Sweet Corn, Squash + Apple Baby Food Puree
This Sweet Corn, Squash and Apple Baby Food Puree combination tastes so good! Filled with 3 wholesome ingredients, this puree not only tastes great but it is also loaded with essential vitamins and minerals to help baby grow big and strong.
Servings: 18 ounces
- 2 cups sweet corn fresh or frozen
- 1 cup apples peeled, cored and chopped
- 1 cup butternut squash peeled and chopped
In a medium saucepan, bring 2 inches of water to a boil. In a steamer basket, add in the butternut squash, cover, and steam for 4 minutes.
Add the apples on top of the butternut squash, cover, and steam for an additional 2 minutes.
Add the corn on top, cover and steam for an additional 2 minutes. Let cool slightly. Reserve the steamer water.
Place all of the ingredients into the blender and puree for 1-2 minutes on high or until the puree is completely smooth. If puree is too thick, add in reserved steamer water, breast milk, formula or stock, a tablespoon at a time until you reach your desired consistency.
Serve and enjoy!
Time Saving Tip: if you are short on time, you can use pre-cut butternut squash in this recipe, which is usually found in the produce section by the salad mixes at most grocery stores.
Spice it Up: Feel free to add 1/2 tsp chopped chives, 1/8 tsp garlic powder, 1/4 tsp mild chili powder or 1/2 tsp chopped cilantro to this puree for some extra spice.
