Baby Food Puree

Sweet Potato & Cauliflower


  • 150g of sweet potato, peeled and diced
  • 70g of cauliflower


  • 1. Steam the diced sweet potato and cauliflower florets for 8 – 10 minutes.
  • 2. Set them aside to cool slightly. Once cooled, place the vegetables into a blender, add a teaspoon of vegetable oil and pulse until smooth.

Broccoli, Potato and Pea


  • 100g potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 100g of broccoli
  • 50g of frozen peas


  • 1. Boil the potatoes until tender. Strain out the water, add in a teaspoon of vegetable oil and mash the cooked potatoes.
  • 2. Boilthe broccoli and frozen peas in a separate pan. Don’t over-boil or the vegetables will lose all of their flavour. Once cooled, stain the water and blend the cooked peas and broccoli into a puree.
  • 3. Add the puree to the mashed potato and stir until well combined.

Butternut, apple and banana


  • 1/2 a cup of butternut, peeled and diced
  • 1 apple, peeled,cored and diced
  • 1 ripe banana


  • 1. Steam the butternut and apple until soft. The butternut will take a little longer to cook than the apple, so start with it first before adding in the apples.
  • 2. Strain the water from the butternut and apple mix before setting it aside to cool. In the meantime, mash the banana.
  • 3. Place the cooled butternut and apples into a blender and puree until smooth. Once smooth, stir in the mashed bananas.


  • *Don’t have a blender? Use a masher.
  • *If you don’t have a steamer, simply boil the cauliflower and sweet potatoes until soft and strain out the water.
  • *If you’re making your purees in advance, spoon or pour your baby food purees into an ice cube tray, cover with cling wrap and store it in the freezer.
  • *If the texture seems too thick, you can add in a little formula, Rooibos tea, or breastmilk.
