You might as well double this recipe because it’s going to disappear! Fabulous in a wrap the next day, topping to a vermicelli salad or simply on their own, these kabobs are fast and phenomenal with the apple sauce marinade allowing the kabobs to caramelize under the broiler. The Mott’s Fruitsations Thai Peanut Dipping Sauce is equally easy to make and has that flavour every family member will love. Extend the sauce with chicken broth to make a sensational dressing for a noodle salad.
Nothing says springtime in Canada like fresh asparagus. Delight in the tastes of the season with this nutrient-rich and refreshing salad. The apple honey lime vinaigrette is fruity and delicious, and using Mott’s Fruitsations apple sauce reduces the amount of oil needed and helps to coat the lettuce. For people who love salad dressing and hate skimping – rejoice! This recipe promises to be a new favourite that is sure to mix-up your “fruit-ine”!

Fall is the time of year when we crave healthy, satisfying dinners. Root veggies are abundant at this time of year and can be prepared in lots of different ways. A great way to eat root veggies is to roast them and use them as an accompaniment to a roast beef or chicken dish. You can omit certain veggies if you don’t like them and add more of the ones that you do like.
This one is really simple (so simple the kids can do it) and potentially super healthy. In a bowl or glass, layer or mix healthy yogurt, granola and fruit. There are organic varieties of all three available. This is a great recipe for breakfast or a snack for kids and adults alike.
