Beauty Bites : Cinnamon Sugar Apple Dip
Once again I had to debate with myself on whether I should keep queenofallyousee strictly about beauty related things only lol. Does anybody else have the same OCD tendencies? I stress on how my pictures aren’t very united — different category content, ambiance, decor… which totally doesn’t make sense even to me. Yup lunacy I tell you.
Anywayz today’s post is just a quick chitchat on this easy healthy snack I learned from one of my favorite beauty vloggers Elle Fowler aka the girl who has my dream makeup closet, and yes she has a closet full of makeup. It’s yummy, light, and yet it fills up the stomach fast… or maybe I just ate too much of it.
an apple a day
It’s very simple, just mix your plain greek yogurt, sugar, and cinnamon powder. The amount of sugar and cinnamon you’ll put will depend on your flavor preference, so just keep experimenting with it. I added around two spoons of sugar and A LOT of cinnamon. You can also add some honey cereal flakes to your dip, if like me you want it crunchier.
I hope you enjoyed this short recipe as much Bentley (my Yorkie) and I did :) any apple recipes you’d like to share?
I love apple snacks! My favorite so far is apple + almond butter… so easy yet quite healthy! Thanks for this idea it looks delicious :) Shayne how do you cut it so thin + perfectly!?! You and your OCD would probably cringe to see the way I cut my apples lol.
And just my 2 cents, I don't mind if you branch out from beauty at all :)
wow.. this is good!
That's a great idea (I will replace sugar by stevia) I love cinnamon. I love the smell as well I use a cinnamon scented shampoo.
Ooh nice, it sounds delicious! Shall have to try!
And I say don't worry so much about trying to keep your blog to something strict. Just be free with it, it's fantastic!
yummy! a quick way to spice up the good old apple
Wow! A dip for fresh fruits? This is great. Will try this soon. :) Thanks Shayne!
It looks delicious something I will snack on.
I think the versatility is nice. I've got some food related posts coming up soon too. Except junk food from Japan. xD
Wow.. That's look yummy..
Wow! that looks so yummy Shayne!!!! gotta try,gotta try!!!! Thanks a lot for the share!~ <3
Looks really nice :P
I might try to do this next time I go to my aunt's house (my little cousin's need a bit of help to eat fruit)
Take care dear, have a nice day :3

I love this idea! When I was young my mother would core apples, put a little butter and sugar in them, then bake them for a not-incredibly-unhealthy dessert. I'm not sure what proportions she used, but it sounds like an easy thing to experiment with!
Oh that looks delicious. I love cinnamon and I can see that you added a LOT but hey keep experimenting LOL
I will give this a try as I eat too many apples. I try to add Chat masala which you can get from indian stores if you guys have one there or a store where you can find these items.
i had my boyfriend slice it for me LOL. i couldnt do that either plus i have fear of sharp objects that could make me bleed :D :D will check on that almond butter or better yet will ask my bf again to look for it for me. food is his area of expertise :)
thanks rhain! :)
i had to google what stevia is :P i wonder where i can find it here in the PH
that looks tasty! I've been looking for Greek Yogurt for a while now and I can't seem to find it here in Cebu. I'd love to use it for my potato salad recipe. hehe

I think it's fantastic that you're doing topics about food sis, it's refreshing! =D And wow, this is brilliant, I've always wanted a dip for apples coz sometimes it's a bit boring to just eat apple by itself hehe. Cinnamon is definitely healthy, boost up the metabolism really good. :) Thanks for sharing sis, can't wait to try this!
Take care always, love Christine ~ xo

