6+ Months

This recipe requires minimal skills.

Total time
30 minutes (5 minutes for preparation and 25 minutes for cooking).

4 servings (1 serving = 2-3 tablespoons for a 6-month-old)

Dietary Needs
Gluten-free, Dairy-free, and Vegan


  • 1 medium sweet potato, peeled and cubed
  • 2 medium carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 20-30 ml (about 1-2 tablespoons) Water or breast milk/formula (for blending)



  1. Steam the sweet potato and carrot until tender (about 20-25 minutes).
  2. Reserve some steaming water or have breast milk/formula ready.
  3. Blend the steamed vegetables, adding the reserved water or breast milk/formula until you achieve the desired consistency. Increase by 10-20 ml increments if a thinner consistency is desired, especially as your baby becomes more accustomed to solids and can handle slightly thicker textures.

It’s always best to add liquid gradually while blending and check the consistency. You can always add more liquid to thin it out but can’t remove it once it’s too thin. Remember, the goal is to achieve a smooth, easily swallowable texture that your baby can manage without difficulty.

Feeding Tips

Introduce one food at a time and wait a few days before introducing another to watch for any allergic reactions. Offer small amounts and be patient; it may take a few tries for your baby to get used to new tastes and textures.


Store the puree in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days, or freeze it in ice cube trays for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator when ready to use.
