  • Place the bowl of yogurt and cinnamon next to the fruit and use it as a dip.

Notes

Smart Shopping Tips
  • Some varieties of apples are quite expensive. Granny Smith and Golden Delicious apples are usually a good buy. Buying in bulk is a good value if they will all be used before they spoil.
  • Other flavors of yogurt may be used, but watch out for added sugar. Read labels carefully.
 
Cooking & Serving Tips:
  • Instead of cinnamon, try an apple pie or pumpkin pie spice blend.
  • Place cut-up fruit which has been dipped in orange juice in bags so it’s ready to go during the week.
  • Strawberries or any cut-up fruit can be used.
  • Apples should be stored away from vegetables as they can cause them to spoil faster.
  • For maximum fiber, do not peel apples.
