Apple And Yogurt Smoothie Benefits

Breakfast Apple Yogurt Smoothie

This weight loss breakfast smoothie has so many benefits, thanks to the wonderful array of ingredients.

From offering fiber, gut-friendly properties, protein, and complex carbs, to boosting immunity and more!

Some of the main benefits of this smoothie include:

  • Rich in Protein and Calcium: The Greek yogurt and low-fat milk contribute to the protein and calcium content. 
  • High in Dietary Fiber: The apple and chia seeds provide a good amount of dietary fiber. Fiber aids in digestion helps maintain a healthy gut and can contribute to feelings of fullness, which is helpful for weight loss.
  • Antioxidant Properties: Apples contain antioxidants, which are compounds that fight against oxidative stress and inflammation in the body. 
  • Natural Energy Boost: The natural sugars in the apple and the honey provide a quick source of energy, making this smoothie a good choice for a morning or pre-workout drink.
  • Heart Health Benefits: Chia seeds are a source of omega-3 fatty acids known for their health benefits, including potentially lowering the risk of heart disease.
  • Rich in Vitamins and Minerals: This smoothie is a good source of essential vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin C (from the apple), Vitamin D, Vitamin B-12 (from the dairy products), and iron (from the chia seeds).
  • Blood Sugar Management: The combination of fiber (from the apple and chia seeds) and protein (from the yogurt and milk) can help in the slow release of sugars into the bloodstream, aiding in better blood sugar control.
  • Immune System Support: Vitamins like Vitamin C and other antioxidants in the smoothie can support the immune system.

I have so many other breakfast smoothies you should try too, like: my protein breakfast smoothie for weight loss and my Greek yogurt breakfast weight loss smoothie.

Both of these smoothies have just as many benefits as this yogurt and apple smoothie!

Recipe Variations & Tips

The main 2 components of this recipe are the yogurt and apples

From there, you can get so creative and add other ingredients that align with your goals and taste. 

I tested several variations, which I will share below. You might like them better!

  1. Add More Protein: A scoop of protein powder can add another 15-20g of protein to this smoothie.
  2. Berry Twist: Double down on fruits and add 1/3 cup of frozen berries to your smoothie.
  3. Nut Butter Boost: Add 1 tablespoon of almond butter or peanut butter to the smoothie. This addition not only enhances the flavor but also adds healthy fats and extra protein, making the smoothie more filling and nutritious.
  4. Tropical Touch: Mix in 1/2 cup of chopped pineapple or mango to bring a tropical flair to your smoothie. These fruits add a sweet, tangy taste and are rich in vitamins like Vitamin C and digestive enzymes, particularly beneficial for gut health.
  5. Green Goodness: Include a handful of spinach or kale. These leafy greens are virtually tasteless in the smoothie but pack a nutritional punch with additional fiber, iron, and a host of vitamins.
  6. Oatmeal Upgrade: Stir in 1/4 cup of raw oats before blending. Oats will thicken the smoothie, provide a boost of dietary fiber, and offer a sustained energy release. 

You can try your variations and twists, the above have been tested, however, and they work very well with the apple and yogurt!

Recipe Tips:

  1. Do not peel the skin of the apple: Apple skin contains many nutrients, especially fiber. 
  2. Add the apple and yogurt first to the blender: Apples are difficult to blend, which is why you want them as close to the blender blades as possible.
  3. Blend for a minimum of 2-3 minutes: You want to make sure the apple is nicely blended and incorporated into the smoothie.

How Do I Make This Smoothie Vegan?

To make the smoothie vegan, swap the dairy yogurt for a vegan alternative (I like coconut yogurt) and the honey for agave or maple syrup!

How Much Weight Can I Lose Drinking This Smoothie?

There is no right answer to this, There are chances that you won't lose any weight. This is because we are all different and have different lifestyle changes. I personally lost 0.5 pound in 7 days, drinking this smoothie daily, for breakfast, as a meal replacement.

What Can I Use Instead Of Dairy Milk?

Almond milk, oat milk and rice milk are all wonderful choices. However, plain water can work too!
