Ingredients

  • 3 ripe peaches (or more, if desired)

Instructions

Fresh Peach Puree

  • Rinse peaches with water and cut each in half. Remove the pit and chop into large slices. Place peaches (with the skin on) in a high powered blender or food processor.

  • Blend until totally smooth and the skin is no longer detectable. If there are still little pieces of the skin present, you can strain them out using a fine mesh strainer. Makes about 1 1/2 cups of fresh peach puree.

Skin-Free Peach Puree

  • Rinse peaches with water and add fresh water to a large saucepan, bring to a boil. Once boiling, add the peaches and boil for about 30 seconds.

  • Once the peaches are cool enough to handle, gentle use your fingers to peel away the skin.

Serving and Storing Peach Puree

  • You can serve peach puree however you like. It's great straight-up as a first food for babies or as a topping for yogurt, chia pudding or even oatmeal. It's also great for making a peach bellini.

  • Store peach puree in the fridge for 3-4 days or in the freezer or up to 3 months. I like to freeze the puree in silicone ice cube trays or small freezer-safe jars so I can easily thaw small amounts when I want to use them. This is a great option if you're making the puree for your baby.
  • I recommend thawing frozen peach puree in the fridge the night before you want to use it, but you can also thaw it quickly with a warm water bath.

Notes

  • Frozen peaches: You can definitely use frozen peaches for this puree. Simply let the peaches thaw completely in the fridge, then add to your food processor or blender and puree. If you want the peach puree to be skin-free, you can steam or boil the thawed peach slices first, which will make them easier to peel.
