Banana Greek Yogurt Smoothie – A Healthy Yogurt Smoothie Recipe

I am a banana addict! So, if you are like me and you have a lot of ripe (or not) bananas, worry no more! It is time you start making smoothies! Smoothies are thick shake drinks filled with fruits or vegetables and other nutrient dense ingredients. Greek yogurt is one of best ingredients you could use for your smoothie as it adds creaminess and nutritional value!  Loaded with proteins, this banana Greek yogurt smoothie is one of my favorite ones!

This banana Greek yogurt smoothie is a truly excellent option for a meal or a snack as it keeps your empty stomach satisfied and make you feel full longer between meals. I usually drink it right before and after my gym workout. Research finding suggests that consuming yogurt smoothies may increase your energy levels, decrease your recovery time and result in fewer aches and pains. Plus, it’s a fast and easy way to eat fruits!

Nevertheless, banana Greek yogurt smoothie has additional extra benefits. First, it is full of protein and gym experts say you need to increase your protein intake before and after your workout! Greek yogurt smoothies are one of the supreme natural ways to acquire excellent quality protein. I prefer zero fat Greek Yogurt as 100 grams contains 10 gr of protein and 4 gr of carbs. This is priceless!

Banana, on the other hand, replenishes the energy you lost during a workout. Moreover, it has no fat, cholesterol and sodium. Plus, it is full of potassium, dietary fiber, manganese, and vitamins B6 & C.

Finally, try using stevia instead of sugar. This will sweet your banana Greek yogurt smoothie with fewer calories! Delicious and healthy! This delicious banana Greek yogurt smoothie recipe takes less than 20 minutes to prepare.
