Ice skater shares apple dessert recipe


Sasha Cohen is the living definition of beauty, style and grace. She’s an Olympic figure-skating medal winner and former U.S. champion who continues to thrill her fans worldwide as the headliner for the Smucker’s Stars on Ice tour.

Cohen was born in California, and when not training or on the ice, she’s busy with acting, modeling and a variety of charitable causes.

She’s also been featured in many TV shows and major motion pictures, and even worked as a correspondent for “Inside Edition” covering the Oscars’ red carpet events.

And you’ve seen her stunning smile in the Got Milk ad campaigns.

Cohen is a true foodie, always seeking a new culinary adventure. Her autobiography, “Fire On Ice,” is published by Harper Collins. For more info: www.starsonice.com and www.sashacohen.com

You knew we had to ask: What’s your favorite frozen treat?

“Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream. Strawberry cheesecake or peach cobbler flavor. I enjoy it once a week.”

Tell us about a very memorable meal you had somewhere in the world.

“My meal at Per Se in New York City. We were on the waitlist for weeks and got in last-minute. It was an amazing meal, with creative food, a stunning view and down-to-earth service. They even lent me a cashmere scarf since I was cold!”

How do you like to use Smucker’s products?

“I love them all. Especially the sundae toppings.”

Of all the other Stars On Ice skaters, who can eat the most food at a sitting, and who is the funniest to have around the dinner table?

“It’s definitely John Zimmerman. He’s the biggest eater, but has an incredible body. Everyone is so much fun. We are so lucky to have such a great closely knit skating family.”

The rink should really be made of:

“One day I’d like to see them try to make the ice out of frozen yogurt, so you could eat the ice chips.”


4 Fuji or Pink Lady apples

1 tablespoon of sugar in the raw

1 cup of plain Greek yogurt

1 tablespoon honey

2 tablespoons caramelized or toasted walnuts

In a 375 F oven, place a baking dish with 4 apples drizzled with the sugar and fill the dish with a half cup of water. Bake for 55 minutes or until done. Cool slightly. Serve in individual plates with two spoons of Greek yogurt drizzled with honey and sprinkled with caramelized walnuts.
