This recipe is very simple and delicious. You can give to baby morning, lunch or evening and even combine with favourite cereal. When I first gave it to R he found the orange flavour a bit overwhelming, but after a couple more tries he loved it.
- 2 small apples (smith grannies or pink ladies work great)
- 1/2 orange (juice and zest)
- 300ml water
- Pinch of mixed spice
Cut apples in 1cm cube approx. Optional: you can peel apple if giving to a young baby.
Pour the water and juice in a pot and place apples in a steaming bowl. Spread mixed spice and orange zest on top. Steam apples for 15 mins. or until soft.
Place the apples in a blender along with some of the remaining water (don’t pour all at once). Start on a low speed and add bits of water until you get a smooth but firm consistency.
As baby gets older (7 months and older) you can leave little chunks for them to practice chewing. Mix with porridge or weetbix. Enjoy!
