Recipes: The Cinnamon-Cheerio-Flax Greek Yogurt Parfait

Between granola, faux fruit, and disgusting artificial syrups, most yogurt parfaits are unhealthy sugar-filled abominations. We reconstructed the yogurt parfait from the ground up and created one of the most unbelievably healthy super-concoctions on earth — the Cinnamon-Cheerio-Flax Greek Yogurt Parfait.

This big, beautiful, layered masterpiece starts with a foundation of creamy, protein-rich 2% FAGE Greek Yogurt and ascends skyward with strata of flax seed, Cheerios, and a drizzle of fluffy cinnamon. It’s a tower of the most powerful superfoods on earth — dive in, mix it up, and watch the stellar health benefits pour straight into your belly.

 

 

The Cinnamon-Cheerio-Flax Greek Yogurt Parfait

 

Cook Time: 2 minutes
Servings: 1

 

Directions

Empty one 2% FAGE Total Greek Yogurt into the bottom of a parfait/small glass.

Add 2 tbsp. fresh ground flax seeds followed by 1/4 cup of original Cheerios.

Sprinkle with a few healthy shakes of enjoy. Mix, stir, and enjoy.

 

 

 

Ingredients:
  • 1 FAGE Total 2% Greek Yogurt — it packs 20 grams of HQ protein and 20% DV calcium.
  • 2 Tbsp. Ground Flax Seed (I recommend Spectrum Organic Flax Seed) — flax seeds are one of the most ridonkulouly healthy foods on earth. One 2 tbsp serving contains 2.7 g of heart-healthy, anti-inflammatory omega 3’s, 3 g of protein, 4 g of waist-friendly fiber, and only 1 g of net carbs.
  • 1/4 Cup Original Cheerios — a classic that remains a top cereal option. They’re essentially oats in O form. Low in sugar and fat, high in fiber, minimal additives, and made primarily with low GI oats/whole grains.
  • Cinnamon — a brown, magical miracle powder. It adds sweetness — yet has no calories — is a ridiculously potent antioxidant, helps control blood sugar levels, and can reduce arthritis pain.

    All of the major cereal manufacturers (Kellogg’s, Big G, and Post) use preservatives and genetically-modified ingredients in their products. Why would you want a big bowl full of BHA and BHT? PLEASE, read the labels of the food you’re eating. If you don’t know what something is, Google it. You’ll most likely see that it is a food additive that has bad health effects.

    As for the yogurts, Chobani uses genetically-modified ingredients, too. Better to stick with organic brands like Stonyfield. All of the crap in processed foods will keep you from losing weight and gaining muscle.
