Helpful Tips
Babies tend to eat smaller quantities of dessert so it is best to open freeze purée in a sterilized ice cube tray. Transfer the cubes to a plastic bag once frozen.

VARIATIONS:
Peach and Melon Blush
To make 3/4 cup, take 1 ripe peach and 1/4 ripe melon. Peel and halve the peach, discard the stone and cut up the fruit. Scoop the seeds out of the melon and cut away the skin. Roughly chop the melon into pieces. Purée or sieve the fruit until completely smooth. Spoon a little into a bowl and serve.
