Peach + Carrot Baby Food
Made with 2-ingredients - peaches and carrots, which are roasted to bring out their own natural flavors. Great for babies 6 months and older - stage two puree.
Servings: 15 ounces
- 3 carrots, peeled and roughly chopped
- 2 cups peaches, fresh or frozen (thawed if using frozen), peeled and sliced
- 1/4 tsp mild chili powder (optional)
Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicon mat.
Place carrots onto the baking sheet and sprinkle with chili powder (if using). Roast in the oven for 20 minutes.
Add the peaches to the baking sheet with the carrots and bake for an additional 15 minutes or until the carrots can be pricked with a fork and peaches are roasted and juicy. Let cool slightly.
Transfer all of the ingredients into a blender and puree for 1-2 minutes on med-high speed, until creamy and smooth. If the puree is too thick you may need to add some additional liquid (breast milk, formula, water or stock) to get desired consistency, add 1/4 cup increments at a time.
Serve or freeze for another meal.
Age: 6+ months
Yield: 15 ounces
Notes on Spices: using the mild chili powder is optional. You can also use mint, a splash of lemon or lime juice, 1/2 tsp coconut oil, 1 tsp chopped basil, 1 tsp cinnamon or 1/4 tsp fresh ginger.
Storage: Fridge – store in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days. Freezer – can be frozen for up to 4 months (this and this are my favorite freezer storage containers).
