Greek Yogurt contains about twice the protein as regular yogurt. The added protein makes you feel fuller for longer, helping you reduce the intake of other, less healthy, calories.
Some additional benefits of smoothie recipes with Greek Yogurt are the Vitamin D and Calcium that the yogurt contains. The US population, as a whole, is deficient in both Vitamin D and Calcium.
In this video, Registered Dietitian Tara Todd and Executive Chef Robert Grotha with St. Louis Children’s Hospital share their version of a smoothie recipe made with Greek Yogurt. The smoothie they make is blended differently than most I’ve seen, actually appearing to be more of a soft frozen yogurt than a typical smoothie.
But, I’ll be darned! It sure looks delicious!
One of the More Unique Smoothie Recipes with Greek Yogurt
This smoothie recipe doesn’t provide the measurements or ingredients, but it looks like about a cup of Greek Yogurt with a handful (maybe 1/4 cup) each of blueberries, strawberries and raspberries. The chef mixes the smoothie with a spatula instead of mixing the smoothie in a blender. I’d prefer the blender to infuse the fruit flavor into the yogurt more fully.
