Fruit & Yogurt Smoothie

I was recently asked if I eat dessert all the time.  Well, during the week I follow a lower carb diet and leave the decadent desserts for the weekend...that's my free time where I do a little indulging!  So what do I treat myself to during the week?  A high protein fruit and yogurt smoothie!  It's my go-to dessert because it satisfies my sweet tooth, it's healthy and I can whip it up in no time at all.  I like to use Chobani greek yogurt for the high protein and make my own juice because I know it's 100%.  Even though this recipe calls for apple juice I've used all kinds of different fruits (even veggies).  I love this recipe and my kids ask for it all the time too.  It's a delicious way to get added protein, fruit and even veggies into our diet!

 Ingredients are as follows:

 1 C frozen berries
1/2 C Chobani greek yogurt
1 apple, juiced in a juicer
1 tsp. vanilla 
unsweetened almond milk
*optional - sweetener (splenda, honey, agave)


I like to get my ingredients together first.

Toss the berries, yogurt, apple juice, and vanilla into a cup or blender.

Add enough almond milk to cover.

Mix until smooth; taste to see if you need any sweetener.  If so, add some in and mix again.  If it's too thick, mix in more almond milk.

 Serve and enjoy!
