  • 8 small apples cored, peeled, diced
  • 1 cup blueberries fresh or frozen
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • ¼ cup water (more for a thinner consistency)


  • Peel the apples, remove their cores and dice into small pieces.
  • Add the apples, blueberries, maple syrup and water to a large pan. If using frozen blueberries add a tablespoon of water rather than ¼ cup, then more if required as the berries will release liquid. Stir to combine.
  • Bring the pan to a light boil, then reduce the heat and cook for 20 minutes on a very light simmer. Stir occasionally. If the apples cannot easily be pierced with a knife, continue to heat for a further 3-5 minutes. The blueberries should be mostly dissolved to liquid.
  • Allow to cool. Transfer the mixture to a food processor or blender and blend. If the mixture is too thick add a little more water.


  • Adjust the amount of water to preference of how thick you prefer the sauce to be.
  • If using frozen blueberries, you likely need slightly less water as they release their own liquid.
  • Blend to the texture you prefer. Blending longer will give a smoother consistency.
