Hey all! So I am finally back with some great new ideas. Here is one that is so delicious. I will give you warning though, it is quite tart, likely due to the large amount of plain Greek yogurt. My mango was a little under ripe, if you were to use a really ripe mango it might help but if you make this as is, don't be expecting anything sweet. You could always add a packet or 2 of splenda to sweeten things up.
So, nearly all of my previous smoothies had protein powder in them. While you will still see smoothies that contain protein powder I am looking to obtain more protein from the Greek yogurt, instead of from the protein that has tons of other gunk I can't even pronounce in it. The protein powder I use, Deisgner Whey has like 20g of protein for 1 scoop and 2p+, the 1C of Greek yogurt I used in this recipe has 19g of protein and 3p+. I weighed heavily on this decision but decided that since I normally use 2p+ for protein and 1p+ for 1/3C regular yogurt, the 3p+ for Greek was the way to go.
So finally, here's the recipe:
1C minute maid light OJ, 1p+
1C non fat plain greek yogurt, 3p+
1 banana, 0p+
1 mango, chopped, 0p+
6 chunks frozen pineapple, 0p+
2 cups spinach, 0p+
Place ingredients in blender in order shown and blend til smooth.
Yield: 1 | 4p+
