Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • 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.
