  • Apple compote
  • 2 apples, granny smith or other tart variety, peeled and cubed
  • 1½ cups water
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • Parfait
  • 1½ cups plain, nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons crunchy almond butter
  • 2 packets Stevia (1½ teaspoons); if using Stevia extract, reduce amount to ¼ teaspoon
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds

  1. In a small pot, combine the apples, water, cinnamon and honey. Cook uncovered over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until it comes to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook for another 20 minutes until the compote forms.
