Smoothie recipes with yogurt are some of the best around. There is a whole wide world of yogurt flavors and consistency to choose from as your base ingredient. And there aren’t a lot of fruits that don’t mix up with yogurt really well.
This recipe combines both Strawberries and Pears with yogurt to produce a really tasty and healthy smoothie.
Its also easy to turn this fruit 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.
This one is really easy to make. In your favorite blender mix:
- 1 pear, cored and cut
- ¼ cup of strawberries fresh or frozen
- ½ cup of low-fat yogurt (vanilla or pear)
- ¼ cup of milk (2%, low-fat or soy)
- 2 teaspoons honey
- 1 tbsp. Chia seed
- Ice to taste
