoothies. I’ve been wanting to try a powder.

  25. I haven’t had a premier protein shake in a long while. Before they had much more sugar. I guess I’ll have to check it out again.

  26. Oh that looks so good, like clouds and sunshine. Mmmmmm. I would love to try

  27. Jordan D. says

    I absolutely LOVE the idea of using this to make instant pudding. I never thought to use a pre-made protein shake like that. I’d definitely have to steal your idea on these and make some pudding haha. They’d also be great added to some iced coffee instead of cream, a little post-workout protein boost for after my AM gym sessions.

  28. Jennifer Williams says

    Well that looks better than the protein shake I make myself every day! I have not heard of this brand, will definitely be on the lookout for them to give them a try.

  29. Ann Bacciaglia says

    This looks like such a delicious recipe. I would love to try this. I need to get more protein into my diet.

  30. Oh that recipe looks amazing. I love lemon treats, looks refreshing!

  31. I can get on board with this! Looks like the perfect summer dessert!

  32. Vanilla is my favorite flavor, plus, you can add cinnamon to it and make it taste even yummier! 🙂

  33. This parfait looks amazing. I need to give it a try as I am sure I am not eating enough proteins.

  34. I would like to try making the Protein Pancakes with the Vanilla Shake.
    Thank you for the review and giveaway!

  35. Brittney House says

    I would use it in a pudding recipe.

  36. Mary Calabrese says

    I love the idea of substituting the Premier protein for milk in pudding recipes. That sounds yummy and healthy.

  37. I would make a shake. I think I would add a banana, too!

  38. I would use the chocolate to make either chocolate pancakes or a protein brownie, I would definitely get creative 🙂

  39. Akkira Foster says

    I would definitely try the vanilla to make a lemon parfait, it sounds like a sweet treat that isn’t too fattening. I would love to win these! With my Crohn’s, I can’t have too much but this is too good sounding.

  40. Stefanie Gladden says

    I would use chocolate protein powder in brownies or cakes, and vanilla protein powder in my smooties!

  41. Erica B. says

    Would be good mixed with fruit.

  42. kim keithline says

    I would love to try the lemon parfait it sounds great but I would also make the overnight oatmeal with vanilla or chocolate flavor of the protein shakes.
