Health Tip of the Day - Recipe

Since we read about the benefits of apples, here is a recipe for an apple spread.

My 9 year old had this on his birthday cake. Now he wants it whenever I make a cake.

Applesauce ‘Frosting’

2 Tablespoons Astragalus Root Powder (optional, for extra immune support)
1Tablespoon flax seed
1Tablespoon chia seed (or add an extra Tbs. of flax)
1 Tablespoon fennel seed
1 Tablespoon fenugreek seed
1 Tablespoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ginger
1/2 teaspoon green stevia, to taste (optional)
2 large or 3 medium apples, cut into half inch chunks (scrub well, core and leave peels on)

Grind seeds and spices together in blender. Add apple chunks and blend on high until you have a smooth, consistent texture.

Use large rubber spatula to spread on cooled cake.
