Peach + Vanilla Baby Food Puree
Smooth and creamy, this homemade Peach + Vanilla Baby Puree delivers big on taste with naturally sweetened peaches and flecks of vanilla bean.
Servings: 12 ounces
- 3 fresh peaches or 1-12 ounce bag frozen peaches
- 1/2 vanilla bean pod or 1/2 teaspoon vanilla bean extract
- 1/4 cup of water
If using fresh peaches, peel and pit the peaches.
Cut the vanilla bean pod in half and then slice open lengthwise. Take the back of your knife or spoon and scrape out all of the vanilla bean, reserve.
In a medium saucepan, add the peaches and heat over medium-low heat for 5 minutes (10 minutes if frozen).
Using a slotted spoon, transfer the peaches to a blender or food processor, leaving excess water in the saucepan. Add the vanilla bean and puree until smooth.

Super Tip: Be a foodie role model for baby – this puree is great to eat alongside baby right from the start. This peach puree is wonderful served over Greek yogurt for a yummy breakfast or snack for both you (I like to add some chopped nuts and granola to mine) and baby.
