What You'll Need


RAW APPLE-CINNAMON AND CHIA LAYER

3 small apples (Honeycrisp, Pink Lady, or other crisp red apple)

3-5 Medjool dates, pitted (see tips)

½ tsp cinnamon

Pinch of nutmeg

2 Tbsp chia seeds

CINNAMON SOFT-SERVE INGREDIENTS

2 large, ripe bananas, peeled, sliced, and frozen

1 cinnamon

Unsweetened almond milk, as needed

OPTIONAL TOPPINGS

Chopped raw walnuts

Raisins

Dried cranberries

Shelled hemp seeds


How to Make It


RAW APPLE-CINNAMON AND CHIA LAYER PREPARATION

1 Place one of the diced apples in an airtight container.

2 Process the remaining two apples in a food processor along with the dates, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Pulse the mixture a few times and then process for 2-3 minutes, or until the mixture resembles applesauce, stopping to scrape down the sides if needed.

3 Transfer the mix to the container with the diced apples and stir in the chia seeds.

4 Refrigerate for 1-2 hours to allow chia seeds to thicken the mix.

CINNAMON SOFT-SERVE PREPARATION

1 Process the frozen bananas and cinnamon in a food processor until smooth and creamy.

2 Add a bit of plant-based milk, 1 Tbsp at a time if needed for the bananas to blend but not so much that you end up with a smoothie instead.

TO ASSEMBLE

1 In 2 medium jars or glasses, layer the soft-serve and apple-cinnamon-chia mixture, one after the other, garnishing with toppings as you go.

2 Serve immediately.

Cooking Tips

Firm Dates? No Problem. If your dates are firm, as opposed to soft and gooey, soak them in warm water for 30 minutes before processing.
