Smoothie Recipe

I've been changing up a few things in the kitchen. I've recently purchased this Zoi plain nonfat Greek yogurt. I have yet to find a Greek yogurt I like to eat straight from the carton. So, I've been adding 1/4 cup of this to make a smoothie and it is working out really good.

I like to make a smoothie high in protein after a run and this recipe has about 26 grams of protein. The Greek yogurt increases my calcium intake, which my doctor says I need more of.

  • 1/2 cup partially frozen Zoi nonfat plain Greek yogurt 
  • 1/2 banana 
  • 1/4c unsweetened vanilla almond milk 
  • 1/4 cup frozen mixed berries, or peaches, strawberries or whatever you have on hand 
  • 1 scoop Whey protein, vanilla flavored 
Blend, drink, enjoy.

 283 calories, 42 carbs, 5 fat, 26g protein

The nonfat Zoi is not gluten free, (because of the maltodextrin) but the full fat is gluten free.

Have a healthy weekend!!


  1. Yum on the recipe! I love Greek yogurt. One thing I sometimes do is add a couple drops of NuNaturals Vanilla stevia to the plain. Cuts that "bitter" taste.

  2. I may have to try that. I eat the Fage brand from Safeway and NOW WINCO....wahooo...or the "greek" brand from Fred Meyer as the protein to Carb ratios is much larger..I cannot eat it straight as too bitter.

  3. I didn't know that about gluten and the yogurt but I am off dairy right now so I am using almond milk yogurt in my smoothies

  4. Sounds great! I will have to try this recipe. We love the Zoi nonfat, too!
