This raw apple sauce is a wonderful flavorful spin on a traditional food. It uses a combination of tart with the Granny Smith apple, with the sweetness of raisins as a balance that yields a surprising taste. Once you try this you won't turn back to the one in a jar. It is easy, healthy, and delicious!
Three simple ingredients makes a dish that will be a hit for the entire family. I have used this recipe successfully for various types of people. It is a great way to get fresh fruit into seniors or someone who has a digestive challenge.
However, if you would like more texture, you can process the apples less and create more of a fruit salad look as shown below.
This dish is a great way to help meet your daily fruit intake requirement. It is all raw and delicious! Granny Smith apples are alkaline based to help balance the body’s pH. The lack of sweetness makes it a good choice if you are challenged with a condition called candida (raisins are reduced or eliminated). Diabetics could also have this dish in moderation.
2 large Granny Smith apples: wash, remove core and seeds; do not remove skin
½ cup organic raisins
Juice of 1 orange (Valencia if possible)
½ ripe banana (chopped)
¼ tsp. maple syrup (optional)
Place apples, raisins, and orange juice in a food processor or blender. Pulse in a blender or a food processor until raisins are of puree consistency. Make sure to scrape sides of bowl to ensure complete mixture without chunks. Place into serving bowl. Add maple syrup and mix well. Serve immediately. Serves 2.
Refrigerate uneaten portion in an airtight container to preserve the enzymes.
