plain Greek yogurt
frozen mango chunks
vanilla whey protein powder
fresh mint leaves, or more to taste
In my experience frozen strawberries aren't very sweet (unless you freeze them yourself at the peak of ripeness) so I didn't have high hopes for a sweet smoothie since this called for no sweetener AND plain Greek yogurt but the vanilla whey protein powder had just enough in it to make it the perfect sweetness. I chose to replace the milk with water since it called for both yogurt and protein powder. I also cut the yogurt to 1/2 cup (I tend to think greek yogurt is quite tart). Milk, protein powder and yogurt seemed like protein overkill for me. I didn't have mint in my garden so I skipped that also. The smoothie is VERY thick from the frozen fruit. Even my Vitamix needed a little attention to get ingredients to blend but adding more liquid would help solve this problem. I chose to give it a little time and use the tamper to push the ingredients into the blades. This may be a problem with a regular blender so letting the fruit thaw a bit before blending would be helpful. This smoothie turned out very tasty. I enjoyed it!
