Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to the boil. Add peas, cover, and steam until tender, about 15 minutes.
Place peas and breast milk in a blender or food processor and puree until creamy. Strain the mixture through a fine sieve to remove any lumps.
Spread pea mixture into an ice cube tray, cover with cling film and freeze until solid, 2 to 3 hours. Transfer frozen cubes to a resealable plastic bag and store in the freezer.
To serve, heat cubes in the microwave for about 30 seconds until warm but not hot. Stir thoroughly.
You can substitute formula or water for the breast milk.
Store frozen cubes in the freezer for up to 2 months.
