14 Smoothie Recipes Made With Yogurt (with Pictures) | Creamy & Delicious Ideas
Determining the right ingredients to create the perfect smoothie will likely look different for each individual making them. For some, using frozen fruit is the only way to accomplish that creamy texture, where others insist that fresh fruit is the key to vibrant flavors. But one of the biggest questions we get about smoothie ingredients is whether adding some form of dairy is necessary. If it were up to us, we would more often than not, reach for yogurt!

Below are 14 wildly exciting smoothie recipes that will convince even the skeptics that yogurt belongs in all sorts of blended drinks!
