SCD Recipe: Instant Pot Apple-Mango Sauce

Making applesauce in an Instant Pot is quick and easy. What’s great is you can experiment with different flavors by adding in different fruits and spices. This Apple-Mango sauce is so refreshing. It has a light, creamy texture and is full of tropical mango flavor.

This sauce is great for breakfast, snacks, or a light dessert. I like to mix it with yogurt.

I used a combination of Fuji and Granny Smith apples for this because I like a slightly tart sauce, but you can use any type of apples you like. The best apples for applesauce are: Fuji, Honeycrip, Gala, Golden Delicious, Pink Lady, and Granny Smith.

Apple-Mango Sauce and SCD Yogurt

When you make applesauce in an Istant Pot you don’t necessarily have to peel the apples. The apple skin will get very sauce and can be pureed into the sauce. However, if you like a chunkier sauce you might be able to detect the skins so you may want to peel them anyway.

Recipe Notes

It is optional to peel the apples. The apple skin will get very soft in the Instant Pot and will puree with the rest of the sauce. However, it may still be detectable, especially if you like chunkier sauce.
