With no preservatives and all-natural ingredients, homemade applesauce just tastes better. A lot better. And you’ll be glad you made the effort, however easy it is.


  • 8 (1.20 kg) medium apples, halved, seeded
  • 4 (30 g) pitted medjool dates, or 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 lemon, peeled, or 4 Tablespoons lemon juice


  1. With a peeler or paring knife, remove the peel and white pith from the lemon, leaving just the flesh.
  2. Place all ingredients into the Vitamix container in the order listed and secure the lid.
  3. Start the blender on its lowest speed, then quickly increase to its highest speed, using the tamper to press ingredients toward the blades. Blend for 1 minute.

Chef's Notes

Remove skin from half of the apples for a lighter colored applesauce. If you prefer a chunkier style applesauce, turn to Variable 6 instead of the highest speed and blend.
