Baby Brezza Glass: Homemade Purées in 15 Minutes Flat

Image placeholder title

I never even tried making my own baby food.

I thought I would. I said I would. And then, once my babies were born, I just didn’t. Both times.

I had too much to do. Too little time. And too many dirty dishes, pots, and pans that already needed cleaning. Did I actually need to make even more mess for myself? No. Instead, I relied on pouches and jars to nourish my purée-eating nuggets. I felt like a bit of a fail (there I with the mom-guilt again!), but I gave my kids the best organic brands, and felt (quasi) confident that they would never know (or taste) the difference.

My 16 month old is now eating all sorts of solids, but just recently stopped eating her veggies. She used to chow down on boiled broccoli and sautéed spinach and green beans and squash. But now suddenly started vetoing any vegetable I put on her tray. So I decided to reintroduce fruit-and-vegetable pouches for extra vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants. And, what do you know? She turned her cute little button nose up in the air.

So when a friend recommended the Baby Brezza Glass, I decided to give it a go. If fresh purées would get my little one to consume her greens again, then I'd sacrifice the time and make an effort.

I wanted to make an apple and carrot blend first. I peeled and chopped (something I have to do any time I make veggies) and threw the pieces in the glass container (it minimizes food’s contact with plastic—something that's important to me). I added fresh water to a separate compartment, and selected 15 minutes to steam and blend (you can also choose to just steam or just blend). And then I waited and watched.

Fifteen minutes later, I had an aromatic, perfectly bright orange blend that tasted way, way, way better than I could have imagined. And, what do you know? Baby girl agreed! One button and one container to clean. This was literally the easiest “homemade meal” ever.
