Dice the Apples 2 Minutes

Halve the Butternut Squash 3 Minutes
Lay the butternut squash on a cutting board. Hold the squash with your left hand. With the knife in your right hand pick the mid way point between the bottom and the top stem. SLOWLY Pierce the squash at the midway point with the knife edge facing away from you and cut 1/2 of the Squash in Half. Be careful to do this slowly and methodically so the knife doesnt skip off the squash and cut you. Turn the squash around and follow the same directions until the entire squash is cut in half. Video
Bake the Butternut Squash 45 Minutes
Place the butternut squash on a pan and place in the oven at 450 degrees for 45 minutes. Start out with the squash sitting skin down then half through
Puree the Veggies and Fruit 5 Minutes
Place the Harder and Denser Veggies or Fruit in the blender first with water and start blending. IE: Raw apples are more dense then baked squash. As the harder ingredients start blending slowly add the other softer ingredients to the blender as it is blending. Add more water if the puree is chunky. Be sure to look at the blending puree as you are adding water to gauge how much water to add.
