This strawberry Greek yogurt smoothie recipe is the best way to enjoy strawberries and increase your protein intake. Greek yogurt, one of its basic ingredients, is full of proteins. This strawberry Greek yogurt smoothie is a refreshing snack for any time of the day. Ideal to have it before and after your gym workout.

Strawberries are packed with health benefits. They have much more to offer beyond their sweet flavor. Compared to other fruits, they seem to have the highest amount of nutrients. Plus, they are low in calories and high in fiber. One cup of strawberries contains only 54 calories. Strawberries contain potassium, vitamin K, and magnesium. These minerals and vitamins are important for bone health. They also help burn stored fat. Their red color contains a substance named anthocyanins. This, according to research, seems to stimulate the burning of stored fat. Strawberries also help you look younger. They are filled with biotin, which helps build strong hair and nails. Strawberries also contain antioxidant ellagic acid. This protects the elastic fibers in our skin to prevent sagging. Finally, strawberries are good for weight loss! The compound nitrate found in strawberries promotes blood flow and oxygen in our body, which is great for weight loss. So, combining strawberries with Greek yogurt may be one of the best things to do for your health!
