Homemade Baby Puree #Carrot With Butternut Squash

I have been making my own baby puree for several months. I believe that it is safer and healthier for my baby. My puree doesn't have any preservatives, it's economical, the fruits and vegetables are fresh and I know what's in it. The only way of preserving it is through freezing. When feeding, I usually add water or breast milk to make it less sticky. My baby takes multivitamins and I add that too. That way it's easier for me to give him is vitamins since it has a bitter taste. Today, I made carrots with butternut squash   and apple with butternut squash purees. I usually, add pumpkin pie spice during blending, it gives that extra boost of  pie taste. My baby just love it. Making this is very easy and I will share to you how.

Carrot with Butternut Squash Puree

What you need:

2 cups chopped carrot
2 cups chopped butternut squash
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 1/2 cup water


  1. Roast the peeled and chopped carrots and butternut squash for 45 minutes in 425 °F. 
  2. After roasting, let it cool for few minutes before blending.
  3. Place the roasted vegetables on a baby food blender, add 1/2 cup water, pumpkin pie spice and start blending. During blending you can add a small amount of water until you reached your preferred consistency of the puree. Do not add too much water or else it will turned into juice. 
  4. When you are done blending, put the puree on ice cube trays and freeze overnight.
  5. Once the puree is frozen, remove it from the tray and put it in a Ziploc bag. Write a label for puree's name and date it was made. 

If you want to make the apple with butternut squash puree, you can use the same procedure above. I made 4 trays of baby puree because I will be sharing some to my friend's babies. I hope your babies will love it too.
