Applesauce Granita with Maple Yogurt

Okay, this is a weird one.  Maybe even more weird than Dukkah.  5 wholesome ingredients, 10 seconds of effort and hello...a super healthy, scrumptious treat.  Crazy.  It tastes great, it's seriously easy to make and you can feel good about eating it.

Origin: Melissa D'Arabian, Food Network

Notes:  Great snack for kids.  You can use honey in place of the maple syrup if you prefer.  You may need more than the recommended hour for the granita to firm up, but don't leave it in the freezer for more than 3 hours or you'll have a hard time scraping/loosening the applesauce.


2 cups unsweetened applesauce
1 teaspoon lemon juice

Maple Yogurt
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 tablespoon maple syrup (real)
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

In a shallow 8-inch square pan, stir the applesauce and lemon juice together and spread the mixture evenly in the pan. Place the pan in the freezer for at least 1 hour.

For the yogurt sauce, combine the yogurt, maple syrup, and cinnamon in a small bowl. Chill the sauce until ready to serve.

Remove the granita from the freezer. With a fork, scrape the surface of the granita to fluff it up.

Serve immediately drizzled with yogurt sauce.
