This delicious light breakfast or snack is red, white and blue—and good for you, too. Eating colorful produce is a great way to get plenty of nutrients and make your meals look enticing. Bright red berries, for instance, are a good source of the heart-healthy antioxidants anthocyanins. Bananas provide you with blood-pressure-balancing potassium. And beautiful blueberries are a top source of anti-inflammatory flavonoids.
Whether it’s the Fourth of July or any other day, you’ll love this patriotic parfait.
