½ cup unsweetened applesauce

***For an extra treat, take some gluten free oats (2/3 cup) and mix them with 1 TBSP of melted real butter, 2 TSP honey, and cinnamon to taste. Spread them out on a baking sheet and toast them at 300 degrees for 15-20 minutes (stirring after 10 minutes). Keep a close eye on the oats and don’t let them burn. Take them out and let them cool completely, stirring them so they don’t clump together. You can sprinkle this on top of your shake or eat a couple of spoonfuls when you drink your shake. This recipe makes 2 servings of the “crisp.”
