Applesauce Sundaes




When I was a kid, one of our favorite activities was making ice cream sundaes. There was something about choosing my own ingredients and assembling it myself that made it so much fun. We do that with my kids on occasion, and they always love it, but I found a healthy alternative. It has all of the do-it-yourself fun, but less of the guilt. We use unsweetened applesauce and let the kids scoop their own toppings onto their cup. It's a sweet and healthy treat, and the kids have a blast making their own creations. Some toppings we've tried:

Any other ideas?

  1. Kristen. Dude. That is NOT a sundae. I'm pretty sure that's a) lying to your kids, and b) child abuse in 49 states. Hippie California may be the exception.

    Poor babies. Send 'em over here so I can teach 'em what a real sundae is.

  2. My sister and I used to have a nanny over the long summer holidays. I used to make her stewed apple (apple sauce) layered with either vanilla ice-cream or Greek yoghurt mixed with honey (depending on which we had!) with cinnamon sugar and flaked almonds sprinkled on the top.
    She was convinced I was going to go into catering! Or maybe she just pretended - I was only 10! But she did eat them all. So they can't have been too bad!
