Our Peach, Cherry and Oat Parfait Smoothie is the perfect way to start your day. We chose only the most nutrient-dense ingredients for this yogurt smoothie so you can charge into your day filled with vim and vigor.
Oats contain a fiber called beta-glucan that can improve your well-being on multiple levels. They make a particularly wonderful addition to a breakfast smoothie, since beta-glucan stimulates the release of hormones associated with satiety and appetite control. You can say goodbye to mid-morning hunger attacks!
Since they rank fairly low on the glycemic index, cherries don’t cause your blood sugar levels to spike and drop the way higher sugar fruits can. They’re also a great source of antioxidants that can help prevent or treat conditions such as heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, and migraines.
Delightfully sweet peaches contain rich stores of vitamin A, beta-carotene, vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, B vitamins, folate, calcium, potassium, magnesium, iron, manganese, and zinc. They’re also low in calories and a good source of fiber.
We rounded out our parfait smoothie with almond milk, yogurt, and a heaping tablespoon of flaxseed. Blend them all together into a portable power smoothie that makes the ideal sidekick for handling the most hectic days in your week.
