With apple picking season coming to a close, this healthy recipe is sure to cure your sweet tooth. If you have adapted the “eat smaller meals more frequently,” you will be pleasantly surprised. Half or less of this recipe can be a small, filling meal.
If you struggle with stress eating, the combination of crisp apples, celery, and nuts satisfies the need to crunch. The bonus is every ingredient is healthy and beneficial to your body—guilt free.
I found this recipe on the Sugar-Free Mom website. I modified the recipe slightly, because I don’t use fat free yogurt. When I use the Wallaby Organic Greek Whole Milk Vanilla Bean Yogurt, this yogurt has a wonderful flavor and consistency, I don’t need oil. I normally don’t eat yogurt, but this specific Wallaby yogurt has a wonderful flavor! My other go to yogurt is Stonyfield Organic Smooth & Creamy French Vanilla.
