Prune Puree

If you think of prunes, you probably think of serving them for one reason. (Constipation!) And while they can be helpful for that, they’re also a nice way to turn a shelf stable fruit into homemade baby food by simply blending with water.

This baby food has fiber, iron, and a pleasantly sweet flavor that’s great on it’s own or mixed into a simple baby food combination.

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces pitted dried prunes

Instructions

  • Add the prunes to a bowl and cover with water. Soak for 30 minutes.
  • Add prunes to a blender using a slotted spoon. Blend, adding 1/3-½ cup water to make a smooth puree—or as much as desired to reach the desired consistency. (Adding more water will make a smoother puree, less a thicker one.) Use the stick that came with your blender, or stop and start as needed to help the mixture move around in the blender.
  • Serve or store.

Notes

  • To store in the fridge: Add to small airtight containers and refrigerate for 3-5 days.
  • To freeze: Add to a silicone ice cube tray and freeze overnight. Transfer frozen cubes to a zip top freezer bag and seal, removing as much air as possible. Freeze for up to 6 months.
  • Serve alone or stir into baby oatmeal.
  • Add to a simple smoothie to help with constipation.
  • Spread onto a finger-size stick of toast to serve Baby Led Weaning style.
