This recipe is simple and pairs very nicely with the sweet taste of the fruit of your choice. The yogurt not only makes the protein fruit dip creamy but also provides you with B12, calcium, and potassium.
B12 gives you energy and supports healthy brain function. Calcium is great for your bones and also for keeping fit. It helps regulate the hormone cortisol which, when elevated, can cause the body to store fat. Potassium helps balance out the sodium in your body.
All good things, right? Plus, protein helps repair tissue, make lean muscle and is vital for cell growth.
While the Greek yogurt has protein, the addition of protein powder adds in even more vitamins and minerals and dietary fiber. Plus it helps with the taste of the plain yogurt, which can really be an acquired taste. Once you put it all together, you have very healthy snack.
Trying to get a good balance of protein and carbohydrates can be a challenge. So many foods contain insane amounts of carbs, but not much protein. When that happens, you get a huge burst of energy and then your body sees a sugar spike and releases insulin to bring it back down. That is known as the sugar crash.
When you balance out your carbs with protein you can get long-lasting energy, and best of all, no crash. Plus you will feel fuller, longer.
