5 Fast and Healthy Smoothie Recipes with Yogurt (no protein powder needed)

about

Are you trying to eat healthier? Do you need a quick breakfast? Would you like to switch on your usual snack after training? With these delicious and healthy smoothie recipes, we can do it all!

This week I share a different smoothie recipe every day. All are made with yogurt to keep you full (it's filled with protein) and fruit to sweeten the deal! Plus some other healthy ingredients for another delicious smoothie Monday through Friday!

An 8-ounce serving of vanilla yogurt contains approximately 10 g of protein. And the addition of whole grain products (from the quick-cooking oats), fruits containing fiber that sweeten the smoothie, and healthy fats (from nuts and chia seeds) contribute to a healthy and filling breakfast to take away. I have found that if I have a good amount of protein and fat at breakfast or after exercise, I am satiated longer than with a light snack or something that is not balanced in this way.

Yogurt has:

Protein that helps build and repair muscle tissue

Calcium and phosphorus that help build and maintain strong bones and teeth

Riboflavin and pantothenic acid, which help your body use carbohydrates, fats and proteins as fuel

Vitamin B12, which contributes to normal blood function and the health of the nervous system

Zinc, which helps maintain a healthy immune system
