GREEK YOGURT SMOOTHIE- CLEAN EATING
I am not a fan of yogurt (its a texture thing) fortunately, the "texture gene" did not get passed down to my daughter. She loves it, that is until I decided not to give her yogurt loaded with high-fructose corn syrup (basically in all the "kids/fun" yogurt). I now give her Greek yogurt, loaded with protien ranging from 15 to 18 grams per six-ounce serving. Of course, she won't eat because it isn't loaded with the high-fructose corn syrup and it isn't "fun".
No worries, I have prevailed and found a way that we both enjoy eating it.
To make it "fun" for her (and me) I put it in a zip lock bag, cut off the end and pipe it on parchment paper, freeze it for about 10-20 minutes then store it in a freezer bag until we need it for smoothies. She loves to count out how many dots she is going to add to her smoothie.
This is also a great trick when you have yogurt pushing the expiration date...I find myself in that situation a lot.
