Apple Kale Puree

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time:
 10 minutes
Servings: 18 ounces
Age: 7+ months 


  • 4 apples, peeled, cored and roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup kale, roughly chopped


  1. Cook: In a medium saucepan over medium heat, bring 2 inches of water to a boil. Place the chopped apples into a steamer basket over the boiling water, cover and steam for 8-9 minutes or until tender when pricked with a fork. Place the kale over the apples, cover and steam for an additional 1-2 minutes or until the kale is just wilted. Let cool slightly. Reserve steamer water.
  2. Blend: Place all of the ingredients into a blender or food processor and puree for 1-2 minutes or until completely smooth. If your puree is too thick, add in the reserved steamer water, fresh breast milk, fresh formula or water into the blender in 1/4 cup increments until you achieve your desired texture. I had to use 1/2 cup of reserved steamer water for the puree featured above, but amounts of added liquid will vary with each batch.
  3. Serve to your baby or freeze for another meal.
