Health benefits of mandarins

Not only do mandarins taste delicious, they also offer a variety of health benefits, this sweet citrus fruit is packed with vitamins and minerals that can boost your overall well-being. 

Mandarins contain high levels of vitamin C which helps to strengthen the immune system. They’re also full of dietary fiber, have a high level of antioxidants, are a good source of vitamin A and folate.

That’s a lot of goodness packed into that small fruit!

Why we love Greek Yogurt

Low fat Greek yogurt is a great source of protein; it contains about 17 grams of protein per cup. Plus, using low-fat Greek yogurt helps cut down on unhealthy saturated fats which are bad for your heart health.

Is granola good for you?

Granola is a good source of fiber, but it can be high in fat, that’s why we chose the low fat variety for our healthy yogurt parfaits with mandarins. You can also keep a look out for the low sugar granola in stores.
