Easy Healthy After School Snack | Apple Pear Pie Sauce


Everyday the kids come home starving from school and most of the time I tell them to just check the cupboard and see what they can find.  Well that’s been getting me a bit frustrated because they pick junk food.  So today before they got home, I decided to check the fridge downstairs to see what I could offer them.

The first thing I noticed was a bag of pears and apples on their last leg.  Instead of throwing them in the trash and wasting money, I figured I would try to come up with a quick Apple Pear Sauce using my Blendtec.


Having the fruit be a bit older actually proved beneficial since they were soft and blended easily.`  Then to add some more nutrients, I threw in some Chia Seed and Walnuts.`  The only extra flavor was sprinkle of cinnamon and a dash of water.

The end result in my opinion was Apple Pie without the Guilt.  It had all the yummy flavors without the extra sugar or calories.

The kids gobbled it down and actually asked for more.`  Being that it takes only about 3 minutes to make (mainly the time to wash, core and dice the fruit) I said no problem and made a second batch — using up the remaining pears set to go bad.

I will definitely be making this delicious after school snack again and think I might be making it in the mornings as well for my picky younger son who doesn’t like anything for breakfast.  Maybe he will agree to Apple Pear Pie Sauce with a bit of Greek Yogurt.  Sounds yummy to me.
