Also, you will need two eggs, one whole egg and for the other one, you will only need the egg white. You will also need one ripe banana, two tablespoons of cocoa powder, one-fourth of a cup of Greek yogurt, and lastly, two tablespoons of unsweetened almond milk.
When it comes to icing, you will need one scoop of chocolate protein, six tablespoons of fat-free cool whip, four ounces of cream cheese with reduced fat, and optionally, one packet of Stevia.
