- ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
- ¼ cup apple or blueberry juice
- ½ cup tahini
- ¼ cup honey
- 1 vanilla bean, halved lengthwise and seeds scraped out
- ½ cup raspberries and/or blueberries
Combine applesauce & juice in a medium mixing bowl. Stir in tahini, honey and vanilla seeds. Mix until smooth. In a small bowl muddle the berries with a fork or the back of a wooden spoon. Add crushed to the mixture. Beat mixture by hand until creamy and smooth. Refrigerate to let flavors blend. Serve chilled, or heat until just soft to use as a thick syrup. Makes 2 cups.
