Siggi's is an Icelandic-style yogurt, made from grass-fed cows and non-GMO verified. It's a strained yogurt, which means it's thick and creamy and provides lots of protein. I especially love their plain, whole milk yogurt.
That 4% milkfat Siggi's yogurt is what I used for this rich and tasty smoothie. The yogurt (11 grams of protein), combined with the ricotta (9 grams) and milk (2 grams), and even strawberries (1 gram) mean that this smoothie provides 23 grams of protein. It's a fantastic breakfast or post-workout treat.
Roasting strawberries gives them an amazing depth of flavor—don't skip that step! It makes the berries taste like a not-too-sweet jam.
- 8 ounces strawberries, hulled and quartered
- 2 teaspoons honey
- 1/2 cup plain yogurt
- 1/3 cup ricotta (try my easy homemade version)
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
- pinch of sea salt
- 1/2 cup ice cubes
- additional honey, to taste (optional)
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Spread strawberries in a single layer on a parchment paper-covered baking sheet. Drizzle with honey and toss to coat.
Roast strawberries for about 15 minutes until slightly caramelized and a bit shriveled. Let them cool.
Place cooled berries, yogurt, ricotta, milk, vanilla, lemon zest, and salt into your blender. Blend until creamy. Add ice and blend again until smooth and frothy. Taste and add honey, if desired.
You can top with additional lemon zest and a drizzle of honey, if you'd like. Then drink up!
