It's a healthy indulgence that can be enjoyed in endless ways, from snacks to desserts. With just a few simple ingredients and some basic cooking skills, you can create a flavorful and colorful applesauce that's sure to impress!

To make this recipe, you'll need fresh strawberries, apples, water, and sugar. The star of the show is the strawberries, which add a burst of sweetness and a gorgeous pink color to the applesauce. Apples provide the base and help to thicken the sauce.


In the insert of an Instant Pot, combine the apples, strawberries, sugar, water, vanilla, and salt. Stir to combine.

Lock the lid onto the Instant Pot and set the knob to "sealing". Press the "manual" or "pressure cook" button and the "+" or "-" until the display reads 5 minutes.

When the cook time is over, allow the pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes, then follow the manufacturer's instructions to perform a quick release for the remaining steam.

Remove the lid, stir, or mash with a potato masher for chunky applesauce, or use a blender or immersion blender for silky smooth applesauce.
