What is Greek yogurt?

Greek, or strained, yogurt isn’t just a fad. This dairy product, which is different from regular, sweeter yogurt, has quadrupled in production from 2008 to 2013. Greek yogurt makers add an extra step to their process so that excess water, lactose, and minerals drain out. What’s left is a creamy, rich yogurt with less sugar, more carbs, and a tart taste. The acidity also makes it easier for your body to absorb other nutrients. Health Line

Plain Greek yogurt is a nutrient-packed snack that has many health benefits. Read on to discover the benefits of adding Greek yogurt to your diet. An average serving, depending on the brand, can have 12 to 17.3 grams of protein.

This yogurt smoothie tastes fantastic as is. But if you’d like, you can add some nuance in flavor. Here are a few more add ins we’d suggest:

  • Almond or cashew butter. Want to pack in even more protein? Add nut butter for an even more filling snack. The flavors of cashew or almond go well here.
  • Mint or basil. Add a few fresh mint or basil leaves for an herbaceous spin.
  • Ginger. Add ½ teaspoon grated ginger to the mix for a spicy brightness.
  • Coconut. Throw in a handful of coconut (or toasted coconut).
  • Vanilla. Use ¼ to ½ teaspoon vanilla to add complexity.
