Strawberry Yogurt Smoothie

Pin It
There is nothing better than a fresh creamy smoothie for breakfast in the morning. It's a clean way to start the morning and a delicious one at that too so when my mother bought me the most kitchen sexy, industrial size blender for my birthday I was ecstatic to get going on my smoothie ideas.
So I clearly threw a few things in the blender over the past couple of weeks but this combination wowed me with a satisfaction and smile like no other. We are big fans of the Chobani yogurts because they are lower in sugar than other brands and massively higher in protein so you stay fuller, longer. We also love the Almond Milks for the same reason, remembering my Strawberry Vanilla Lassi {so good}.

So with a combination of my favorite flavors in the fridge came this fabulous smoothie, high in protein, nutrients and flavor.
PS, on top of loving smoothies, I kinda have a small obsession with Mason jars. {kinda small=massive}
It's a thing... they are so cute and so unbelievable functional.
Breakfast this morning was amazing. My smoothie was creamy, just the right amount of sweetness from the strawberries and yogurt and went down 'smooth'. 

haha, get it! {i'm corny}

Even better, breakfast took only 3 minutes total to put together (and I am really stretching my time here) and I was ready to hit the road. A great way to start the day and keep you on that healthy track. Nomm Nom Nommmm! Loved it, and of course so did the boy.

1 Chobani strawberry greek yogurt 
2 tbsp orange juice 
1 handful (1-1 1/4 cup) frozen strawberries

Put all ingredients in a blender and crush until smooth.

Garnish with fresh strawberries.

I couldn't take another picture until I took a heaping slurp of this bad boy. It was so fruity-delicious.


What are your favorite smoothie blends?

OMG. I am absolutely OBSESSED with smoothies. I eat them for breakfast, lunch and sometimes even dinner! I recently made a smoothie just like yours and stuck it in a bowl and topped it with granola. Delish!

Laura, this smoothie looks so yummy and that picture of you is so cute! My favorite smoothie combination is watermelon, strawberry and banana but I think this is giving my favorite a run for its money! Thanks for sharing. You have a beautiful blog and I'm glad to have found it!
