Greek yogurt is one of a woman’s best food friends. It contains probiotic cultures and is lower in lactose and has twice the protein content of regular yogurts. It is also the perfect ingredient if you want your smoothies to be luscious and creamy. Using Greek yogurt in your smoothies takes them to another level of deliciousness and healthiness.
