*For the carrots - I used about 5 carrots. Cut both ends off of the carrots, and cut into thirds. Put in a pot and cover with water. Cover and bring to a boil on high heat. Boil until you can stick a fork all the way through. Strain and puree the carrots in the food processor. You may need to add some water to get it going.
**For the 3 cups fruit - I used 1 large apple, 1 large peach, 1 banana and 2 plums. I peeled the fruit, but I'm sure you could leave the skin on. Cut into chunks and puree in the food processor.
