We love healthy foods, but sometimes you just HAVE to have ice cream. On those occasions, instead of covering it with chocolate, caramel, whipped cream, and other fattening things, we make Applesauce Sundaes! Not only do we appease the sweet cravings, we each get a serving of fruit!
This sundae topping provides a sweet and flavorful alternative to store bought toppings and is sure to be a crowd pleaser this fall. Serve these sundaes for your guests or whip them up as a treat for your family after a day at the local apple orchard.
- 2 cups of applesauce
- 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon allspice
- Optional: 1 or 2 cloves
- Vanilla or caramel ice cream.
- Combine the applesauce, brown sugar, cinnamon, allspice, and cloves in a small pot on the stove. Stir the ingredients together well. Cook on medium heat until it comes to a slow simmer. Continue to stir frequently. Reduce heat and allow to cook for another 5 minutes on low. Remove the cloves with a slotted spoon. Prepare 4 bowls of ice cream and ladle the topping on top before serving. Transfer any unused topping into a container with a lid and refrigerate.
Oh my goodness, what a great idea to make an applesauce sundae! I love applesauce, it’s one of my favorite snacks and I always have some at home, but what a great idea to add all those warm flavors and pair it with ice-cream! Sounds like a delicious fall dessert! 🙂
Yum! My husband is a big applesauce fan – he would love this one! #thoughtfulspot
