A refreshing post workout or afternoon snack! Packed with fruit and Greek yogurt, you and your family will all enjoy this Fruity Greek Yogurt Smoothie.

Fruity Greek Yogurt Smoothie Recipe

It’s hard to mess up a smoothie in my opinion. Once you get a basic formula down, and you’re using a blend of naturally sweet fruit with yogurt, milk or a little juice, then really the sky is the limit as far as combinations go. If you look in my freezer you could pretty much always find a few bags of frozen fruit ready to be put into a blender. Though I love to eat fresh fruit daily, frozen fruit is usually my go to when it comes to smoothies because I find that it makes them extra creamy and thick, and keeps them extra cold.

How do you make a smoothie with yogurt?

First, you need a blender! There are so many great blenders on the market these days. I’ve been using my Blendtec (affiliate link) for so many years, it’s high powered and worth the investment in my opinion (tip: buy a refurbished one if you can!). You could also use a Vitamix, Ninja, or Magic Bullet blender.

If your blender isn’t a high powered blender, then I suggest you let the frozen fruit sit in your blender jar a few minutes to defrost and slightly soften up to make it easier to blend. Always add your liquids to the jar first, then layer with your softest to hardest fruits to get a better blend.

Is Greek yogurt good in smoothies?

Yes! What I love about making smoothie recipes with Greek yogurt is the added protein. Greek yogurt typically has around 10 – 15 g of protein per half cup, depending on the brand. Depending on the flavor, it will have sugar and carbs too, so watch for that. If you are drinking a smoothie as a post workout drink your body needs the carbs so fruit and yogurt can provide them. A Greek yogurt fruit smoothie makes a great post-workout recovery drink!

 

These days, there are so many recipes that include Greek yogurt, the options are endless. I even went a little crazy and baked up a version of these Peach Yogurt Muffins for my kids (I really need to do that more often, why oh why don’t I like to bake?).

    YES! We have tons of frozen fruit on hand for smoothies too. Peach is one of my most favorite add ins (BTW – can’t wait for fresh peaches). Hooray for chobani- great source of protein and so yummy

    You’re right..it’s hard to mess up a smoothie! I love adding yogurt to mine when I want a little extra protein.

    Note to self: stock up on more frozen mango and peaches!!! About to make a similar smoothie right now. 🙂

    I love the idea of using flavored Greek yogurts in smoothies! I usually just go with plain, but definitely fun to change it up sometimes 🙂

    I love fruit smoothies with yogurt. Yum, love that yours has both mangos and peaches:)

    Yes, I agree – virtually impossible to mess up a smoothie. I’m developing smoothie recipes for a summer series and each one, I’m like “ya, there’s no way this isn’t good.” Lol. Love this one, too!

  9. Tieghan posted May 6, 2013 at 9:11 am

      Yes!!! 🙂

    We are not smoothie drinkers around here…we must have a think about chewing our food or something. I should get in the habit this summer it’s such a great way to get good “stuff” in your kiddos. I love Chobani yogurt I eat it every morning with granola. thanks for the coupons ; )

    • Aggies Kitchen posted May 7, 2013 at 12:40 pm

      I’m driven by getting good stuff in the kids so I think I make them more because of that! LOL. It’s a win win 🙂

    I never make a smoothie without Greek yogurt. This sounds so good right now!

    I love smoothies for breakfast. They are a summertime fav!

  16. Jen @ Savory Simple posted May 7, 2013 at 8:35 am

    What a perfect smoothie. I like that you used pineapple yogurt, it’s a good way to get around this issue I discovered the hard way- real pineapple and yogurt create some weird enzyme when blended that makes it pretty bitter. Kiwi does the same. Let me tell you, the kiwi pineapple smoothie I made recently was… interesting.

    • Aggies Kitchen posted May 7, 2013 at 12:37 pm

      Wow, I had no idea about that with pineapple and kiwi!! I don’t think I’ve ever added either to a smoothie (with dairy). I’m glad I know. The pineapple yogurt was a nice touch!

    Smoothies are my favorite morning sipper. This sounds so refreshing.

    I wish you’d love to bake, too! But I’ll definitely settle for all your gorgeous salads that keep my lunches delicious. 😉 Love this smoothie, now I want peaches!!

    • Aggies Kitchen posted May 8, 2013 at 1:16 pm

      I really try to love it Brenda, I do. 🙂

    Oh, this looks tasty 🙂 I love adding greek yogurt to my smoothies!

  20. Valerie @ From Valerie's Kitchen posted May 8, 2013 at 12:11 pm

    Oh, this looks SO good. I haven’t tried the pineapple flavor but it’s on my list now!
