Low Syn Apple Strudel

Christmas is my favourite time of year for many reasons, one of which is (of course) the food!

The thing that I could never get enough of though, was a classic Apple Strudel which was always on offer in my house at this time of year.

I’ve been laid up with a cold for the past week (not ideal when you’re seven months pregnant!) so I’ve been looking for ways to pack as much nutrition into my diet as possible, which is where this soup has come from.

I recently found myself becoming totally nostalgic for some of my childhood puddings, the ones that my grandma cooked better than anyone else!
