Immune Boost Puree for Baby + Toddler
Filled with carrots, apples, fresh orange juice, ginger and turmeric, this puree will help keep your kiddo from getting sick all season long.
Servings: 25 ounces
- 4 medium carrots peeled and roughly chopped
- 4 apples cored and roughly chopped
- 1/2 orange
- 1/2-1 inch fresh ginger peeled and finely chopped

In a medium pot, bring 2 inches of water to a boil over medium high heat. Place a steamer basket into the pot. Add in the carrots and then the apples, in that order, to the steamer basket. Steam for 12-15 minutes or until carrots are tender and can be pricked with a fork. Let cool slightly.
Transfer the carrots and apples to a blender or food processor. Squeeze the juice of the 1/2 of the orange into the blender and add in the ginger and the turmeric. Puree for 60-90 seconds or until completely smooth. Serve as a meal for baby or spoon into reusable pouches for your older kiddos.
