This Homemade Strawberry Applesauce is made with lots of strawberries (2 heaping cups), apples, a drizzle of vanilla extract, and a pinch of cinnamon. No added sugar! It’s very easy to make stovetop, and is full of bold fruit flavor.


  • 6 large apples peeled, cored and chopped
  • 2 heaping cups strawberries, hulled and chopped
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon


  • Simmer Apples: In a large stockpot, bring the apples, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and water to a boil. Reduce to a simmer over medium-low heat, cover and cook for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  • Blend: For a chunky sauce, mash the apples and strawberries with the back of a wooden spoon. For a smoother sauce, transfer all ingredients into a blender or food processor and puree for 30-60 seconds or until you achieve your desired consistency. I pureed mine for 45 seconds using an immersion blender. If pureeing for baby, puree for 1-2 minutes or until very smooth.
