Pour water into a pot until it is about 2 inches deep and bring to a boil over high heat. Place the carrots into a steamer basket and place the basket into the pot. The water should not touch the bottom of the basket. Cover and steam for about 7 minutes, until the carrots are easily pierced with a fork.
While the carrots are cooking, cut the avocado in half lengthwise around the pit. Using a spoon, scoop the avocado out and place into your Sage Baby Puree & Blend food processor. Store the avocado half with the pit in an airtight container in the refrigerator for later use. It will stay fresh for about 2 days
Place the carrots into your Sage Baby Puree & Blend food processor with the avocado and pulse until smooth. Add a little breast milk, formula or water while blending the carrots to help achieve a smooth consistency.
- When stored in Sage Spoonfuls jars or Sage Squeezies, this puree will stay fresh for 1-2 days in the refrigerator and up to 3 months in the freezer. Some discoloration can be expected.
