An Apple Sundae is a delicious way to have a healthy treat, but you can also eat them for breakfast!
Delicious, fruity, whole food goodness, coming to a breakfast table near you! Almost like an “apple slaw,” this mixture can be eaten as or or used to to top yogurt, pancakes, or even toast.
So, why should you make this healthy apple sundae for breakfast?
- Apples can help regulate blood sugar. Kids won’t get the blood sugar spike, followed by a drop like they would if you gave them Fruit Loops.
- Pecans are rich in healthy fats! Good fat in a child’s diet will help them stay full, longer, and support brain health.
- Raisins are a good source of iron!
- Honey may help children fight allergies, and it’s soothing to a cough.
- Yogurt is a great source of protein!
Here is our quick recipe:
- 2 apples, grated or sliced thinly
- 1/4 cup raisins
- 3 tablespoon dried cranberries
- 1/4 cup chopped pecans
- 1 tsp. Lemon juice
- 1 Tablespoon honey
- 2 cups yogurt
Mix all the ingredients but the yogurt together, then spoon the topping on top of the yogurt. Use a clear glass dish to give that fancy feel!
Some other variations of the breakfast sundae we’ve done were:
- Bananas and walnuts
- strawberries and granola
- pomegranate seeds and almonds
