Cool Boulder Post Run Fuel Tip

Here’s one for those of you who like running, biking etc… from one of the many emails I get from Active Runner, a recipe and some handy info about a post run snack that may be just the ticket for these warm late-summer days.

Especially if you’re one who likes to head out in the heat of the afternoon. Not my preference (I’d rather run in the rain, in  the morning, with a temp about 55 degrees, but hey, that’s just me).

Applesauce Granita with Maple Yogurt
2 cups unsweetened applesauce
1 tsp. lemon juice
1/2 cup fat-free yogurt (either vanilla or plain, I like to use Dannon Light & Fit)
1 tbsp. quality maple syrup
1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Now for the process:

Call, text, or email me today! … I’d seriously enjoy having the opportunity to talk to you about your plans if you’re moving, or if you know someone who is considering a move, and needs some straight answers.

In a shallow 8-inch-square pan, stir the applesauce and lemon juice together. Spread mixture evenly in the pan. Place the pan in the freezer for at least one hour. In a bowl, combine the yogurt, maple syrup and cinnamon. Chill the sauce until ready to serve. When ready, remove the granita from freezer. With a fork, scrape the surface to gently fluff up the mixture. Place in chilled glasses and drizzle with the yogurt sauce. Serve immediately. Makes four servings.
