If you think store-bought applesauce is amazing, chances are, you haven’t tried homemade plant-based applesauce.
This recipe is super easy, yet warm, sweet and packed with incredible flavor. And because you only need just a handful of ingredients, it’s also budget-friendly.
With how easy it is to make it and the kind of results you get – you’ll never go back to store-bought applesauce ever again.
This recipe yields about 3 servings and you can have it cold or warm. Personally, I love this recipe warm because:
1) I can’t wait
2) it is the perfect warm dessert for a not-so-warm spring.
I didn’t have any fancy equipment for this homemade applesauce recipe – just a blender and a pot. If you have one of those apple pit remover things, use that. If you don’t, just chop the apples – eliminating the seeds and pits.
You’ll also want to keep the apple skins on. They’re good for you and why waste food, anyway?
