  • 6 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons low-calorie margarine
  • 1/3 cup skim milk
  • 2 tablespoons Splenda Brown Sugar Blend

Directions

Peel turnips and carrots and chop into chunks. Peel and core apple and chop into chunks. Place turnip, carrot, and apple chunks in a 3-quart saucepan. Add 6 cups water and bring to a boil. After boil is reached, reduce heat to medium and cook for 30 minutes or until all pieces are tender. Remove from heat, pour into a colander and let drain completely. Place turnip, carrot, and apple mixture in a food processor (or use handheld mixer and large bowl), combine with all remaining ingredients, and whip until desired consistency (add additional tablespoon of milk if desired).
