Maple Cranberry Tart

Ingredients

  • 2 apples - chopped
  • 2 oz cranberries
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 3 tbsp walnuts
  • 1 tsp lucuma powder
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup ice

Lucuma is a Peruvian superfruit that has a luscious caramel taste, as well as iron, zinc and calcium. The vitamin C in this smoothie comes from cranberries (which also provide fiber and vitamin E, but very low amounts of sugar). Studies have recently linked daily consumption of apples to increased cognitive health, and they provide fiber and vitamin C as well. Top this sweet treat off with some maple syrup (which has iron, zinc and manganese), and you have a great way to curb cravings any time of day.
