A delicious and healthy combination of pumpkin, apples and fresh cashew milk made with the NutraMilk along with spices of your choice. A good option for a fall and holiday puree for your little one.

Homemade baby food is the way to go for several reasons. Check out the following post for more details: Transitioning to Solid Foods.


A glass bottle of homemade plant based milk
  • 1 ½ cups pumpkin puree or 1 (15 oz can organic pumpkin puree)
  • 3 medium apples peeled cored & chopped (about 3 cups)
  • 1 cashew milk made with the NutraMilk

Cook Pumpkin:
  • Cook pumpkins as below or check out this recipe for homemade pumpkin puree.
  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  • Remove the stem from the pumpkin, cut it in half and remove the seeds.
  • Place both halves of the pumpkin flesh side down on a baking dish.
  • Pour water in the bottom of the dish until it fills the dish about ¼” high.
  • Cover pan/pumpkins with foil and bake for 45-60 minutes or until the pumpkins are soft to the touch (the skin depresses when pushed).
  • Set pumpkin halves flesh-side up to cool.
  • Once cool, remove pumpkin flesh from the skin and measure out 1 ½ cups.

Cook apples:
  • Place peeled & chopped apples and 1 cup of water in a saucepan over medium heat.
  • Cover and cook, stirring occasionally until the apples are soft (about 10-12 minutes).
  • Remove from heat and let the water and apples cool (do not discard water, reserve it to use in the baby food).
  • You can also bake apples with pumpkin. Simply put raw apples on baking sheet and cook about 45 minutes or till tender.
Make the puree: 
  • Add all ingredients to the NutraMilk and process until smooth. Use more cashew milk depending on desired consistency. For younger babies (4-7 months) need thinner purees, while older babies (8+ months) can handle a little bit of texture)!
  • Freeze in 1-2 TBS portions using an ice cube tray or silicone mold.
  • Once frozen, remove cubes from tray/mold and transfer to an airtight container and store in the freezer.
