Hello blueberry season! Full of iron, calcium, magnesium, vitamin K and zinc, blueberries also contain a wealth of antioxidants. Relatively low in sugar and high in fiber, studies have linked regular consumption of blueberries to a reduced risk of cognitive decline as well as better short-term memory. Acai berries are also low in sugar, but extremely high in antioxidants, and have been studied as possibly helping to lower insulin levels. This blueberry pie-in-a-glass comes complete with a “crust” in the form of cashews (healthy fats and protein) and banana (potassium and fiber), and is topped off with a pear (satisfying fiber).
