Greek Yogurt Recipes

Deliciously healthy greek yogurt recipes blended into a protein-packed greek yogurt smoothie. All of the health benefits of greek yogurt have made this special yogurt very popular.

I have personally grown to enjoy greek yogurt smoothie recipes quite often.

What is Greek Yogurt?

Greek yogurt is regular yogurt strained. The liquid whey is mostly removed with a bunch of protein left behind to create a thick and creamy greek yogurt. The whey is the biggest difference between greek yogurt vs regular yogurt.

Benefits of Greek Yogurt

The two biggest benefits of greek yogurt recipes are:

#1 – Protein

Plain nonfat greek yogurt has about double the amount of protein than regular plain nonfat yogurt with about the same about of calories. I have personally found that a greek yogurt smoothie generally satisfies my appetite longer than regular yogurt smoothies.

#2 – Beneficial Bacteria

The overuse of antibiotics, chemical-filled processed foods, and even some anti-bacterial natural supplements (Ex. raw garlic and goldenseal) kill necessary intestinal flora. Unfortunately, most people lack enough intestinal bacteria in their gut… So they experience frequent constipation and are constantly sick. Many experts say that a healthy immune system requires a healthy gut.

Also… the beneficial bacteria, intestinal flora, helps digest and breakdown our foods. That way we can assimilate more of the nutrients in the foods we eat.

What to Look for in Greek Yogurt

If you are looking to avoid extra calories, I recommend that you use plain nonfat greek yogurt for your smoothies. I generally avoid pre-flavored yogurts, as they are filled with sugars, food dye, and chemicals. To sweeten and to add flavor to plain yogurt, I love using flavored liquid stevia. It adds no calories and lots of flavor.

My favorite stevia flavors to mix in with yogurt are berry and vanilla. Yummy!

You can save a bunch of money and make your own homemade greek yogurt. You can even use coconut milk, almond milk, hemp milk, etc to make delicious yogurt.
