  • 2 eating apples (about 200g), peeled, cored and cut into chunks
  • 1 beetroot (about 150g), peeled and cut into chunks
  • baby's milk


  1. Put the beetroot into a steamer over simmering water and cook for around 15 mins, add the apple and cook for a further 8 mins until both are tender.

  2. Blitz to a purée in a food processor. Add a splash of milk (or water from the saucepan), if necessary, to create a smooth texture. You may need to scrape the sides of the bowl a few times while blitzing to get a smooth consistency throughout.

  3. Serve one portion and divide the rest between small containers or ice cube trays and freeze.
