Warm Apple & Berry Botanical Bowls
GRATE an apple directly into a small saucepan. ADD frozen berries & put the lid on.
HEAT to just under a low gentle simmer, stir a few times. You want it warm-hot but do not boil.
SERVE warm, cherish the sweet simplicity or sprinkle with a dash of spice or seeds.
This is a wonderfully restorative dish, perfect any time of the day or night; easy to eat, soothing to the digestive system and great for when you are in need of healing foods or feel sluggish.
*SWAP frozen blueberries for any berries you like. I like to use frozen; they are more budget-conscious + eco-conscious when it comes to those small plastic berry packets + often much better quality as they are picked and immediately frozen.
ADD 2 tbsp Super Seed Mix to ramp up the supportive digestion goodness.
ADD Spice – ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, baking spice blend,
ADD seeds and nuts like chopped walnuts, pecans, cashews or coconut chips if you want fat + crunch.
