Strawberry Applesauce

1/2 cup strawberries
3 apples
1 tsp lemon juice

Rinse fruit. Slice the stems off the strawberries. Cut the apples into quarters, only popping out the seeds and removing the stems. Add all ingredients to the Vitamix. Select Variable 1 and increase speed to 5. Blend for 10 seconds and push fruit down with the tamper. Serve chilled. Makes 2 cups.

Taste score: 10/10

Likes: I love this raw recipe, because the Vitamix can handle the strawberry seeds and tough apple skin with no problems! This applesauce is refreshing and the strawberries add a fun spin to a traditional dish.

Dislikes: If you let it sit, the applesauce will get watery and separate, but it's nothing a little stirring can't fix.

Nutritional score: 10/10 

Both apples and strawberries have lots of fiber and vitamin C. And the sweetness of this applesauce only comes from natural sugars.
