Mango Peach Smoothie with Dannon Oikos Greek Yogurt

September 2, 2011 · 5 comments

I wrote this post while participating in a blog tour conducted by Clever Girls on behalf of Dannon. I have been compensated for my time commitment to the program but my opinions are my own.

It is time to get healthy, with a happy tummy!  I was asked by Clever Girls Collective to share a healthy recipe with the delicious Dannon Oikos Greek Yogurt.  Healthy + Greek Yogurt = Fun!

I was inspired after I took a trip to the local farmers market last week, and picked up a lot of delicious fresh vegetables and fruit.  What better way to create a healthy recipe, then with fresh and local?

When I was thinking about a healthy recipe, my mind went right to a smoothie.  A breakfast that would be filling, satisfying, and well give you a happy tummy!  For some reason, I always add strawberries and bananas to a smoothie.  This time with peaches still being in season here in the South.  Let’s change it up a bit!

The other day I read about adding a grain to your smoothie.  That just made so much sense!  You can use oats, millet, quinoa….the options are endless!  Here is a recipe shared by The Spicy RD, she made a delicious mango smoothie with millet.

If you know me, you know I love Greek yogurt!  Greek yogurt has a gorgeous texture, and is unique compared to regular yogurt.  Dannon® Oikos® is created through an authentic Greek straining process which gives it a rich and creamy-thick texture.  I really loved the flavor of this Greek yogurt, and it complimented my smoothie perfectly!

Mango Peach Smoothie

1 cup almond milk

1/2 cup (one container) plain Dannon Oikos Greek Yogurt

1 mango roughly cut up, freeze overnight

1 peach roughly cut up, freeze overnight

2 Tbsp local honey

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/3 cup cooked oats

Directions:

In blender – Add milk, yogurt, and fruit, and blend well.  Add honey, cinnamon, and oats, blend.

Note – The oats will give it a thick texture, so you may choose to add more milk.
