  • 6 apples cored and roughly chopped (I left the skins on for extra fiber, but feel free to peel)
  • 2 large carrots roughly chopped
  • 2 cups cubed butternut squash (you can use fresh or frozen)
  • juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup water


  • Combine all ingredients in a large pot. Stir to combine.
  • Cover the pot and bring everything to a boil over high heat.
  • Reduce heat to a simmer and cook covered for 15-20 minutes until apples and veggies are tender and cooked through.
  • Using an immersion blender, puree the sauce to your desired consistency. If you don’t have an immersion blender, you can let the sauce cool a bit and then transfer it to a blender to puree. For a chunkier sauce, use a potato masher to crush the fruits and veggies.
  • Enjoy warm or let cook completely before storing in an air tight container in fridge for up to a week or in your freezer for months.
