Peach Puree

At any time of the year, this Peach Puree is a great baby food that’s similar to applesauce, but which provides a different flavor experience. We love this as an early puree, but also as a food that everyone in the family enjoys stirred into yogurt and oatmeal.

It’s so easy to make in minutes using fresh or frozen fruit. And you don’t even have to peel the fruit.

TIP: You can make the small batch as directed here, or double or triple it to make enough to share with the family.

Ingredients You Need

To make this simple peach puree baby food, you just need peaches. You can use ripe fresh peaches or thawed frozen ones depending on the time of year and what you may have access to.

If using frozen fruit, thaw completely before you begin the recipe.

TIP: You can add a little cinnamon or ground ginger for additional flavor if you’d like.

Step-by-Step Instructions

Here’s a look at the easy process involved in making this recipe. Scroll down to the bottom of the post for the full information.

  1. Add your peach slices to a blender.
  2. Blend, adding a little water, breastmilk, or formula as needed to thin.
  3. Strain out the skin pieces through a small strainer if desired. (I use one meant for tea.)
  4. Serve or store for later.

TIP: The consistency of your blended peaches will depend on the water content in the fruit, so you may or may not need to add additional liquid.

Straining small pieces of skin is an optional step.

How to Serve Peach Puree to Babies and Toddlers

You can serve this stage 1 baby food to a 6 or 7 month old from a spoon as it’s a very smooth puree.

For older babies and toddlers, you can stir it into whole milk yogurt, oatmeal or Baby Rice Cereal to add more nutrition., or simply serve it like you would applesauce in a small bowl.

TIP: A typical serving for a 6-7 month old may be 1/2-1 frozen bean cube. An older baby may eat 1-2 cubes.
