EasyPeasie Applesauce Recipe


First, here's your quick and "easy peasy" recipe... 

This is a simple, yet favorite and fun recipe! Add 1 teaspoon of EasyPeasie Red Blend to a 4oz cup of applesauce. Stir and watch the applesauce change colors. Enjoy! Every teaspoon adds a toddler serving of veggie nutrition.


And here's your detailed recipe...


  • 6 large apples (preferably a mix of sweet varieties like Fuji, Gala, or Honeycrisp)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar (adjust based on the sweetness of your apples and personal preference)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons EasyPeasie Red Blend
  • A pinch of salt


  1. Prepare the Apples: Wash, peel, core, and chop the apples into small chunks.

  2. Cook the Apples: In a large saucepan, combine the chopped apples, water, sugar, and a pinch of salt. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high heat. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low and let it simmer. Cover the saucepan and cook for 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the apples are soft and tender.

  3. Add EasyPeasie Red Blend: Once the apples are soft, remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the EasyPeasie Red Blend. Mix well to ensure the blend is evenly distributed.

  4. Mash or Blend: For a chunky applesauce, use a potato masher or the back of a fork to mash the apples to your desired consistency. For a smoother applesauce, you can use an immersion blender or transfer the mixture to a regular blender and blend until smooth.

  5. Season: Taste the applesauce and adjust the sweetness if needed. If you're using cinnamon, stir it in now.

  6. Cool and Store: Allow the applesauce to cool to room temperature. Once cooled, transfer it to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator. It should stay fresh for up to a week.

  7. Add EasyPeasie Red Blend: Once the apples are soft, remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the EasyPeasie Red Blend. Mix well to ensure the blend is evenly distributed.

  8. Serve: Enjoy your homemade applesauce with a nutritious twist from EasyPeasie Red Blend! It's perfect as a snack, a side dish, or even as a topping for desserts like ice cream or pancakes.


Note: The addition of EasyPeasie Red Blend not only enhances the nutritional value of the applesauce but also gives it a unique flavor and color twist. It's a great way to sneak in some extra veggies into a classic favorite!
