Mango Smoothie-1-12 As I’ve stated before I rarely ever eat breakfast but I do make it every single day for my husband and son. While they chow down on eggs and sausage, I am usually going over emails and checking in on social media while sipping on a cup of mocha; that’s the extent to my breakfast, some days I add fruit if I’m extra hungry. Mango Smoothie-1-8 Lately my husband has been on a health kick and has asked me to prepare healthier foods so I started switching things up a bit by adding egg white omelets, yogurt, fruit and granola bowl and smoothie to his breakfast routine. Mango Smoothie-1-17He requested a high protein shake but he’s not a fan of  powdered protein, so I used Chobani Greek Yogurt since it’s higher in protein than regular yogurt and has 40% less sugar; this is perfect because I use ripe fruits which will typically sweeten the shake.  I picked up 2 tubs of greek yogurt at Krogers, vanilla and plain, because I love how versatile those flavors are.Mango Smoothie-1-4 It is also all natural and not genetically modified. I wanted to make a shake that was heavy enough to replace breakfast so I added oats to the mixture which I was a bit skeptical about but it worked beautifully and the oats add a slightly nutty flavor. Another ingredient that I sneaked into his shake was turmeric! Yes, the same turmeric that’s used in curry and savory dishes. Mango Smoothie-1-16Turmeric is an anti-inflammatory and has many health benefits such as taming heart burn and stomach issues; it’s a win win! It also adds to the beautiful color of this smoothie! Powdered or fresh can be used in this recipe; I went with the fresh turmeric.Mango Smoothie-1-13 Ripe mango and banana added even more body and flavor to create a thick smoothie; you will need a spoon for this one. Pour it in a bowl and add more fruit and toasted coconut flakes for a hefty breakfast. 2015-08-16_18.21.21Be sure to check out your local Kroger Family of Stores September 4-6th for delicious Chobani demos in-store.

    I am such a huge fan of nice ripe mangos, I’d love to try this. But I’ve actually never used tumeric. That sounds like it would add a really unique flavor and love the health benefits. Thanks for this great recipe with Chobani greek yogurt. #client
