Recipe: Mia’s Apple Salad


Mia’s Apple Salad

While this very versatile recipe is super simple, it is also surprisingly delicious. Try it tonight alongside dinner or tomorrow morning at breakfast.

3 medium apples or 4 small apples*
6 ounces lemon or lime flavored soy, almond or coconut yogurt
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup pomegranate arils

Core and dice apples (leave skin on) and combine with yogurt and cinnamon. Divide mixture into 4 servings and sprinkle each one with 2 Tbsp of pomegranate arils.

Shop Smart Tip: Any variety of apples can be used. A mixture of red and green looks great. Pears are also fantastic in place of the apples and will give you even more fiber. You can also use cranberries in place of the pomegranate arils.

Prep Smart Tip: Read my article to find out more about the nutritious punch pomegranates pack, as well as how to get all of those precious arils out without creating a huge mess.

    Do you have a recipe for coconut and/ or almond yogurt?

      I have yet to experiment with making my own yogurt. My favorite brands are Whole Soy & Co (recently stopped production) and Nancy’s. Nancy’s has a line of soy yogurts that are only sweetened with fruit juice. Let me know if you end up experimenting with making your own. Starting with your favorite plant milk and adding a few tablespoons of a commercial soy/almond/coconut yogurt should do the trick. I might use the oven (with the light on only) as a place to let the culture do their magic!
