I have to admit. I’m not a smoothie person. That is unless I make my own! I’m kind of a control freak when it comes to making food and especially when it comes to smoothie making. Part because I have Hashimoto’s and part because I want to ensure the ingredients are paired in a way that’s healthy and keeps me full.
Smoothie’s are generally made with too much sugar, too much fat and not enough protein. Balancing a smoothie and pairing the ingredients in a way that balances blood sugar is important. Not only does this ensure you stay satiated and full for hours after drinking it, it also promotes fat loss.
Yes! Pairing ingredients the right way teaches your body to burn fat as fuel. Carbohydrates whether from fruit or candy are broken down into glucose. That glucose is converted into fat if your body has no where to store it.
Obviously, fruit has numerous health benefits and fiber but it’s just as important to pay attention to how you eat fruit as it is with any type of sugar as it affects hormones. I teach how to eat for hormonal weight loss in my weight loss program.
Strawberry Greek Yogurt Smoothie
This Strawberry Greek Yogurt Smoothie is 100% delicious and Master Your Cravings approved. Not only does it have addictive flavors (the most important part, right?!?), it’s higher protein to keep blood sugar stable. That means your body can reap the energy from the fruit longer and slower without a sugar crash.
How do we get higher protein in a smoothie? Greek yogurt! Dairy does have naturally occurring sugar, but Greek yogurt has a bit less and it’s higher protein. Also, let’s not forget Greek yogurt makes smoothies incredibly thick and creamy!
This Strawberry Greek Yogurt Smoothie is everything your smoothie dreams ever dreamed of! Thick, creamy, sweet and delicious. A refreshing way to cool off during warm weather months!
What You Need
While you can use fresh or frozen strawberries for this recipe, I personally prefer the frozen fruit in the Strawberry Greek Yogurt Smoothie. It gives the smoothie the perfect texture! Fresh strawberries yield a slightly thicker texture so if you go that route, I recommend you add a bit more ice to thin it out.
No strawberries? Swap it for blueberries, mixed berries or cherries! One of the things I love about this smoothie is how versatile it is. You can easily swap and mix different fruits. Great way to enjoy different nutrients and switch up your routine!
