  • 2 cups of fresh or frozen peas
  • A handful of fresh mint leaves, washed
  • 60 ml (1/4 cup) of water, formula, or breastmilk, with more or less to achieve desired consistency



  1. If using fresh peas, wash them thoroughly. For frozen peas, thaw them slightly.
  2. Steam the peas for 7-10 minutes until tender. You can also boil them in a small amount of water if you prefer, but steaming preserves more nutrients.
  3. Wash the mint leaves and chop them roughly.
  4. Once the peas are cooked, let them cool slightly. Then, transfer them to a blender or food processor.
  5. Add the chopped mint and start with 60 ml (1/4 cup) of your chosen liquid (water for a lighter version, formula, or breastmilk for added nutrition).
  6. Blend until smooth, adding more liquid as needed to reach the desired consistency. The amount of liquid can be adjusted based on whether you want a thinner or thicker puree.

Remember, when introducing new foods to your baby, it’s crucial to monitor for any signs of allergies or intolerances. Introducing one new food at a time can help identify any potential issues. If using formula or breastmilk, consider the added nutritional benefits and choose what aligns best with your feeding practices.

Feeding Tips

  • Start with a small spoonful to see how your baby likes the taste.
  • Mix with other purees for variety and to introduce new flavors gradually.
  • Always supervise your baby while eating to ensure they are safely enjoying their meal.


  • Refrigerate leftover puree in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
  • Freeze portions in ice cube trays or small containers for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator before serving.
