nutribullet | March 7, 2023

Caring for an infant is a full-time job. When it comes to introducing solid foods, that job can get even more demanding – adding prepping, cooking, and cleanup to the mix. While you know your baby deserves the absolute best, making all your little one’s food from scratch can feel daunting. That’s where the nutribullet® Baby Steam + Blend comes in. This unique all-in-one steamer and blender lets you cook and blend fresh, wholesome ingredients for your baby in one place – condensing the pot, steaming basket, and blender components down into one easy-to-use machine.  

With timed water levels and automatic steaming and blending programs, the nutribullet® Baby Steam + Blend handles the “tending” side of the cooking for you. 

Below is a step-by-step guide on how to use the nutribullet® Baby Steam + Blend: 

  1. Prepare your ingredients by cleaning produce well and chopping it into 1/2-inch (1-2cm) cubes. 
  2. Add ingredients to the Work Bowl and seal the lid.
  3. Add water to the Water Reservoir at the instructed level on the unit
  4. Set the dial to the appropriate setting: Steam (steams food), Blend (blends hot, steamed ingredients or other soft and cooked foods, like pears), Pulse (allows you to blend ingredients in short bursts to create a coarser texture), or Auto (automatically steams, then blends food in one continuous process). *Note that when using the Steam or Auto programs, you’ll want to allow the unit to cool for at least 10 minutes before opening the lid.

Now that you know how to use your nutribullet® Baby Steam + Blend, take it for a spin with the following recipes: 

Sweet Potato Puree: With its sweet and mild flavor and rich nutritional profile, sweet potato is a great food to start your little eater on. 

Butternut Squash and Red Lentil Soup: Let’s get the hearty started! This puree is packed with plant-based protein and fiber, making it a great meal for babies. 

Beef, Potato & Spinach: It’s a Sunday roast in puree form – a grown-up meal for babies!
