5 Smoothie Making Secrets
Secret 1- Greek Yogurt
Greek yogurt is creamier and thicker than regular yogurt, which makes for better smoothie consistency. (I’ve tried lots of kinds!) Dannon® Oikos® is created through an authentic Greek straining process which gives it the creamy-thick texture. Dannon® Oikos® Plain and Fruit on the Bottom contains 0% fat. The yogurt is an excellent source of protein, twice that of most regular low fat yogurts. I usually buy a quart of the vanilla… but, this time I used the 5.3 oz container to test out the honey stuff.

Secret 2- Frozen Fruit
Secret 3- Juice
Secret 4- Honey
Secret 5- Must Have Ingredients
You can add anything as long as you have one banana, Greek yogurt, juice, and frozen fruit. I love to add things like carrots, spinach, kale, celery, and obviously any non frozen fruit.
Here was yesterday’s masterpeice. That’s All Bran, wheat buds cereal on top. I feel like it adds a little more goodness and crunch!
Are you smoothie maker? How do you feel about frozen fruit v. non frozen fruit? Do you add anything else to your smoothies? Have you ever tried Greek yogurt? Do you like Greek yogurt better than regular yogurt?
