Applesauce is super easy to make and simply delicious. It makes me think of visiting my grandma, years ago. She used to make her own applesauce every time we came to her house because she knew how much we liked it.
All you need is:
- 1 kg of apples. Try the softer varieties, like Golden Delicious or Granny Smith.
- Around 40 grams of fine granulated sugar.
- 50 ml of water.
- A bit of cinnamon.
This is a recipe that literally anybody can make. Applesauce is great to make with your children as well, to introduce them to cooking healthy meals.
Peel the apples and cut them into small pieces. Put it in a pan and add the water. Add the cinnamon and sugar. Bring to boiling point and let it simmer for about 10 minutes. Stir every now and then. You can make it as coarse or fine as you wish. Also add more or less cinnamon and sugar to suit your personal taste. Just let the applesauce cool a bit and eat it while nice and warm.
Baked Apples with Honey and Nuts

This recipe is quick and super delicious. You will need:

Fudge Brownies With Raspberries
Many people think that chocolate is unhealthy, but this isn’t the case at all! The higher the percentage of actual cocoa in chocolate, the better. Sure, candybars and choco bars bought in a supermarket usually have lower cacao levels and thus more added ingredients, and are not healthy at all. But that doesn’t mean you cannot make delicious, healthy desserts with chocolate. This has to be one of our favourites and we are sure you will like it too!
What you will need for 8 pieces:
- 4 oz. of chocolate, best over 70% pure. Break it into small pieces.
- 16 raspberries, 2 per piece of brownie.
- 1 avocado.
- Half a cup of Almond butter.
- Half a cup of maple syrup.
- Some cocoa powder.
- Vegetable oil spray.
Making these delicious fudge brownies isn’t that much work if you have a food processor or blender. First, melt the chocolate in a sauce pan with very low heat until it’s a smooth paste. Then puree the avocado, almond butter and maple syrup until is a smooth mix. Add the cocoa powder and a little bit of water and finally the melted chocolate and puree again until it’s a smooth mix. Transfer the whole mixture to flat plate (put some veggie oil spray on it beforehand) and season it wilt the salt. Let it chill for about an hour cut it into 8 pieces. Then add the raspberries and enjoy your home made fudge brownies.

It combines some great flavours that work very well together and lets you make a simple, yet healthy dessert that will keep people asking how you made it.

- 200 ml of coconut milk.
- 30 grams of chia seeds.

- Additionally you can add some lime too.

Then mix it again to make sure it’s a homogenous blend. Then cover the bowl and leave it to soak for at least 2 hours in the fridge.
After peeling the mango and cutting it to smaller pieces, put half of the mango in the blender to make a nice puree. You can add some lime to this mix if you like.
