The Benefits of Yogurt in Your Smoothie Recipes




The Benefits of Yogurt in Your Smoothie Recipes - Yogurt, like smoothies, comes in a huge range of types and flavors. Taking advantage of this similarity can help design fun new smoothie recipes. If you find your smoothie is too thin or watery, a great way to thicken it up is to add a “custard style” yogurt. This can also help add or change the flavor. Or, if the flavor is already good, using a “plain” flavored yogurt will help retain the existing taste. Other types of yogurt styles such as “light and fluffy” can add a fun new texture to any fruit smoothie recipe.

Another advantage of using yogurt in a smoothie is that you can buy yogurt with the fruit already in it. This takes away the requirement of keeping fresh fruit around all the time. Dumping in a delicious strawberry yogurt or two to any recipe will have the benefit of both the yogurt and the fruit! This is especially useful when trying to make a smoothie at work or while traveling. The fewer ingredients you have to worry about, the better!

Yogurt contains many powerful, healthy ingredients, such as probiotics, which can help regulate and improve your digestion system. For people who don’t always enjoy eating yogurt, adding it to a smoothie is the perfect way to get those health benefits! Fruit smoothie recipes with yogurt are often high in many critical vitamins, calcium, probiotics, antioxidants, protein and many other healthy nutrients. It would be hard to come up with a better tasting health drink.



Adding yogurt to a smoothie is a natural way to add variety to your smoothie recipe collection. The simple addition of either flavored or plain yogurt can add new life to old recipes or even change the texture of a smoothie to create a whole new experience. The convenience of adding yogurt couldn’t be easier as well, since you can either use the individual serving cups of yogurt or buy a large container of your favorite flavor to last for several weeks.

Fruit smoothie recipes with yogurt are available online, in recipe books and sometimes even right on a yogurt or smoothie mix container. The popularity is growing and the trend seems to show that it will only continue to get more popular as people try it. Try this great tasting recipe for yourself or make them to share at a party! Fruit smoothies recipes with yogurt are great any time!
