  • 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
  • 1/4 tsp ground turmeric


  • 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.
