Falling in between a lighter milkshake and a decadent smoothie, this sweet treat only requires 4 ingredients and makes for such a satisfying snack on a hot summer day! It’s thick and creamy while frozen and icy at the same time, all while packing a nutritional punch with lots of vitamins, protein, and fiber. (For additional creaminess, feel free to substitute a higher fat greek yogurt if that’s your preference!)
This 4 ingredient smoothie is one of my go-tos for that post-workout time of day! I love how filling, creamy, and satisfying it is, all while packing a big nutrition punch! I’ve tried lots of variations including using different yogurt varieties as well as adding in extra Sunbutter when I’m looking for something more filling, so do a taste test and adjust the ratios to your preferences!
2 Cups Frozen Strawberries
3/4 – 1 Cup Plain Greek Yogurt (nonfat or full fat both work)
1/2 Cup Apple Juice
2 Tablespoons Sunbutter (or more if you want more of the “nut butter” taste!)
Blend half of the frozen strawberries, the yogurt, and the apple juice in a blender
Once blended, add in the Sunbutter and second half of the strawberries and blend again
This high protein smoothie is nearly a milkshake it’s so thick and creamy, but that’s my preference when it’s functioning as a meal! It’s perfect as a filling breakfast, post-workout recovery fuel, or a mid-afternoon snack. If you’ve ever loved the addition of peanut butter in your smoothies, this offers a very similar flavor profile in the way that it compliments the fruit and the yogurt. The added bonuses are that it makes it more allergy friendly as well as nutritionally diverse if you’re looking to mix up your ingredients!
If you love the thick and creamy consistency of overnight oats then this will be right up your alley! It’s high in protein yet honestly tastes like eating dessert for breakfast. You only need four main ingredients and it’s oh so quick and easy!
