I’m going to get all Caption Obvious for a sec…k?

An apple a day keeps the doctor away.

But really though.

Apples have so many amazing benefits & I feel like they’re the totally forgotten fruit.

Pretty much people treat them like they’re a basic bitch.

& it’s so WRONG, wrong, wrong. Apples are the furthest thing from basic.

They’re actually kind of insane. Why?

1.) Apples whiten teeth…yup, that’s right. Chewing an apple reduces tooth decay because it lowers the levels of bacteria.

2.) Their peels have “potent anti-growth activities against cancer cells in the liver, colon, and breasts.” Oh, hey.

3.) Decreases ricks of diabetes, Parkinson’s, & Alzheimer’s.

4.) Apples are high in fiber which means you’ll feel full quicker & longer. Meow.

5.) The beautiful, shiny fruit boosts the immune system ( hello, antioxidant quercetin!! ), detoxifies the liver, helps alleviate hemorrhoids ( too much info? What’s new ), & prevents cataracts.

6.) They also help with diarrhea AND constipation.

7.) Want to reduce your cholesterol? Good news: “the soluble fibre found in apples binds with fats in the intestine, which translates into lower cholesterol levels and a healthier you.”

8.) Fun fact: my dad has hiatal hernia & says the trick to keeping it under control is a red, delicious apple at night. He eats one before bed to curb any symptoms.

Ok, let’s get to the good stuff: three ingredient apple pie dip.

So damn good, so damn easy.

I found this recipe on Loni Jane’s Instagram. All you do is let about seven to ten-ish ( depending on how many peeps ) pitted dates soak in filtered water for one hour. After that pour dates into a blender, add two heaping scoops of chia seeds, & a bunch of sprinkles of cinnamon. Blend ( a food processor works best, FYI ). Slice apples ( I like to use different kinds/colors for a lil extra flair ), sprinkle some cinnamon on top of them, & serve. Enjoy your apple pie dip made from nature’s candy: fruit.

Ta-da.

The Skinny Confidential talks diet, fitness, & health.I’m obsessed with making this for my girlfriend’s because it’s super, super filling & that whole ‘hand to mouth’ thing helps curb my serious chips/guac addiction.

What’s your favorite fruit? Maybe I’ll try to make a dip out of it!

P.S. dates are well, kind of everything. I like to use one for sweetening green smoothies. MMMmmm.

( I also LOVE apples for cocktails & popcorn

  1. Rasberries are the best fruit in my opinion…yum…it might be hard to make a dip from those though 🙂 I have never tried a date, but I probably should now! Thanks for the great ideas and inspiration!

  2. YUM dates are my bff I swear I could eat a zillion a day, who needs candy when you have sweet dates and apples 🙂 Thanks for this amazing recipe cannot wait to try it out for girls night!

  3. Well I never knew apples whitened your teeth! (heads to the fruit bowl) amazing post and the dip looks so yummy xx

  4. Bananas are my favorite fruit, but I definitely eat an apple a day. I like organic Fuji apples mostly, and eat them plain, or chop them up and throw them in cottage cheese for more of a hearty snack. Dates are soooo versatile, and I love this recipe!

  5. I’m a little embarrassed to confess that I’ve always been a little weary of dates. But it’s time to put on my big girl pants, so I’m going to whip this dip up ASAP! Thanks!

  6. This dip sounds delicious! My favorite fruit is strawberry if you want to try a dip for that:)

    Also, since you like dates, I highly recommend making a homemade frappe at your house with coffee, dates and almond milk. So delish.

  7. Oh YUM! I have everything needed to make this right a home – looks like I’ll be making this tonight! Thanks for sharing girl XO, D

  8. Yum yum yum! I’ll make a huge batch of this when I’m at uni struggling with deadlines in a couple of months. I’ve managed to kick my sugar habit and I want to keep the processed stuff at bay for as long as possible xxx

  9. I amazed reading through these comments how many of you
    Ladies don’t eat dates! I discovered them while pregnant, after running across a study showing that 6 dates a day that last month of pregnancy help to have a quicker, easier labor. Um, yes please. Needless to say I spent 4 weeks pigging out on natures candy! Ended up having my babe au natural just like I wanted. Love your blog and healthy tips Lauryn! Keep ’em comin!❤️

  10. I like dates in things but I don’t really eat them alone. I love them in homemade “Lara” bars (or store-bought ones for that matter). I’m actually a big prune fan which most people think is weird but I love the taste and eat at least 2 prunes a day kind of like a daily vitamin. Oh and looove apples, the most convenient natural snack ever! Eat one as a mid-morning snack every day, Gala is my fav.

  11. hey lauryn! just wanted to say thanks for the amazing post b/c this is seriously THE most perfect post-workout dorm room recipe ever!! as a college student i struggle SO hard to find snacks that are both nutritious & easy. before i head to the gym to do my kayla itsines workouts, i soak the dates, and then when i get home i finish the dip, slice an apple & have the best snack to munch on as i study! can’t wait to try out some more xx

  12. Lauryn,

    Just wondering how big your “scoops” are for the chia? I buy chia in bulk – my husband is obsessed, so we use just regular tablespoons.

    I just bought a massive container of dates to mix into pumpkin puree, which I spice with pumpkin spice and ultimately eat with yogurt – sooooo good.

    I am absolutely trying this recipe for my lunches next week!

  13. I have a couple favorite fruits. Pineapple, watermelon, pears, peaches, pluots and black cherries. I cant pick just one fav lol. Variety is the spice of life right? Have fun trying to make a dip from those
