  • 2 apples (I use honeycrisp or rave)
  • ¼ cup Water (or as needed for desired texture)


  • Wash and peel apples.
  • Core apples and cut into about 1" chunks.
  • Bring a pot of water to boil on stovetop.
  • Once boiling, add apples to the water.
  • Cook for about 10 minutes (it may need a couple minutes longer for firmer apples. Check if you can easily pierce them with a fork).
  • Once they're cooked, dump into a strainer and rinse with cold water for a couple minutes to cool the apples. You want to minimize continued cooking if they remain hot because the nutrients continue to break down in the heat.
  • Once they're cooled off, add to blender or food processor and add water. Blend until desired consistency is achieved. You may need to add more water. Apples vary in size and moisture so go off texture.
  • Serve fresh, or place into air tight storage and either refrigerate for up to 3 days, or freeze for 3 months.
