I don’t know about you, but I tend to have a bit of a pronounced lazy gene in me which is odd, considering I really typically loathe laziness in people, am always rushing around doing stuff, and have been diagnosed with OCD. But admittedly, I’m more lazy when it comes to food.
For instance — I would eat SO much healthier if I had a personal chef. Or if I didn’t have to constantly clean and prep fruits and veggies. I don’t even know how to cut a mango, so I just avoid them. And I love watermelon (it’s easily one of my favorite fruits) but cutting one makes me depressed and discouraged, so I usually just watch it sit on my counter for a month as a nice, hefty paperweight for my mail.
That’s why I supermega LOVE CrunchPak Apple Slices! Not only are they delicious, but they’re fresh sliced apples that stay fresh naturally (using a mixture of vitamin C and a calcium solution) for up to 21-days! They’re ideal for party trays or on-the-go snacking since they’re pre-sliced and ready to go. No rinsing, no slicing, no worries. Easy peasy!
They also have Apple Snackers, DipperZ and Foodles which are fun snack packs that I’m positively addicted to (I love the apple, cheese and pretzel Foodles!). The hardest part is deciding what kind of dipper I want (ranch with carrots, peanut butter, yogurt, or caramel for apples). 🙂
And CrunchPak Apples work perfectly in this S’moreo Apple Salad! If you’ve never had apple salad, we ought to remedy this. Apple salad is more of a dessert than an actual salad (there are no beets or croutons in sight), but it’s a lighter dessert in both weight and being waist-friendly since you can swap out certain ingredients for light or sugar-free pudding/Cool Whip or reduced fat Oreos. And it’s no-bake, making it a perfect treat for hot summer days and to sneak some fruit into a sweet and sinful dessert!
- 10 Oreo cookies, finely chopped
- 1 cup miniature marshmallows
- 1 pkg (14 oz) CrunchPak Sweet Apple Slices, roughly chopped
- 1 box (5.1 oz) instant vanilla pudding (dry mix)
- ⅔ cup milk
- 1 (16 oz) tub Cool Whip Free, thawed
- Chocolate syrup
- In a large bowl, whisk together the vanilla pudding mix, milk and Cool Whip together in a large bowl until combined.
- Gently fold in the Oreo cookies, marshmallows and apple chunks to combine. Refrigerate for about 1 hour to set, then serve with a drizzle of chocolate syrup on top. Keep leftovers refrigerated and covered.
If you love pudding, you’ll love this S’moreo Apple Salad! It has that soft pudding-like texture combined with crisp, juicy apples, soft and chewy marshmallows and crunchy Oreo cookies. It’s SO delicious on a hot day! I loved using the sweet CrunchPak apples, but green apples would work well here, too!
Have a fantastical day!!
