One Smoothie a Day Challenge Day Five: Greek Mango Smoothie

greek mango smoothie

This is the first smoothie during this challenge made out of yogurt, more specific Greek yogurt. Using milk or yogurt in a smoothie always sounded weird to me, drinking yogurt especially. I remember being in Istanbul and not liking ayran - Turkish yogurt drink - at all, just sounds weird. But hey, it`s never too late to change your mind about things, because this smoothie made out of fresh mango and Greek yogurt just was incredibly sweet and good. No interfering of the yogurt with the fruity taste. I kind of wish I would have made this discovery at the beginning of this challenge. What`s your opinion on using yogurt for smoothies or drinks? Do you even like it? Would you rather go for milk or yogurt?

What you need (for one smoothie):
  • 1 mango, organic 
  • 150g Greek yogurt, organic
  • 100ml water
  • halve the mango, scoop out the flesh
  • add all the ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth
  • serve immediately or refrigerate for 30 minutes before drinking
Whilst typing this post, I`m already thinking about new smoothie combinations that would work with plain yogurt. Maybe cucumbers, bananas, spinach, oranges or pineapples... What do you think? Any suggestions?

Read you soon,
