Kiwi Apple Zucchini Puree

Kiwi Apple Zucchini Puree | Homemade Baby Food | simplywhisked.com

I’ve been getting pretty frustrated lately with making baby food. With the exception of the broccoli spinach puree with basil that I share a few weeks back, Ellie has really disliked most of the recipes I’ve made.

So I resorted to store bought food. Ugh. Anyway, Marc’s been on my case about making some more food for her (for all the usual reasons), but I’ve just been putting it off and putting it off. It’s not fun when you make the effort to make homemade baby food, and then your baby won’t even eat it.

I finally broke down and made some the other day. All the while, telling Marc that if she didn’t like this batch of food, I was done. Done. I made this kiwi apple zucchini puree and some beef and sweet potato puree. All in less than an hour – including pictures. I know. Could it be any easier?

We gave her the beef and sweet potatoes for dinner while they were still warm, and she ate them faster than any meal she’s ever eaten. And, the next day, she scarfed down the kiwi apple zucchini puree just as fast. I am not kidding you when I say she loved both of them. So, so much.

I guess that means, I’m not off the hook, and I’ll be making many more batches of baby food in the future. At least until Ellie gets a few teeth. If she ever does. At this point, I’m starting to wonder if there are even any teeth under those gums. But, at least she’s eating the food I make now. Stay tuned for the beef and sweet potato recipe.

    Aw yay! I love this recipe and I can only imagine why Ellie loved it. Do you have one of those Babycook thingies that steams everything right there and then mashes it? Seems like it might be worth it actually, I think we have one on our registry

    when my children where that age I made all their food. I kept it simple with one ingredient only. I just blended up whatever we were eating for dinner that night.

    What do you think is better for babies, peeled or unpeeled zucchini?

      I don’t think it makes a difference once it’s pureed.

    Mmmm, this sounds soo yummy, and what a fun way to add some vegetables! My 11-month-old really prefers fruit over veggies, so I think this is a great way to introduce that flavor. Definitely going to be trying this one out. Thank you so much for sharing <3

      It’s really subtle since the flavor of the kiwi is so strong. I think it’s a great way to sneak it in 🙂 Hope you guys like it!

      You know, I really don’t know. I have frozen it, and it made a good solid cube inside of the container. I suppose that would be all you need, right? Maybe just make sure you puree it extra smooth. If you do end up making popsicles out of it, I would LOVE to know how they turn out!

      I’ve tried a few different kinds, but I liked the 1/2 cup Ziploc brand ones. The square ones with the blue lids. They were cheap and easy to stack!

    When you are ready to serve do you microwave it or let it thaw. Maybe a silly question but i am considering trying to make my own babyfood this time around, its seems healthier and may save us some money.

      This one I just let thaw in the fridge. It’s sweeter, like an applesauce, so I served it like that. But, my other recipes that are savory, I thawed in the fridge and heated in microwave before serving.
