New Dessert Recipe :-)

11/11/15 ~~

You’re going to love the recipe below – it’s a guilt-free way to enjoy one of my favorite flavors of fall – APPLES!
But before we dive into the recipe…
Did you know that apples have amazing health benefits?
Here are my Top 3 Favorite Benefits!
1. Excellent Nutritional Value
A medium apple has about 4 grams of soluble fiber and are also  a good source of immune-boosting vitamin C (providing 14% of the Daily Value).
2. Weight Loss
Apples satisfy hunger for very few calories – so it’s not surprising that they can be part of a healthy diet that promotes weight loss. Florida State University researchers suspect apples’ antioxidants and pectin (a type of fiber) are responsible for the amazing health benefits of apples.
3. Heart Health
Last year, the Iowa Women’s Health Study reported that, among the 34,000-plus women it’s been tracking for nearly 20 years, apples were associated with a lower risk of death from both coronary heart disease and cardiovascular disease. Some years earlier, Finnish researchers studying dietary data collected over 28 years from over 9000 men and women found that frequent apple eaters had the lowest risk of suffering strokes compared with non-apple eaters. Experts attribute the heart-healthy benefits to antioxidant compounds found in apples, which help prevent LDL cholesterol from oxidizing and inhibit inflammation. Plus, the soluble fiber in apples has also been shown to lower cholesterol levels.
Now, here’s the New Dessert Recipe I promised you.  🙂
