Benefits of Banana Chai Smoothie Parfait Ingredients

The key ingredient Banana is a healthy source of potassium, vitamin C, and vitamin B6.

Vitamin A present in bananas improves eye vision at night.
Coconut yogurt (a plant-based yogurt) is a probiotic-rich food that supports digestive health and boosts your immunity. It is perfect for vegans who usually avoid animal-based products but are looking for an ideal substitute for real yogurt made from animal milk.
Another ingredient used to make this delicious parfait is Almond butter. It is enriched with vitamin E, magnesium (improves blood circulation), and proteins that support heart health and prevent the body from chronic cardiovascular diseases.
Oh! How could I skip the benefits of chai tea? Adanim’s Chai tea is a perfect blend of 100% natural herbs and spices (ginger, cardamom, cloves, and cinnamon). Ginger in chai tea helps relieve nausea. Ginger is a wonderful herb that helps relieve stomach pain and has antibacterial properties that help treat infections like cold and flu. Moreover, it improves brain functioning and protects the body against Alzheimer’s disease.
Cinnamon is a powerhouse of antioxidants and is suitable for people with diabetes. A delicious spice that also supports digestion.
