So my kids won’t eat squash, but they will devour the baby food pouches that have squash in it. I decided to make my own pureed squash and fruit and they went nuts for it! I also like it and thought that the consistency was kind of like pudding, so Squashy Pudding was born. They love it so much that I oftentimes will save it for “dessert.”
2 cups roasted butternut squash
1/2 cup water
1 cup applesauce or cooked pears
To cook the pears: I peel them and cut them up into little chunks. I cook it in a saucepan with a little bit of water. Once they have softened, then they can go into the pudding after being cooled. Sometimes I like to add cinnamon to the pears for extra flavor. You might not like eating over-ripe pears, but in the pudding it is perfect.
If you do not have time for the pears, applesauce is a great alternative.
1. Let the squash cool. Then measure 2 cups into the food processor.
2. Add the fruit
3. Add the water. May want to add some more or less, depending on the consistency you like.
5. Devour! 🙂
