Orange, peach, mango, and carrot puree

Remember that flavor of orange, peach, mango juice? Maybe it still exists, but I stopped drinking my calories long ago. HOWEVER, I remembered it being so good that I thought, why not try it as a puree with some carrots thrown in for good measure? This puree is vitamin-c-tastic and tasted great as a puree or a frozen pop.

If you're leaving this one as a puree, I recommend eating it within 3 days, as it seemed to go bad fairly fast. But this puree tastes great as a frozen treat, or you can freeze the puree and defrost small batches to maintain freshness.

Orange, Peach, Mango, and Carrot puree

1 orange, squeezed
1 cup mango, fresh or frozen
2 large peaches or 1 cup frozen
3 medium carrots, peeled and chopped into 1/2-inch pieces

Bring a few inches of water to a boil and steam carrots in a steamer basket for 15 minutes, until they are very tender. While steaming the carrots, peel and chop the mango and peaches, or, if using frozen fruit, throw it into the steamer with the carrots for 3 minutes after carrots are done. No need to steam the fresh fruit. Juice the orange. Whizz everything in the blender until you reach your desired consistency. This puree is also delicious with 1 Tbsp of melted coconut oil thrown in for a bit of extra fat.
