Servings: 6 servings
- 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.
