This is a simple recipe to prepare fresh baby food for your baby rather than the expensive jars. Found this on a Vegetarian website, I think. It makes 4 cubes, so I put 4 servings since I would consider this a side dish.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 34 cup fruit (Should be fresh & ripe, uncooked peaches, nectarines, bananas, pears, apricots, apples)
  • 1 teaspoon unsweetened fruit juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon-flavored water (1 teaspoon lemon juice to 1 cup water to prevent darkening)


  1. Remove skin and seeds from fruit.
  2. Puree ingredients in baby food mill or blender until smooth.
  3. Serve or freeze.

You would only use this recipe for an older baby. Babies stomachs can haev a hard time digesting the un-cooked nutrients and fiber of fruit and vegetables. You can steam first until tender and then puree.
