Choices, choices. Oh, what do I post next? So many things I wanna share--the rest of my vacation, the cheesecake I made for Easter, the thoughts I've had about the Savior, more of the book I finally finished reading, fundraiser stuff that has taken way too long to get together... I guess since it's fast, I choose to post a recipe. It's what I ate for breakfat this morning and it sure filled me up. It is also great as a snack or a dessert. It's about as healthy as I get, other than eating just raw fruit or veggies.
This is a nice combination of flavors and textures and is an easy recipe to change up with whatever you like (pineeapple, grapes, kiwi, flaxseed meal...). I've had it for years and can't remember where I first found it, but I changed it a bit and have this in my files. I sometimes like to either sprinkle mine with granola or make a parfait out of it so you can dig down to that extra crunch. I did put in too much yogurt this time so it was a bit wet.
Apples in a Haystack
1/2 c. vanilla nonfat yogurt
1/2 T. lemon juice
1 T. honey
2 med. Red Delicious apples, unpeeled
1/4 c. dark or golden raisins
2 t. sliced almonds
Mix yogurt, lemon juice and honey together in bowl. Core and coarsely grate apples. Toss in yogurt mixture to coat. Toss raisins into apple mixture. Divide apple mixture among serving bowls, top with almonds, and serve.
Think it'll fool your kids? Well, maybe it isn't quite ice cream, but it's still good!
