Charlotte’s favorite baby food: “orange mix”

Pin It

1 c. carrots (or baby carrots)

1 c. sweet potato

1/2 c. pear or apple

1/2 c. orange juice

1/2 c. water

Peel and dice all veggies/fruit and add to medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, cover, reduce heat and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Let cool. Transfer to a blender and puree, adding cooking liquid and more water if necessary, until smooth.

I usually make a double batch and freeze in ice cube trays. You can begin feeding this mix to a baby at 6 months old. This recipe is a also great base to which to add other building blocks. As Charlotte has gotten older, I’ve added these elements (only one at a time): tiny pasta, cheese (ricotta or cottage), spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, or ginger), or vanilla.
