View Full Version : Green Applesauce-Yum!

I made some "green applesauce" today and it was surprisingly really good so I just thought I would share. I have tons of apples but barely any bananas (my usual companion for blended greens) so I decided I would have to start using some apples.
Here is what I did: the measurements are approximate
-3 Apples (I used 2 golden delicious and 1 pink lady)
-7 cups Swiss Chard (spinach would be delicious as well)
-2 cups kale
Blend up the apples with like 6 ice cubes and a little water. Add the greens and blend until desired applesauce like consistancy. THis recipe makes a lot. I ate all of it but some might not.
Kids tend to like that colored applesauce found in the store...now raw kids can have colored applesauce too! and a much more nutritious version at that :)

Did you really use SEVEN CUPS of greens?

Wow. I'm nervous for green smoothis because I don't do bananas and I don't like the idea of apples for smoothies, but I can do applesauce! Haha, I guess it would be the same thing, but the name makes all the difference :rolleyes: It's a mental thing!

Yup 7 cups! My morning green smoothie is generally like 5 big bananas plus like 12 cups greens (kale or dendelion lately). Even that big smoothie holds me over for about 3 hours :rolleyes: what can I say, I'm a teenager...:D lol!
I hope you enjoy it. I love my bananas but the applesauce was pretty good too. When I first made green smoothies I made them with like one apple (long ago!) and then mostly spinach but it was in liquid form. So I think it will be tasty either way :). Of course my taste changes alllll the time. It's so weird. I have to try things over and over because some months I love something and the next month I just don't want it any more...and then a few months later I crave it. lol who knows. Just keep giving yourself a chance. I love having green smoothies, I eat so many greens lately (and so much fruit too and and and lol) wow I make no sense when I ramble.
LOL! yep :) quite yummy and a lot of it. It was almost too sweet by the end of it, but very good. I hope apples don't constipate! lol
no problem! I am always hesitant to post the little things I make as they are all so simple and I figure no one would really care lol (because they are so simple and such). Let me know if you give it a try, even if you hate it lol.
