Strawberry Power Smoothie

This Strawberry Power Smoothie made with Greek yogurt, peanut butter, and strawberries is a delicious way to start your day.

Homemade Strawberry Power Smoothies

I have a bit of a sweet tooth and I like to enjoy a “treat” that is packed with fruit and tastes good.  This smoothie satisfies my craving for sweets but doesn’t leave me hungry.

Yogurt, frozen strawberries, banana, and peanut butter for making a smoothie

To make it, I use Yoplait Greek 100 calorie yogurt for the base.  (Greek yogurt is high in protein which helps promote fullness.)  I add a little peanut butter for additional protein, some honey for a little natural sweetness, a cup of frozen strawberries, and a medium banana which helps make the smoothie creamy.

almond milk

Oh – I almost forgot to mention that I add 1/2  cup vanilla almond milk to help make the smoothie – well, smooth.  Otherwise it would be too thick to drink.

mixing ingredients in a blender to make a smoothie

I place all of the ingredients in a blender and whirl away.  In just a short while I have a nice, tangy smoothie that’s delicious.  My daughter thinks it is a little deceptive, because although you see the strawberries, you taste more of the peanut butter.  They are both great tastes to me, especially when they are mixed into Greek yogurt.

Tips for Staying on Track

Sometimes we all need a reminder of ways to stick to our diet. Below are four tips that work for me:

  • Drink water.  LOTS of water.  It is easy to feel “hungry” when our bodies are actually dehydrated.
  • Create a playlist with music that energizes you – that makes you want to get up and GO!  Put it on your smart phone, plug-in your earphones, and go for a walk.
  • Buy fruit and vegetables and have them ready to go.  Chop, slice, and dice then store in your fridge so that you always have something healthy to eat.
  • Stock up on canned and frozen veggies.  Vegetables are full of fiber and vitamins and are low in calories.

I would make the Chicken & Wild Rice with Progresso, Smoked Turkey & Lentil Vegetable Soup from Green Giant and the Salted Caramel Yogurt Dip from Yoplait.

Ooooh, this smoothie sounds so good! Smoothies are my go-to for an easy snack or meal replacement. I'm always looking for new ideas.

I'm a sucker for a good smoothie. This one seems to be a great meal replacement, and I love strawberries.
