Greek Yogurt Raspberry Smoothie

facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterest greek yogurt raspberry smoothie

I’ve been reading about smoothies, and it seems that the word “smoothie” (meaning a smooth talking person) first appeared in print in the US around the early 1900s. However, the fruity drink didn’t become known as smoothies until around the 1960s.

I wanted my smoothie to be a bit more filling than just some frozen fruity juice, and so I experimented with adding some Greek yogurt as well as almond milk. It was quite delicious and very filling!

TIP: Keep some bananas and berries frozen in your freezer for this! I don’t drink smoothies all the time, so it’s handy to have the bananas around when I do want a glass (it also means you don’t have to add ice).

Oh, and I even topped it with some more Greek yogurt :)

    I make the same shake using homemade coconut yogurt!! it is so heavenly. I love the tartness of the yogurt and I sometimes crumble up some freezer fudge on top and drizzle with honey. simple food is the best.

    Any alternatives to using bananas? I’m allergic to them and so have to be very careful with smoothies. Usually, I use mango, but was curious if you knew any other alternatives?

      For me, bananas provide a good alternative to cream/milk in the texture of the smoothie, so instead of bananas you could use another fruit and add in coconut cream to get that creamy texture. Sorry, I haven’t heard of any other better alternative.