Gaaah! Where do you find time to do DIY/cook/bake/make art? I'm so inggit hahaha! I'm sure that dip tastes heavenly. I can almost taste the cinnamon!
haha thanks lucy! <3
yup you can add cereals pa to make it crunchier and perfect for breakfast :)
i wonder if itll taste as good with bananas, if only i had nutella flavored powder…
it is! :D
Just learned one more thing to make my apples tates even better!!!! I love apples and this recipe looks so delicious. Should also be good for breakfast, maybe?
Hope you're doing well. My hands are a bit better now. It's due to the cold, so only when the wrm weather arrives will they heal completely.
yum, yum. even I can make this :D but the sugar worries me.. I try to avoid sugar as much as possible. Got a healthier alternative for the sugar? honey, perhaps?
I think it's good that you have variety on your blog! I feel that way sometimes too though, haha. :)
Yum, this looks delicious! and it's such a healthy snack idea :D
this looks good-must try!
Oh Elle does have a dreamy makeup closet! But yeah I think it's fun to have different post now and then and I think this is a fun post that's different from the norm. But yeah sounds really yummy, will definitely try it. :)
It's ok, I know that ~branching out~ feel. (“Should I even be including life snippets on my blog?” is a question I think about often)
THIS SOUNDS YUMMY THOUGH. I'd probably go crazy and end up dumping cloves and nutmeg into this mix. It'll be like Christmas on an apple :D
Oh wow, this looks so tasty and healthy! It just looks like icing…mmm….
Will definitely make this but will share with my friends and share my calories this yummy dessert brings
Gosh this looks yummerz, Shayne!! I wish I were a fan of cinnamon, though. :(
i wonder if its sushi chips… random thought lol… or maybe wasabi chips i luv those :3
it is sis :D
thanks too! when you do hope you can share some pics would love to see them :3
ah yes this would be good for that :D or you can also combine banana & nutella… nothing beats that :D
sounds unhealthy so it must be good! hahaha :D will try to ask my bf if he tried any recipe similar to this :P thanks for sharing!
hahaha yuz :3 ive never heard of chat masala before is it sweet? but i think i heard the word masala from a friend who lives in dubai, if im not mistaken she said mashala means beautiful :P
ooo whats the potato salad recipe? :) actually ive never tried greek yogurt before this… and i think it taste like cheese which is nice esp for combining it with other ingredients :D
im glad you liked it sis! :D i didnt know that about cinnamon before this, elle also said something about this recipe being a high protein metabolism booster… good food for a wake me up breakfast :D
thank you! :)
yea sis super dami kong nilagay na cinnamon lol :D its fast to make so it didnt take too much of my time, thank you :3
yup xana it is :3 i added honey cereals to make i crunchier and i really liked it a lot. im glad to hear that your hands are finally healing :) :)
judith suggested stevia to replace sugar :) ive never tried any other sweetener to substitute sugar before so im not familiar with these, but i did add honey cereals to this mixture and i really liked it :D
hahaha thank you, im glad im not alone on this :P
someday i hope ill have the courage to post more fashion related articles or perhaps an OOTD :3 thank you nina! im so glad to hear from you again :)
ah yes nutmeg! going to buy this powder next. im a kitchen noob so i dont own any of these ingredients lol. but im starting to get into making my own food… i wouldn't call it cooking cause all i do basically is mix stuff but hey its a start LOL :D
it does! ^^ its also thick in texture <3
hahaha very smart decision, you can also substitute sugar with something else healthier to make the calories shrink even more :)
oooo like my friend, he hates cinnamon too esp its scent :D kind of reminds me of little ants. i sometimes use cinnamon powder to get rid of them, apparently they hate the smell of cinnamon too :D
Yummers! I'm gonna try this is super easy to make :)
Shayne, Masala means spices and Mashala means beautiful LOL. Your friend in Dubai is talking Arabic lol
ok if i could be good and eat healthy snacks like this i'm sure my body would appreciate me more than it currently does HHAHA
you have NO idea how badly i've been eating lately..must get back on the health eating wagon!!!
A Beautiful Zen
cinnamon sugar apple dip is genius!!! I love my apples, never thought there'd be a dip to go with it, thanks ^_^
