  • 1/4 cup pearl barley
  • 4-5 medium apples about 1 1/2 lbs, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons agave nectar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


  • Place barley and apples in large saucepan. Cover with water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until barley and apples are soft, approximately 30 minutes.
  • Drain, then puree in food processor or with a stick blender. Return to saucepan and add agave and lemon juice. Bring to a boil and cook for 5 minutes. If serving warm, skip next step.
  • Remove from heat and cool. Put into another container, then chill in refrigerator.


Too many carbs? Use less agave nectar or leave it out entirely.
