Raspberry Puree

Loaded with fresh flavor, vitamins, and the prettiest color, raspberries are easy to turn into baby food. You can use this simple method to puree them for newer eaters—or keep making it to add flavor to other foods like yogurt.

The method for this is super simple, but it does rely entirely on the flavor of the berries. Be sure to taste one before you make the puree to make sure it has a pleasant flavor and isn’t too tart. (See tips at the bottom if your berries are tart!)

Ingredients You Need

You just need raspberries for this recipe. I use fresh, but you could also use frozen if you let them thaw first.

Step-by-Step Instructions

Here’s a look at how to make this baby food. Scroll down to the bottom of the post for the specifics.

  1. Start with berries that have a pleasant and not too tart taste.
  2. Rinse.
  3. Add to a blender.
  4. Blend until smooth.

TIP: If you want to remove the seeds, which are hard to blend entirely smooth, you can strain the puree to remove them.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can babies have pureed raspberries?

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends introducing berries like strawberries and raspberries after some other solids have been introduced. If you have any concerns, you can check with your pediatrician.

How do you get the seeds out of raspberry puree?

The easiest way is to set a fine mesh strainer over a bowl and pour the puree through the strainer. Press with a spoon as needed to release all of the puree through the mesh. This will remove the seeds.

What’s the best way to store this?

You can store it in small airtight storage jars (like the ones shown here from Wee Sprout) in the fridge for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
