Hello !!!

I was craving for some dessert this weekend. I had a few ingredients in my pantry and viola i came up with a yummy and healthy Smoothie bowl with the goodness of Mango , greek yogurt, honey and organic dried Mulberries.Yogurt is a staple at my place. An important part of our daily diet.

Yogurt is extremely versatile. You can dip it, spread it, freeze it, add fruit to it or eat it plain. Yogurt is often included on healthy food lists and for a good reason. Yogurt is highly nutritious and is an excellent source of protein, calcium and potassium. It provides numerous vitamins and minerals and is relatively low in calories. The difference between yogurt and Greek yogurt is that Greek yogurt is more creamier as it is strained thrice compared to the normal yogurt.

Here are some other ideas:

1.Make a breakfast parfait by layering yogurt, dry cereal or granola, and topping with your favorite fruit

2.Top waffles or pancakes with yogurt and sliced strawberries

3.Enjoy a mid-day snack by blending yogurt, fruit and juice to make a delicious smoothie

4.Dip raw vegetables in plain yogurt

5.Use yogurt for salad dressing and dips

6.Serve plain yogurt on quesadillas, tacos, soups and chili—as an alternative to sour cream

Today I am sharing a healthy recipe for Mango yogurt smoothie bowl which can be whipped up in just 5 mins and can satisfy your sweet cravings and hunger pangs.By adding some cornflakes or Museli you can serve it as breakfast too.
