#9 :: Applesauce Granita with Maple Yogurt

Not only is this yummy, but it's a good low fat dessert too (for all those who started diets yesterday!). It's super simple to make, it literally only takes a few seconds! This is an Italian Ice style dessert that makes a great replacement for ice cream!



  • 2 cups unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice


  • 1/2 cup plain regular fat free yogurt (not Greek-style)
  • 1 tablespoon good quality maple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


For the Granita: 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 Sauce: In a bowl, combine the yogurt, maple syrup, and cinnamon. Chill the sauce until ready to serve.

Remove the granita from the freezer. With a fork, scrape the surface of the granita to gently fluff it up. Serve immediately, in dessert glasses or dishes, drizzled with yogurt sauce.

Makes 4 servings.
