Eating enjoyment is a moving target,
pursue your taste - pursue the yum.

If a recipe calls for an ingredient not available where you normally shop, you can try this list of sources for uncommon foods and kitchen tools.

Apple carrot mash:
2 tablespoons (.4 ounce) apple fiber powder
  or 1 tablespoon whole apple powder
2 teaspoons (.13 ounce) carrot powder
1/8 cup (1 ounce) sunflower seed butter 
1 teaspoon (.15 ounce) oil
1 teaspoon (.17 ounce) sugar (use 2 teaspoons if apple is low sweetness), 
  If the apple is exceptionally sweet and mild use 1/2 teaspoon sugar.
  If the apple is exceptionally tart and acid use 3/4 teaspoon extra sugar.
1 pinch salt
Put all ingredients into a mixing and/or portion bowl and mix.

Warm in microwave oven if desired, about 20 seconds.

If the mash has a bitter flavor, mix with 1 tablespoon water, heat in a microwave oven until boiling hot, about 1 minute 10 seconds in a 1000 watt oven, if using a 600 watt oven, heat 2 minutes.

Sweet and flavorful enough to be a dessert, looks a good bit like roasted peanut butter.
