Greek Yogurt Blackberry Smoothie; of course it will work with regular yogurt too but Greek yogurt gives the mix more body.
Ever wonder what the difference between “Greek” yogurt and regular yogurt is? Greek yogurt (also called strained yogurt, yogurt cheese, or “labneh” ) is simply yogurt that has been strained through a filter to remove the whey. The result is a yogurt that is creamier and not as sweet as regular yogurt with about half the sugar content.
Blackberries are not a true berry in the botanical sense. Technically it is classified as an aggregate fruit made up of druplets. Nutritionally speaking, blackberries offer a good way to get dietary fiber, vitamin C and vitamin K. And, as a bonus, they taste great too.
