hot apple cider recipe - healthy comfort diet dessert
One of my favorite things about fall is enjoying the amazing flavors of this season. As a Your Perfect Cup™ K-Cup® Ambassador for Keurig/Green Mountain Coffee, I recently got to sample their Hot Apple Cider. I decided to do a little experimenting for a Healthy Comfort recipe, and came up with this indulgent 170-calorie hot apple cider float. It tastes just a little like apple pie a la mode in a cup (without the astronomical 1,200 calories that is common in restaurant versions of the real pie a la mode). It also makes a great Thanksgiving dessert that is much healthier.

Healthy Comfort is a series on Type-A Parent featuring a fit spin on classic comfort food recipes.

    I bet the gram crackers really top this off. Sounds wonderful!

      You know… even though it is just a dusting, they really do. The graham crackers I think help give it that apple pie taste.
