Marian’s Morsel (9): Nutty Apple Puree

Healthy snack: apple puree (sweetened with xylitol) with dairy-free yogurt and toasted nuts topping

Sounds naughty but is simply delicious

Serves 3

3 cooking apples (I use Irish bramley apples)
Juice of 1 lemon
5 tablespoons of filtered water
3 tablespoons xylitol

Topping:
3 tablespoon hemp seeds (optional)
3 tablespoons dairy-free yogurt (or more to your taste)
Toasted almonds and  pecans, chopped (10 of each)

Peel, core and slice the apples and add to a medium saucepan.

Sprinkle the lemon juice and water over the apples ensure they are all coated in the lemon juice and water.

Bring to the boil and then simmer until you have a nice ‘mushy’ consistency leaving a few soft lumps as I think it adds a nice texture.

Stir regularly to ensure the liquid doesn’t evaporate off. If it does just lower the temperature and add 1 tablespoon of water or more if needs be. Don’t over do it or you’re left with a watery mess.

When cooled down place in nice bowls topped off with the hemp seeds (if using them), yogurt (to taste) and the chopped nuts.

I find this a great snack. The apple puree is great mixed with yogurt to cool down a curry that’s just over done on the heat.
