Keto Chayote Apple Sauce
- 2 Chayote Squash
- 1/4 tsp Apple extract
- 1/4 cup lemon juice
- 2 Tbsp keto friendly sweetener
- 2 tsp cinnamon
Peal squash and take out the seeds.
Cut into slices or chunks and place in a pan of water. Heat on medium high until it reaches a full boil.
Boil until squash pieces are tender.
Drain off water and place squash and other ingredients into blender and puree. You can puree it almost smooth or leave some chunks, based on your personal preference.
Works great in recipes calling for applesauce. If you are using it in place of unsweetened applesauce and don't need an apple flavor, simply leave out the flavorings and sweetener, chayote then becomes a silent partner in the recipe as it has a very delicate flavor that will not overpower your recipes.
