Greek yogurt continues to gain in popularity. I think that’s because it has a different consistency from regular yogurt and so is more satisfying in many ways. A Greek yogurt smoothie is a good example. That different consistency makes a very satisfying and tasty treat.
Its also easy to turn this Greek yogurt smoothie treat into a nutrition powerhouse just by adding a tablespoon of Chia seed. Chia is a natural seed that adds a large measure of nutrition including heart healthy, cholesterol fighting omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants. Even better, unlike Flax, Chia doesn’t have a taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.
