List of Ingredients
4 medium apple(s), cored (use Granny Smith for tart flavor; use Gala for sweet flavor)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 cup McNeil Nutritionals SPLENDA No Calorie Sweetener
1/4 cup water
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
1/4 oz fat-free sugar-free instant vanilla pudding mix, about 2 Tbsp
3/4 cup fat-free skim milk
Preheat oven to 350°F. Using a vegetable peeler, peel a 1/2-inch horizontal strip around apples to help release juices during baking. Place apples in a 9 X 9-inch baking dish.
Combine cinnamon, ginger and Splenda in a small bowl. Place 1 tablespoon of cinnamon mixture in cored-out center of each apple; sprinkle remaining cinnamon mixture over apples. Combine water and lemon juice in a cup; pour liquid around apples.
Bake until apples are soft when pierced with a knife, about 15 to 20 minutes; remove from oven and let cool.
Pour pudding mix into a medium bowl; whisk in milk to make a fairly thin sauce. Place one apple on a plate and drizzle with sauce. Yields 1 apple and about 1/4 cup of sauce per serving.
