Greek yogurt is just different enough to make it a separate food item all together. This is is one of the really good Greek yogurt smoothie recipes that includes pears and other really good stuff. It works really well as breakfast and as a mid day meal replacement. Put this one on your list to try next.
Its also easy to turn this delicious 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 noticeable taste of its own so adding it here won’t change the delicious results.
