This Granny Smith applesauce is not only 100% raw vegan, but it also comes together in a matter of minutes. Granny Smith apples are the green ones, in case you didn’t know, and they provide a touch of tartness to the applesauce. If you do not enjoy the subtly tart flavor of Granny Smith apples, you can opt for whatever your favorite apple is. Some people may prefer Gala apples, while other may enjoy Honeycrisp or Fuji varieties.
This applesauce only contains five ingredients: Granny Smith apples, water, lemon juice, cinnamon, and nutmeg. The lemon juice complements the tart apple flavor, while the warming cinnamon and nutmeg give you that signature fall essence. Should you require more sweetness, you can drizzle in a little grade A maple syrup or raw agave nectar. We happen to like the tarter flavor that this applesauce provides, but to each their own.
As long as you have a food processor or high-speed blender, this recipe will come together in five minutes or less. Blend everything until you reach your desired consistency. Some people prefer applesauce that is luxuriously smooth, while others enjoy a little chunkiness. You don’t want to have huge apple cubes in there, though! When you serve it in a bowl, feel free to add a little pinch of cinnamon to the top. You can also refrigerate for 30 minutes before you enjoy if you want it colder. We hope you like this healthy snack!
