Apple and Ricotta Puree

Apple and Ricotta Puree, a bariatric friendly pureed recipe

If you’ve recently had bariatric surgery, approach the puree phase with confidence this holiday season. Just because your stomach has new restrictions, doesn’t mean you should miss out on the holiday flavors you grew up loving. Today we’re whipping up our Apple Ricotta puree.

Sweet and absolutely tasty, we guarantee this will be at the top of your puree favorite during those chilly nights. Everything you love about holiday dessert flavors is brought to you in puree form. 

The baking process takes about 40 minutes in the beginning, but we promise it is all worth it in the end. One of our favorite features about this recipe is that our kitchen was filled with a holiday aroma of apple and cinnamon which kept spirits bright and taste buds ready for the final product. 

Once out of the oven, we removed the cinnamon stick and chopped the apple up, and placed it into our food processor. We went with a bullet blender as we’ve come to find out that a bullet blender is the quickest way to get the smoothest puree texture.
