Vegan Gluten-Free Apple Crumble with Magnesium L-Threonate “Icing”

Wondering what to give dad this year for Father’s Day? Well, in our opinion, nothing beats giving the gift of a *healthy* dessert or meal made with love to those we care about… :)

This apple crumble is out of this world delicious, and is topped with an added bonus of our Vanilla Creme Magnesium L-Threonate. This formula has been developed by a team of scientists at MIT, and has been shown to increase brain levels of magnesium much higher than any other form of magnesium.

In the world we are living in today, many people are extremely deficient in magnesium, which contributes to chronic conditions such as heart disease, loss of cognitive function, muscle cramps, mental health disorders, fatigue, and more. Magnesium is required for 80% of the body’s metabolic functions, and plays an especially critical role in controlling the firing of synapses in the brain which helps to improve memory.

With all of this being said, instead of topping this crumble with sugar loaded ice cream that only contributes to more health problems, we got the idea to drizzle them with our Magnesium L-Threonate, which definitely won’t disappoint in terms of flavor AND health benefits!

This week, shop Magnesium L-Threonate as part of our Father’s Day Bundle and receive 15% off your order when you use the code “DAD15” at checkout.

Be sure to save this recipe for later & share it with your friends and family to spread the health and yumminess!
