Which Yogurt Makes The Best (and Healthiest) Strawberry Banana Smoothie?

I’ve been really into smoothies for breakfast lately. If made correctly, they’re super healthy and they keep me full until lunch.

But if you’re concerned at all about your sugar or caloric intake, you need to be careful about what kind of yogurt you use – so many of them are loaded with sugar!

I almost bought a brand that I thought looked healthy but when I read the nutrition label it had more sugar than a Snicker’s bar!

No thanks…. If I’m going to eat that much sugar I’d rather just have the Snicker’s bar.  🙂

If you want to be super healthy, use plain Greek yogurt but I just can’t stomach that stuff. I have to have some flavor in there.

I use the Chobani 0% Vanilla greek yogurt. Instead of buying the fruit flavored yogurt – which is loaded with sugar – I buy vanilla yogurt and add fresh fruit to the smoothie. Choose whichever fruit combination you like. Lately I’ve been doing strawberry-banana or strawberry-mango – my recipe is below. Enjoy!
