Happy Saturday everyone! Another week that is almost gone! How crazy is that?
The weather has been amazing since a few days ago, finally! I love being able to be outside and have a sunny and clear sky until late. That’s definitely a mood changer! I mean who doesn’t love sunny warm days right?
Oh gosh, lately I’ve been all into fitness! I’m so in love with it! I’ve always been a very active girl, since I was a kid, wether it was tennis, pilates, yoga, zumba or even golf, my mom was always keeping me busy. The problem is that lately, I became a treadmill bunny, big mistake! So after reading a lot I’ve been trying new things and I love it, I’m actually having so much fun!
Anyways, yesterday morning I went to buy all my food and bought a couple of different things that I’m planning to use for some upcoming recipes, we’ll see how they go.. I’m an apple junkie by the way, I know apples are the most random fruit but for some reason I’ve always like them, so I decided to make something new with them. I bought a couple of others things to go with the recipe I had in mind and guess what? Success, success!
This was so good! Better than I expected, I mean it’s just so easy and simple but yet it is perfect if your craving desserts, a really good and healthy alternative, and the best part is that you only need 3 ingredients! How cool is that right? This can be eaten even as part of your breakfast. If you eat other cooked foods (vegan or not) this is a great way to incorporate more fruits into your diet, specially in the morning. You can spread the Apple-Pear Butter over some toast too!
Gastrawnomica’s 10 min Apple-Pear Tower
1 big red apple
5 dates, pitted
3 medium ripe pears (peeled if not ripe enough)
*Add spices if desired, I didn’t. (Cinnamon, pumpkin spice, ginger..)
1 red apple
Blend the Apple-Pear Butter ingredients in the food processor until smooth and not very chunky. Using a mandoline, cut the red apple in thin slices and serve over a bowl or glass. Top with butter and add another layer of apples, top again with butter and serve.
