Apple pie a la mode

An apple a day fights belly fat, but in the form of apple pie with a scoop of ice cream? Not quite. A single slice with a vanilla scoop can set you back roughly 500 calories. The high calorie count comes from the rich butter crust and its gooey, sweet filling, which is traditionally made with a cup or more of sugar.

For a revamped version of your fall favorite, try our healthier apple dessert and pass on the ice cream.
