Halloween Brain Mash (aka Cinnamon Kale Applesauce)

The most creeptastic way to eat your fruit and veggies during Halloween! No added sugar!!
Servings 4

Ingredients

Brain Mash

  • 2 cups kale destemmed
  • 2 apples cored and diced
  • 2 carrots diced
  • 1 cup purple grapes
  • 3 tsp cinnamon or more to taste

Apple Brains

  • 2 apples soft and ripe
  • 1 lemon squeezed
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

Instructions

  1. To make chunky: add all ingredients to a food processor and blend for one minute until pureed

  2. To make smooth: layer ingredients in a food processor in the order of grapes, apples, carrots and kale with grapes being closest to the blade. Process until smooth. It should be the consistency of applesauce or a thick smoothie. If it is still too chunky, add some water or apple juice to thin out the mixture. If using a bullet blender, you may need to do in 2 parts because all of the ingredients will not fit at the same time.

  3. To carve apple brains: Peel apples and then cut in half. Gently remove the hard core, keeping the halves intact. Carve a line down the middle for the longitudinal fissure using the bottom of a spoon or fork. Carve out the gyri and sulci the same way, making random scrolling marks along the sides of the longitudinal fissure. Keep a glass of water nearby to rinse spoon/fork as you carve. Once apple is carved, rinse gently under water to remove excess apple shavings. Mix lemon juice and cinnamon and brush over apple to help preserve.
