This berry combo is my current favorite morning energizer! It is a super simple recipe but it packs a punch of nutritional benefits including healthy doses of Vitamin B and C, as well as fiber, potassium, calcium, and probiotic bacteria to support a healthy functioning digestive system. It also makes for an excellent post-workout treat!
Here is the quick and easy ingredients:
1 cup milk (I like Almond!)
1/2 cup plain yogurt (I substitute Greek)
1 whole banana
1 cup of your favorite berries (I use strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries)
Cinnamon to your liking
Pour milk into the blender, followed by the yogurt. Add the peeled banana, then blend the mixture. Once the banana is completely blended, add the frozen berries, as well as the cinnamon, if you desire!
Makes one large serving.
Nutrition Tip of the Day
Take Care of Your Gut Health With Probiotics and Fiber! The bacteria in your gut, collectively called the gut microbiota, are sometimes referred to as the “forgotten organ.” These gut bugs are incredibly important for all sorts of health-related aspects. A disruption in the gut bacteria is linked to some of the world’s most serious chronic diseases, including obesity. A good way to improve gut health, is to eat probiotic foods, such as live yogurt and sauerkraut, take probiotic supplements, and eat plenty of fiber. Fiber functions as fuel for the gut bacteria.
