In a large pot, place apples into 3/4 cup of water and bring to a boil. Once water has boiled, allow apples to simmer for 5-10 minutes, or until the apples are tender.
Once tender, add lemon juice and cinnamon and blend using a hand blender (or standard blender). Add the remaining 1/4 cup water if necessary to get the smooth creamy consistency.
Allow to cool before serving!

Greek pasta salad
Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook it until al dente (undercook slightly so it is still firm). Strain the pasta and transfer it to a large bowl to cool.
In a small bowl, whisk together red wine vinegar, fresh squeezed lemon juice, garlic, oregano and olive oil.
Add the red onions, tomatoes, cucumbers, black olives, green peppers and feta cheese to the bowl with the pasta.
Pour the dressing over the pasta, tossing to combine, and refrigerate covered for at least 3 hours.
When ready to serve, toss the pasta salad again and enjoy cold or at room temperature.
