Many patrons that approach the counter at their local Pinkberry frozen yogurt shop ask the same question: “what’s the difference between a Greek yogurt smoothie and a plain yogurt one? Here, their scoopers explain the difference.
Greek yogurt and traditional frozen yogurt share a few similarities. First, they’re both low in calories and packed with live bacterial cultures that promote healthy digestion. Both yogurts also give Pinkberry smoothies their refreshing, tart taste.
The main difference lies in how each product is made. Unlike its traditional counterpart, Greek yogurt undergoes a special straining process, ridding the products of liquid whey, lactose, and sugar, giving it a much thicker consistency. Because of this process, Greek yogurt also contains more protein per serving, with 11 grams packed into every Pinkberry smoothie.
They may have their differences, but that doesn’t mean frozen yogurt and Greek yogurt smoothies aren’t equally delicious. Try both for yourself at your nearest Pinkberry!
