Simple Baby Purees – Part 2

I’m still in the introducing and checking for allergies phase, but I’ve made a few new combos. Dylan thinks it is ABSOLUTELY disgusting that I would mix broccoli and apple together and put it in his poor child’s mouth, but I haven’t disliked a single puree I’ve made, and neither has Caleb so WHAT DOES THAT SAY? That I am a chef. It says that I am a chef and broccoli and apple CAN be mixed together.


Sweet Potato, Carrot and Apple


What you need:

  • 1 sweet potato
  • 4 carrots
  • 4 apples
  • boiled water, cooled
  1. Peel and chop everything
  2. Steam the carrots and Sweet Potato until soft
  3. Let apple simmer in a saucepan or pot until soft
  4. When everything is ready, allow to cool
  5. Blend everything together, add water until desired consistency
  6. Freeze in cute freezer pods

Broccoli and Apple:


What you need:

  • Half a head of Broccoli
  • 6-7 Apples
  • Boiled, cooled water

(It is not recommended for babies younger than 6 months to eat broccoli, and if you are introducing it for the first time, use a small amount of broc with a really large amount of whatever you’re mixing with it so that it’s not so potent.)

  1. Chop just the florets off the broccoli and dispose of the stems or keep them for yourself. Broccoli makes little ones quite gassy and the stems apparently are worse than the actual broccoli florets.
  2. Peel the apple and let it simmer on stove til soft
  3. Blend all together, adding water til it’s how you want
  4.  Freeze. You will need to double the quantity if you want to make a lot, because this filled about one tray of 8 pods for me 🙂

I’ve decided that I’m just going to post nice puree combinations from now on because I feel like you get the whole how-to-make-baby-puree now. Boil/steam/bake veggies, blend, add water, Boom.

When things get a little more interesting I’ll go back to posting recipes but I really think you guys can take it from here 🙂
