This easy Prune Puree is a yummy baby food that also boasts fiber and iron. Try it as a single ingredient baby food, stirred into oatmeal, or to help relieve baby constipation.
To make this baby food, you just need a bag of basic pitted prunes. You can use regular or organic, depending on what you prefer and can find at your store.
Add the prunes to a bowl and cover with water. Soak for 30 minutes. (You could use prunes with pits, just remove the pits before you start the process!)
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. – 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.
In the fridge: Add to airtight containers and refrigerate for 3-5 days. To freeze: Add to an ice cube tray and freeze. Transfer frozen cubes to a freezer bag. Freeze for up to 6 months.
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.
