Grown Up Peach Puree

Grown Up Peach Puree

They're great because they can be free of additives, be pure food, and since they are pureed, they are easy on a sensitive digestive system while still containing those coveted enzymes we look for in fresh raw fruits and vegetables.  Well, baby food can get old real fast, so I played with a variety of flavors to "grow them up" a little bit.

This grown up peach puree is a favorite of mine as it's cool and refreshing, and with a hit of ginger is calming to the belly.  The tastes are more mature and you don't feel like an overgrown baby eating it....I promise.
