Here is a simple smoothie with a pleasant sweet and tart flavor and plenty of nutrients. Blend one carrot, one apple, and water sufficient to blend, and garnish with apple slices if desired. For a creamier texture, walnuts or cashews can be added to the blender. Ginger may be added for flavor. This can be made into a green smoothie by adding a handful of mild-flavored greens.
This recipe can be used as a substitute for applesauce.
