Kiwi Puree

I love blending up fresh fruit into homemade baby food purees and this one is a great option to introduce kiwi to babies. We love this as is, or mixed with Mango Puree or Banana Puree.

How to Buy Kiwi

You’ll want to choose kiwi that’s slightly soft to the touch, but isn’t too squishy. That should have the best flavor and texture for making this recipe.

Step-by-Step Instructions

Here’s a look at this super simple baby food recipe. Scroll down for the full recipe.

  1. Peel the brown skin from the kiwi and discard..
  2. Add the fruit to a blender.
  3. Blend until very smooth, adding a little liquid if needed.
  4. Serve or store in the fridge or freezer for later.

TIP: If the fruit has a hard time blending smooth, you can double the amount to make it easier for the blender to work.

How to Freeze Kiwi Puree

To freeze, portion puree into an ice cube tray and freeze for 4-6 hours or until frozen. Transfer to a freezer storage bag for up to 3 months. To thaw from frozen, place a cube into an airtight container and allow to thaw overnight in the fridge. Freezing some of your batch is a great way to keep it fresh and have easy meals or meal components ready and waiting.

My Kiwi Puree is tart—what should I do?

Depending on the flavor of the fresh fruit, it may taste a little tart when pureed. If tastes too tart to you, you can mix it with plain whole milk yogurt, applesauce, Banana Puree, or Avocado Puree to mellow the flavor.

Stage 2 Baby Food Recipe

Kiwi can be a little acidic, so offer this to a baby once they’ve eaten other solids around 7 or 8 months. Sometimes acidic foods can cause a minor skin reaction in babies.

Tips for Making the Best Kiwi Puree
