Juice cleanses are so last year. The newest health trend is all about packing in veggies, whole grains, and protein into a nourishing (and colorful) bowl that leaves you feeling, well, powerful. For a sweet riff on the savory concept, try this vibrant dessert bowl with a mix of yogurt and berries, plucked from the pages of nutrition specialist Rachel Beller’s new cookbook Power Souping ($16; amazon.com). The refreshing and flavorful combo delivers a delicious dose of antioxidants, vitamin C, and flavonoids, which, according to some studies, have mood- and memory-enhancing effects. Read on for the full breakdown.

Directions:

1. Place the water and berries in a medium saucepan over medium heat and simmer until soft, about 10 minutes.

2. Pour the mixture into a strainer (you can reserve the antioxidant-rich liquid to flavor sparkling water for a refreshing drink), and place the berries in a high-powered blender. Add the yogurt, lemon zest, lemon juice, cinnamon, and honey. Puree until smooth, chill for at least 15 minutes, and serve.

3. Dress with toppings, if desired.
