  • 1 ripe banana (about 1 cup sliced)
  • Cinnamon, optional


  • Slice banana to measure out about 1 cup.
  • Add to a blender. Blend until very smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides as needed.
  • Add a tiny pinch of cinnamon if desired.
  • Serve immediately.


  • To store, place into small airtight storage containers and store in the fridge.
  • To freeze, place into an ice cube tray, freeze, then transfer frozen cubes to a freezer bag and freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in an airtight container in the fridge.
  • To make a thicker banana puree, you can simply mash a ripe banana until mostly smooth using a fork or potato masher.
  • Add a sprinkle of cinnamon for additional flavor.
  • To help prevent the puree from browning, you can add a few drops of an acid such as fresh lemon or orange juice.
  • Mix with whole milk plain yogurt, baby oatmeal, mashed avocado, sweet potato, or any other baby food you like as desired.
