This tasty, crunchy and sweet dessert will soon become a family favorite! Apples are packed with fiber, which is important for heart health at any age. Apple skins are also a good source of quercetin, a plant compound that is a phytochemical, or what the Super Crew calls fight-o-chemicals which helps fight off disease. Quercetin helps protects us against asthma and appears to be important for memory and brain health.
Don’t be intimidated by the beet juice ingredient! You can buy vacuumed sealed beets available at Trader Joes or through Melissa’s Produce. Use the liquid from the package and it will be more than enough to color your yogurt. You can also make and freeze beet juice in ice cube trays for later use if you want to try this recipe a different day, or even as a natural food dye for other dishes. Next time your kids have a school party or play date -try making these apple donuts as a fun activity!
