Peel and slice a kiwi. You can slice a fresh pineapple or buy canned pineapple in natural pineapple juice.

Step 4. Make the fruit compote sauce

Add 1 cup of fresh or frozen mangos, maple syrup, lemon juice, vanilla extract, and salt to a small saucepan over medium heat. Once the fruit is soft and melted, mash it with a fork or potato masher. Allow to simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Then transfer to a shallow bowl to cool.

OPTIONAL: I like to use the chopper cup with my immersion blender to blend the compote to a smooth and creamy consistency. Pour the sauce into the cup and blend until smooth.

Emotionally Satisfying Too!

Eating to nourish our minds is equally as important as nourishing our bodies. I feel emotionally satisfied when I eat my healthy gluten-free double chocolate chip cookies. It satisfies my craving for something sweet and brings me peace of mind. Because I know my family and I are eating something with clean, naturally sweet, nutritionally supercharged ingredients. And I can still enjoy one of my favorite flavors from childhood that is anti-inflammatory and easily digestible.
