The Absolute No-Guilt Apple Pie!

Yes, you read that apple pie that's actually good for you!  Who knew?! Dr. Joel Fuhrman, who wrote the new cookbook Eat to Live, stopped by Tonia's Kitchen to talk about his recipe that'll leave you with zero guilt for eating dessert.  Dr. Joel told Tonia the "pie" comes from chia seeds and nuts, and he doesn't skimp on the ice cream...or "nice" cream =, as he calls it!  Dr. Fuhrman says essentially it's a frozen banana, blended with macadamia nuts and vanilla powder. Or you can have chocolate by subbing in cocoa powder. Anyway you choose, it's a delicious way to stay healthy, and still enjoy that dessert

  • 4 apples, peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
