Ahhh the galette, the I’m-not-a-great-baker-but-I-love-bakery’s dream dessert, which is totally me by the way. I’m learning as I keep pushing myself, but don’t let this gorgeous dessert fool you. The food is totally doing all the impressive work here.
Despite how complicated this may look, I assure you it’s rather quite simple. With the help from my friends over at Suncore Foods I was able to make this Rainbow Apple Galette in just about 30 minutes, including the apple coloring time!
I’m still hangin’ onto summer but my palette is craving all the fall treats, you know- apple, cinnamon, pumpkin, spice, etcetera, etcetera. Imagine my nostalgic self baking an apple galette while crying that the last days of summer are upon us… ok, not really crying, but I you feel me, right?!
So here’s the scoop: vanilla. LOL no, I mean here’s how to make this fun, gorgeous Rainbow Apple Galette (of course topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream). For the crust we have:
☆ gluten-free all purpose flour
☆ vegan butter
☆ coconut oil
☆ salt + sugar (can substitute maple syrup)
For the apple filling we have:
☆ 4 Granny Smith apples, sliced
☆ lemon juice
☆ a teaspoon of sugar (can substitute maple syrup)
☆ 1/2 a teaspoon of Suncore Foods Pink Pitaya Supercolor Powder, Premium Midori Jade Matcha Supercolor Powder, Aqua Blue Spirulina Supercolor Powder, and Purple Sweet Potato Supercolor Powder
Not only does using these amazing supercolor powders make this apple galette easy on the eyes, but they also add some amazing health benefits too! Purple Sweet Potato Supercolor Powder boosts immunity, improving digestion, and protects the liver, Aqua Blue Spirulina Supercolor Powder lowers bad cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood sugar levels, and increases good cholesterol and muscle strength, Premium Midori Jade Matcha Supercolor Powder acts as an antiinflammatory, boosts immunity, improves metabolism, relaxes the body, calms the mind, and reduces cholesterol and blood pressure levels, and Suncore Foods Pink Pitaya Supercolor Powder many antioxidants, antibacterial, and nutritional properties help smooth the digestive process and boost the immune system and metabolism.*
I’m a huge advocate for choosing natural food coloring and not using dyes in our food. Conventional food dyes contain such harmful health effects. If you’re following me on Instagram you may have seen my #ditchingdyes challenge, where I encourage you to try to use natural food colorings in your recipes, like I did in this Rainbow Apple Galette!
