I was so excited about this strawberry & Greek yogurt smoothie that I wanted to share the recipe with you guys. As with most smoothies, the recipe isn’t rocket science. A few ingredients, water or plant-based milk, a good blend and that’s all you need. I’ve been making the usual banana & strawberry smoothie for a while, but this is different! ‘Good’ different. The maca powder is completely optional, but if you’re a fan of maca powder just like I am, you’ll probably love adding it in.
So let’s get to it!
Prep time: 5 min
Yields: 1l or 4 servings
- 7-8 srawberries
- ½ cup frozen berries
- 50g Greek Yogurt
- 1 Tbsp honey
- 1 tsp maca powder
- 3 glasses of water
Add all the solid ingredients into the blender, then add the water and blend well.
If you like a thicker consistency, then feel free to only add 2 glasses of water or even a glass of plant-based milk & a glass of water. I didn’t have any milk, so I just added water and the smoothie was lighter & delicious.
Strawberries are probably the most popular summer fruit, but how many of us know their amazing health benefits? Strawberries are rich in fibre, vitamin C, K, folic acid, potassium and manganese. Strawberries improve the heart function by improving blood flow and they are also rich in antioxidants. Strawberries also contain salicylic acid and a strawberry mask can reduce hyperpigmentation and also prevent acne. They are also good for your digestive system, preventing constipation.
Greek Yogurt is known to have a lot more protein than milk. Consuming a good amount of protein can reduce cravings by making us feel fuller for longer. Greek yogurt is also rich in probiotics which help keep your stomach and gut healthy. Greek yogurt is also rich in calcium, potassium and vitamin B12, which help blood cells to form, brain functions, and DNA synthesis.
