Power Parfait

This recipe, from Robyn Youkilis’s new book, is a gut-friendly way to start your day.


The​ ​Power​ ​Parfait​, like a smoothie, is a perfect vehicle for superfoods. You don’t have to miss out on the fun superfood craze just because you don’t drink a smoothie for breakfast or have a super-duper blender! This breakfast has the power to set your mornings free and is an easy, gut-friendly meal to start to your day.

The following recipe makes one serving — if you’re packing up a week’s worth, simply line up your to-go containers and measure the ingredients into each one. Feel free to switch up the fruit!

  • ¼ cup plain oats
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
  • Small scoop of protein powder
