With spring in bloom and summer right around the corner, our food cravings begin to turn away from hot meals and towards our favorite warm weather dishes. Here is a quick and easy spring-time snack for the whole family!
Applesauce can be a great addition to your child’s lunch, an afternoon snack or even a family picnic. Most applesauce is made by cooking the apples and adding processed sugar. Instead, try this healthy version of your favorite traditional recipe. Keep the apples raw – this way you don’t kill any healthy vitamins and nutrients naturally contained in the fruit. And, the natural sugars in apples are all you need to make your sauce sweet. The blueberries add a dash of antioxidants, color and flavor to your applesauce. And the ginger gives it a kick! I love the spiciness that ginger brings to any recipe so I usually double the amount, but feel free to start with a little and add more depending on your preference. Finally fresh lime juice – traditional applesauce would use lemon juice, but I think lime really blends well with the apple and ginger. Plus, the citric acid found in limes helps preserve the color of your applesauce.
