Pumpkin Pear Applesauce

I’ve been horrible about fulfilling my promise to post baby food recipes! I’ve been cooking things for Maddie since we started solids at 6 months old. Now at almost 1 year old, I’ve been surprised at how much she still enjoys purees. Lunch and dinners usually involve yogurt and some sort of puree because it’s never a guarantee if she will eat whatever solid foods I’ve prepared. So even at 11 months, we are still big on purees in this house!
I was contacted by my new friends from the Baby Brezza One Step Baby Food Maker and Little Green Pouch to try out their products and figured with all the purees I was still busting out, I needed to give them a try! Maddie loves pouches. She’ll eat pretty much any baby food I give her when it’s in a pouch. Little Green Pouches are BPA-free, reusable, freezable, squeezable and dishwasher-safe pouches to portion and store homemade baby food. We love having pouches for meals or snacks on-the-go! Truthfully, I didn’t really think I wanted a baby food maker, but I have to admit, it is really convenient to be able to steam and blend foods in one machine. It makes clean up so much simpler! Some of the features I like about the Baby Brezza One Step Baby Food Maker is that you can set the steamer for different times, 10 minutes, 15 minutes, etc.. and you can even set it to automatically blend when it’s done. When you’ve got a baby to chase after, it’s easy to forget about something you are cooking so to know it’s on a timer and will blend automatically means I don’t have to worry about overcooking the food. That is also worth some peace of mind!
Ok, so what did I make? I thought a fall treat was in order so I made some Pumpkin Pear Applesauce. Maddie loves apples and pears so I’ve been giving her this applesauce for dessert or as a snack during the day. The other great thing about this recipe is that applesauce is not just a treat for babies, but adults like it too! I am definitely guilty of eating this applesauce with her! It’s so yummy and perfectly sweet. Not to mention, this all-natural fall treat is packed with fiber and vitamins!
