Instant Pot Strawberry Applesauce
When I have a bunch of strawberries, and apples in the fruit bowl, there’s a good chance that I will be making some yummy Instant Pot Strawberry Applesauce! This is one of the easiest Instant Pot® recipes you can make. Homemade applesauce is so good!
We always have apples in the house, and if strawberries are past their season, I usually have a bag of strawberries in my freezer! I use them for smoothies and other fun recipes, too! So when I want to make Instant Pot Strawberry Applesauce, I can just dip into that bag and throw them in the pot with the apples!
I love the taste of Instant Pot Strawberry Applesauce. The two fruits compliment each other very well. Sometimes, if I have any, I will also add in one or two ripe pears. Really good! I usually don’t need to add any extra sugar, though your tastes may run sweeter.
This is another fast Instant Pot recipe, and the hardest part is preparing the apples (though if you have apples in your freezer, you are ahead of the game!).
My 10 yeqr old granddaughter makes this recipe by herself (with my supervision). She loves cooking with her Nana!

- 6-8 Apples, peeled, cored, and sliced (any kind. Medium to large size)
- 2-3 cups Strawberries (fresh or frozen)
- 1/4 tsp Cinnamon
- 2 Tbsp Lemon Juice (about 1/2 of a lemon)

Place all ingredients in the inner pot of the pressure cooker.
Put the lid on and set the steam release knob to Sealing position.
Press the Manual (or Pressure Cook) button and then the +/- button to select 4 minutes.
After cooking cycle ends, let the pressure cooker Naturally Release the steam for 15 minutes. Then manually release the remaining steam.
Once all steam/pressure is out of the pot and the pin in the lid drops, open the lid carefully, facing it away from you.
Stir the applesauce. Then use a potato masher to mash up the fruit and get the consistency you like. If it is too watery for you, press the Sauté button and cook out some of the water, stirring constantly.
You can adjust sugar at this point as well. Just taste the applesauce, and stir in more sugar, if desired. Stir once more before transferring to other containers to be sure sugar has completely dissolved.
Use any variety of apples you like. De-stem fresh strawberries before cooking.
