I am starting to love smoothies. You can tell that I’m telling the truth because I chose to enjoy smoothies over hot cocoa or tea while it is not officially spring yet here in Chicagoland. It is around 28F this morning, but I don’t mind having this rich and satisfying Strawberry Greek Yogurt Smoothie.
You might be asking what influenced me to make some smoothies at this time. If it was summer, or if the weather is somewhat hot and humid — then it is quite understandable. You see, strawberry is one of my favorite fruits. I usually get real fresh ones whole year round except winter. It happened that my local grocery store (the nearest is Jewel-Osco after Dominics’s permanently closed not so long ago) started to sell fresh strawberries. I got more than I can handle — that is the reason why I though of making smoothies out of the surplus (so to speak), and I enjoy every sip of it.
I used to make regular fruit smoothies — you know, fruits plus sugar and milk. I heard from a friend that yogurt smoothies are becoming a trend and greek yogurt smoothies are the favorites. After trying some yogurt smoothie recipes, I tried to tweak the ingredients and measurements according to my own taste preference. This Strawberry Greek Yogurt Smoothie recipe is one of the recipes that I improvised. I think that this is awesome!
Have you tried making yogurt smoothies before? What fruits are your favorites? If you have tips to share, I love to hear it.
