About this recipe: Homemade baby food is a smart choice, as you know exactly what you're giving your sweet little baby. Once you've introduced carrots and apples to your baby separately, you can combine them into one puree for a delicious meal your baby is sure to enjoy.


Makes: 4 to 6 portions

  • 2 to 3 carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 1 apple - peeled, cored and diced
  • 20ml breast milk or formula

Prep:2min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:17min 

  1. Place carrots in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 5 minutes. Add apple, then simmer for a further 5 minutes, or till soft. Drain.
  2. Transfer carrot and apple to a blender or food processor. Add milk or formula and puree till smooth. Serve once cooled. To freeze for later: fill an ice cube tray with the puree. Freeze for at least 2 hours, till solid. Remove cubes from tray and place in a freezer bag. To defrost, place in microwave for 30 seconds, or as needed.


You can use water instead of milk or formula to thin the puree.
