Description

Easy homemade baby food packed with nutrition. Little ones will love it!


Ingredients


Instructions

  1. Steam carrots 5-10 minutes until soft. (Timing will vary based on how thick you slice them; try to keep even sizing.)
  2. Cool 5 minutes or so.
  3. Start with the low end of the ginger and salt (Use the code kitchenstewardship for 15% off of your first purchase). Blend all ingredients together. Use a blender to be very creamy and smooth or an immersion blender for quick and easy (but not as smooth).
  4. Taste and adjust ginger and salt if necessary.
  5. Why butter? The saturated fat is not only sooooo good for baby’s developing brain but also allows our bodies to assimilate the vitamins in the carrots. Without fat, the carrots aren’t nearly as helpful! I add butter as often as I can to baby food. 🙂

Notes

Dairy-free? Use coconut milk and coconut oil. Feel free to use breastmilk instead of yogurt either way.

I choose organic ingredients for my babies, because I feel like every chemical has a greater effect on their tiny bodies.

Freezes fine.
