Pure Spoon For Perfect Carrot Cake Muffins

1 Flares 1 Flares ×

pure muffin 2 I’m here to tell you about Pure Spoon, a line of organic purees for kids!  Normally I don’t cover food for kids, but this seemed way too perfect to pass up.  My niece and nephew are nearly 2 and 4.   Sometimes I spoil them with toys, but I know that their parents and I both prefer it when I give them  the really good stuff AKA Pure Spoon.

This is a puree that comes in 11 different flavors.  I picked the most basic to dazzle you with an amazing carrot cake muffin recipe.  Tasting the batter, and we were convinced we wouldn’t find a better flavor at the fanciest bakery.  This is probably because of the way Pure Spoon is made. They use HPP or high-pressure pasteurization which is a technique using cool temperatures.  Essentially, the cool factor allows for higher levels of flavor and nutrients to remain after pasteurizing.  

Pure Spoon isn’t something that you might accidentally taste and want to spit out.  The myth that pureed food for kids is all a bit weird tasting is a thing of the past.  Made with organic fruits and vegetables and nothing artificial means you don’t need to stress about what your kids are eating.  From Simply Carrot (in my recipe below) to Creamy Avocado & Pears to Apples & Broccoli, there is a flavor that your kids will love.  Each container is 4.2 ounces which can be found at stores like Whole Foods or Target and online with front door delivery.
