An apple contains beneficial fibre – a good dose of it for relatively low calories – and this is important in maintaining positive gut health (keeping the bowels moving, you know!). Apples also contain a great supply of Vitamin C, and have been shown to reduce cardiovascular disease and stroke. Grab a washed organic apple and enjoy it whole, cut it up for little mouths or enjoy the sweet taste of apple in one of these three recipes.
We’ve chosen whole, natural ingredients in these recipes so as not to counteract the benefits of fruit with unnecessary sugar. In all your apple recipes, be sure to let the natural sweetness and flavour shine! How do you enjoy your apples?
