    I was wondering is it really 1 1/4 cup of Greek yoghurt per serving?

    It was a typo and it has been fixed to reflect 1/4 cup of Greek yogurt. Thank you for letting us know!

    This is a delicious smoothie. It was almost as if I was drinking a milkshake. I didn't have frozen raspberries, so I used strawberries instead. I also use macadamia milk instead of almond milk. I also added in coconut oil to make it more filling. The only thing I'll do differently next time is to get the ice crushed up more. I wanted to drink this through a straw and it just wouldn't with the ice chunks. It was very good though and filling!

    Where is the coconut mentioned in the blurb? "Flavorful raspberries meet their match when combined with coconut".....is it when you add an extra spoon of oil?

    This was nice, but the raspberry seed fell to the bottom resulting in a last mouthful full of pips!!

    Dr Fung says not to do processed foods and not to use any kind of sweeteners so it drives me crazy when recipes on this site use protein powders and stevia. This recipe is great without those two things. You can use unsweetened toasted coconut almond milk for some sweetness if needed or even a little coconut butter which has an amazing sweet flavor.

    Most of the smoothies here do not have the protein powder or the sweetener if that's what you prefer. You could also omit them from this recipe. You may prefer these instead:

    This recipe doesn’t have any Greek yogurt in the ingredient list? I’m confused re: the first questions about the yogurt.

    This recipe doesn’t have any Greek yogurt in the ingredient list? I’m confused re: the first questions about the yogurt.

    That question has to do with the Tip listed below the recipe:
    "Tip!

    I just finished this delicious smoothie.
    I omitted the whey powder and replaced it with 1tblsp. Chia seeds, 1 tblsp hemp seeds, 1 tblsp ground flax seed. I need this fibre content to prevent constipation. Would you please let me know the nutrition breakdown. I have been using my own made up recipe of a chocolate chia pudding but am terrible at figuring out nutrition data. This one is preferable as it is from DD with slight modification.
    Thank you so much.

    You can use the nutrition labels on the brands of ingredients you used to determine the carbs, protein and fat in the ingredients you used.

    I loved this. I’m not usually a fan of smoothies but looking to change things up a bit thought I’d give this a try - and was pleasantly surprised. I’ve only just finished drinking it and feel pleasantly full. I’ll see how hungry I feel (or not) a little bit later...
    I follow Dr Fung and in principle agree with the comment above (#85 by Lana) but occasionally I personally find bending those rules very slightly has helped me to stay on track. What works for some really doesn’t work for others so it’s a bit of trial and error to find your own tolerance levels. Another great recipe Diet Doctor. Thank you!
