Simple Carrot Puree

Updated: Feb 8

Carrots are a great introduction food for your little one. Making your own puree is not only a simple, fun and fresh way to prepare food for your baby, it is also an incredibly cost effective way to stock up on baby purees. A bunch of carrots from the local farmers market costs about $4 and will stretch to approximately 12 servings of carrot puree. Purees can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week or portion the puree into freezer safe jars. Bonus tip - I use the carrot tops for a carrot top and walnut pesto so you're really getting a lot of bang for your buck with a bunch of carrots and meals for the whole family!

Carrot Purre Recipe:

  • peel and chop carrots into similar size chunks

  • toss them in a pot and cover with cold water

  • boil until fork tender. Drain and reserve 1 cup of cooking water

  • add to a food processor with 1/4 cup of cooking water (add more as needed)

  • Blend until silky smooth

  • portion into freezer safe jars

  • store in the fridge for up to 1 week or freeze for up to 30 days
