Greek yogurt is different from regular because it has been strained through a filter (usually cloth or paper) to get rid of the whey. This increases the consistency of the yogurt, making it thicker and more substantial. So a Greek yogurt smoothie has a correspondingly thicker consistency than a smoothie made with regular yogurt. Add some fruit and you end up with a delicious and satisfying smoothie.
In this Greek yogurt smoothie the yogurt blends with a couple of popular fruits from the East. Peaches are originally native to China and Bananas are native to the tropical areas of South and Southeast Asia, most likely originating in New Guinea.
Regardless of origin, this Greek yogurt smoothie recipe is very easy to make and it satisfies completely.
1 cup of frozen banana chunks
