Cook Time 2 hours
Total Time 2 hours
Servings 4 cups

Ingredients

  • 4-5 apples Cubed, peeled, and cored. I used Fuji, but your favorite baking apples will do.
  • 1 yellow squash Cubed
  • 1 cup blueberries Fresh or frozen
  • 2 cups baby spinach I used a baby spinach kale mix
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 packets Nectresse Optional

Instructions

  1. Peel, core, and chop the apples into cubes and place into slow cooker. Don't worry if the peeling isn't perfect. Just adds some extra fiber and nutrients. Add in the squash and 1/4 cup water. Cooked covered on high for 2 hours.
  2. The apples should be golden in color at this point. Stir and mash up with a potato masher. Add blueberries and continue to cook for 45 minutes.
  3. In a food processor, blend the spinach and 1/4 cup water. Continue to blend until spinach is really fine; pretty much liquified.
  4. Stir and mash the apple-blueberry mixture again. Let cool; then add to the food processor along with the liquified spinach.
  5. Once the mixture is thoroughly pureed add in the sweetener and blend one last time. Enjoy!
