Carrot apple pulp drops

This recipe is totally inspired from the carrot cookies I had baked a few years back from Usha’s veg inspirations.

Carrot apple juice

Though I would prefer to eat fruits as it is,sometimes its just nice to combine a few fruits together which go well with each other to create another interesting taste.

As the apples were really sweet, it required very less sugar.It also gave an immense satisfaction of sneeking in some raw carrots which otherwise is not so frequently consumed as a salad at my place!!
