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!
Here’s my Power Parfait blueprint:
- ¾ cup yogurt
- ¼ cup plain oats
- 1 teaspoon chia seeds
- Small scoop of protein powder
- Splash or two of homemade nut milk or water
- ¾ cup fresh berries or other chopped fruit
- ¼ cup low-sugar granola
