Apple Snow is a descendent of an Elizabethan recipe called Snow Cream. Snow Cream, as the name suggests uses cream mixed with egg whites and apples, but the recipe I found (I can't remember where) left out the cream and used the egg yolks instead. It sounded like a good idea to me since it means you are not left wondering what to do with leftover yolks. For me, I consider Apple Snow a non-alcholic eggnog. This is therefore a great way to share the festive drink with kids. Although I call it a drink, it is very thick, and might actually be better eaten with a spoon, like you would a sundae. Based on the brands I used, each serving is about 195 calories.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Makes: 2 servings

450g Granny Smith apples (or whichever variety you prefer)
2 large eggs
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp water

Peel, core and chop your apples.
Add the lemon juice and water.
Cook the apples in a saucepan until thick and pulpy.
Separate the eggs and beat the yolks into the apples.
Whisk the egg whites and fold into the mixture.
Pour into glasses and chill in the fridge.
