Fruity Applesauce: More than Just Apples

Fruity Applesauce: More than Just Apples

Hi everybody :)

Today recipe is a really super easy one, I can't believe I haven't already shared it. It's great for summer days and when you want a nice refreshing treat. The best part is you get to fix it any way you want. Kids will LOVE it too. If you're health-conscience, you don't have to miss out on the fun, because it can also be sugar-free.

Are you tired of buying the fruit-flavored applesauce in the store with the ONLY FRUIT in it is apple?
Your problem can easily be solve.
By making your own.... here we go...

Fruity Applesauce
1 cup  Applesauce (I used store-brought but I'm sure homemade can be used too)
1/4 -1/2 cup Fruits your choice;  Fresh, diced or sliced  Canned, drained or Frozen, partly thawed
One of the Followings:  (optional)
1 teaspoon Jello: any flavor or same as fruit
1 teaspoon powdered Kool-Aid: any flavor or same as fruit , sweetened or unsweetened
2 Tablespoons Fruit Juice: Fresh, Canned or Frozen; any flavor or same as fruit
Few drops Food Color: any color or same as fruit

Mix all the ingredient together and chill about 1 hour and serve. If you're using frozen fruits skip the chill part and enjoy :)

What I Think:
