‘Apples are a brilliant source of probiotics, which help good bacteria thrive in the gut,’ says Nutritional Therapist Amelia. ‘The majority of our immune system resides in our gut – it’s the headquarters of the whole system. Add a dollop of vanilla coconut cream to the apples for a tasty treat.’

1. Preheat the oven to 150°C/gas mark 2.

2. Place the apples in a heavy, ovenproof dish and sprinkle with the cinnamon and a little water. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes until soft.

3. While the apples are cooking, remove the creamy top part of the coconut milk from the tins and place in a bowl. Add the vanilla and whisk until smooth and creamy. Keep in the fridge until ready to serve.

4. To serve, divide the cooked apple between four dishes and top each portion with a dollop of cream.

If you’re pregnant: Eating apples while pregnant may reduce the chance of your child developing asthma.
