Ingredients

  • 2 bags organic frozen peas usually about 2 lbs
  • 8 oz water

Instructions

  • Steam your peas for 3-5 minutes
  • Once the peas are green and soft, pour them into a blender and add 8oz water. Puree until smooth.
  • Pour into ice cube trays, allow to cool, wrap/cover, and freeze.
  • Thaw in the fridge the night before use, or thaw by putting the ice cube in a bowl over a bowl of hot water on the counter to defrost.

Notes

Mix with your baby's favorite fruit or some sweeter veggies (butternut squash works great) to make peas more palatable!
1 ice cube = 1 oz of food
