Our Family's Favorite Pumpkin Puree 

Making your own homemade purees for your toddler is the cheapest and most environmentally friendly alternative to buying single-use squeeze pouches. 

Pumpkins are low in fat and high in fiber, which is why we mix in our own fats such as coconut milk, coconut oil, or olive oil. Pumpkins are also a great source of potassium, protein, and iron. 

Our son's favorite recipe only contains three simple ingredients, however you can always substitute your toddler's favorite vegetables or even add some leftover chicken. 

Key Ingredients:

  • 1 small cooking pumpkin 
  • 1 cup of coconut milk 
  • Dash of cinnamon for taste


Cut the pumpkin in half and bake it at 375° for about 45 minutes. Let the pumpkin cool and remove all of the seeds. Gently scoop out the insides of the pumpkin and pour into a blender. Add the coconut milk and cinnamon and blend until your toddler's desired consistency. 


We designed a refillable squeeze pouch to give you an easy-to-clean product that allows you to make your own purees, smoothies, and soups for your toddler. 
We rely upon pre-orders from Kickstarter to bring this product to life and make it right here in the USA. If you pre-order on Kickstarter, you’ll receive the cup in October.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Pumpkin seeds are tasty and packed full of nutrients, however we do not recommend feeding them to your toddler just yet! Save the seeds and bake them to make a quick snack for mom and dad. 
  • The best pumpkins for cooking are the ones on the smaller side, they are usually called "sugar pumpkins" or "pie pumpkins". 
  • You can cut the pumpkin into cubes and either boil them or steam them. However, baking the pumpkin is the best way to keep all of the nutrients.
