  • 1 pound Carrots
  • 2 3/4 cups Water divided


  • Wash and peel your carrots, then slice into thin 1/4 in. pieces.
  • Place the carrots pieces in your Instant Pot and pour 1 1/2 cup water over the carrots.
  • Place the lid on your Instant Pot, and select Steam, High Pressure, and change cook time to 5 minutes.
  • Preheating will begin 10 seconds after settings are selected.
  • Once the carrots are done, do a quick release. {I like to do a gradual quick release to avoid any messy splatters... basically a quick release of steam, in a few gradual nudges}.
  • Remove softened Carrots from Instant Pot and add to Blender or Food Processor.
  • Pour 1 1/4 cup water over the carrots and blend or pulse {stirring as necessary}, until you reach a desired consistency.
  • Transfer Carrot Puree to OXO Tot baby Blocks, pop on lids, and store in Refrigerator or Freezer.
  • Pull out one at a time, and allow to come to room temperature prior to feeding baby.


It will take around 8 minutes for your Instant Pot to initially reach pressure before cooking begins.
In the fridge, store up to 3 days.
In the freezer, store up to 3 months.
