I’ve recently been on a major breakfast kick — not necessarily a healthy breakfast kick, but at least I eat *something* in the morning, and don’t just wait until 2 pm lunch to try to squeeze (no pun intended) some food in! (Today it was ice cream… no judgments, ok?)
So I was particularly excited to be asked to work with fabulous and healthy applesauce brand, GoGo squeeZ! They have the cutest containers of squeezeable applesauce that are all natural, 100% fruit, grown in farms an orchards that care about the environment — oh, and gluten, dairy, and nut free. Basically, everything that your food should be and rarely is. If you guys have kids, this is the perfect thing to throw in your bag (or their lunchbox) for a daytime snack!
And even if you’re an adult, applesauce is still deliciousl I used their apple mango flavor for this recipe and it was so good. They’ve just announced their new packaging over on their Facebook page, so be sure to look for it in your grocery store!
And once you find it, make this!
Raspberry Mango Applesauce Parfait
1 package GoGo squeeZ Apple Mango
~6 ounces vanilla or plain greek yogurt (I used nonfat)
1/2 cup fresh raspberries
1 tsp powdered sugar, to garnish
Layer approximately 4 ounces of greek yogurt in the bottom of a single-size serving dish. Spoon over it about 1/4 cup fresh raspberries, reserving some of the prettiest ones to garnish. Squeeze one package of GoGo squeeZ Apple Mango over the raspberries, then pour on the remaining yogurt (reserve 1 tbsp) and add the additional 1/4 cup raspberries. Spoon out 1 tablespoon of additional yogurt and a few raspberries on top, and dust on some powdered sugar. Serve!
