Want to add yogurt to smoothies? Great idea. Yogurt is an ideal ingredient for smoothies because it adds a good amount of protein, which makes it a filling breakfast or snack. Greek yogurt adds a whopping 12 grams of protein per half cup. It also adds live probiotics, which can aid in gut health, as well as calcium and vitamin B-12 (source). So why not add a bit of it to your morning smoothie?

Here a few things to note about smoothie recipes with yogurt:

  • Use plain, unflavored yogurt. Flavored yogurts have added sugars and artificial flavors. All the recipes below call for plain yogurt.
  • Substitute plain yogurt for Greek if you like. Greek yogurt is thicker and makes for a creamier smoothie, but you can substitute plain yogurt if that’s what you have.
  • You can always add more! Most of the smoothie recipes below call for about 1/2 cup Greek yogurt for 2 small servings. You can always add a bit more if you want to amp the protein.
