- 2 large apples, peeled, cored and diced (I recommend Granny Smith apples)
- 1.5 scoops of RAWRRR Superfood Protein (Vanilla)
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons (Blonde) Coconut Sugar or Stevia to taste
- Pinch of sea salt
- 2/3 cup fat-Tofutti imitation cream softened
- 1/3 CO-YO natural flavoured yoghurt
- 4 dates, no sugar added
- 1/2 cup walnut halves (about 18)
- 8 Mini Dessert Dishes (approx. 4 ounces)
Add diced apples, 1-teaspoon coconut sugar, salt, and cinnamon to a medium pot, cover, and cook on medium heat just until apples begin to boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook until tender, approximately 20 minutes. Be careful not to turn into overcook. Allow to cool to room temperature before adding to dessert dishes.
While apples are cooking, in a medium mixing bowl add softened cream cheese, yogurt, Rawrrr and remaining coconut sugar. Beat with an electric mixer until smooth and sugar is dissolved, approx. 2 minutes. Refrigerate until ready to enjoy!
Add dates to a food processor and pulse until finely diced or chop finely. Add walnuts and continue to pulse just until a coarse crumb consistency and combined with dates.
Evenly layer to each dessert dish, walnut mixture, Tofutti cream cheese, and lastly cooked apples. Sprinkle any remaining walnut mixture over the top.
Chill until ready to serve.
Most importantly, ENJOY :)!
