I like recipes that are super easy but nutritious. This recipe is perfect for breakfast, snack or even dessert when you’re following a sugar-free lifestyle. The full-fat yogurt is a satisfying base, the chia seeds add extra fiber and healthy omega 3 fats and the collagen peptides add that essential protein boost to balance your blood sugar naturally along with the cinnamon. The turmeric tonic is the special superfood ingredient to provide anti-inflammatory benefits!
