A quick and delicious 4-ingredient strawberry Greek yogurt smoothie that can be enjoyed as a breakfast treat or as a tasty snack!
If you follow our sister website, then you know Kim and I adore all sorts of smoothies.
For today, we're sharing our strawberry Greek yogurt smoothie. Why Greek yogurt you ask?
Should I put yogurt in my smoothie?
A lot of smoothie shops and restaurants use ice cream to create that signature flavor and texture.
Kim and I drink a lot of smoothies and the idea of eating that much ice cream on a regular basis would do a number on our health.
So, we started using yogurts and frozen fruit to re-create the same texture without all the added sugar and fat.
In closing, if the choice comes down to yogurt or ice cream, then yes, you should put yogurt in your smoothies.
How to make a strawberry Greek yogurt smoothie?
First, start by washing your strawberries and removing the stems. After that, place them in a large freezer bag.
Next, put the bag of fruit into your freezer overnight or for at least 2-3 hours so the berries can freeze.
Then, place the frozen strawberries, Greek yogurt, honey, and almond milk into a large counter-top blender.
Alternatively, if you have a food processor, you could use that as well.
Now, pulse the ingredients until they're smooth and creamy.
Personally, I recommend using a spoon to do a taste test. Add more honey, if needed and pulse once more to blend everything.
Last, transfer the smoothies to glasses and enjoy! That's it your strawberry Greek yogurt smoothie is done!
We hope you enjoy the treat and wish you the best 🙂
- You can use frozen strawberries instead of fresh ones. It won't change anything about the recipe. In fact, it will save you 2 steps.
- If you don't like almond milk, then use dairy milk or coconut milk. However, be aware the calories will be different.
- Don't have honey, then you can use agave nectar, stevia, or sugar as a last resort.
Can you mix yogurt and milk into a smoothie?
Yes, in fact, that’s a much better alternative to ice cream. Which, is what a lot of smoothie shops use their smoothies.
Are fruit and yogurt smoothies healthy?
In short, it depends on a lot of factors. Including, the kinds of fruits, yogurts, and added sweeteners you decide you use. If you’re wondering about a certain dish or recipe, then I would say don’t ask Google, ask your physician or specialists (if you’re seeing any).
