Baby Fruit Recipes

We are moving right along with solids at our household. Banana, Avocado, and Sweet Potato were a thumbs up. Green beans are an Eh-I'll-eat-them-but-they-aren't-my-favorite, so today I have two fruit purees for y'all.

Blueberry Puree

Ingredients:
2 cups fresh blueberries, rinsed
Doesn't get much easier than that, right!? 

Cooking Instructions:
- pour blueberries into your baby food maker, food processor, or blender
- hit puree for about 10 seconds or until smooth


- there will be small bits of peel in the puree. to remove simply pour through a fine, mesh strainer, using a rubber spatula to force the puree through.





- you will end up with a thin yogurt-like consistency after straining.


- heat puree in a small sauce pan over medium-low heat until hot, 3-5 minutes.
*this step is optional. heating the sauce breaks down fibers and aids in digestion. after your baby gets used to eating blueberries, you no longer need to heat after straining.*
- let cool and serve.

Storing Options:
3 days in the frig in an air tight container
3 months in the freezer (try splitting it up into single servings by freezing in ice cube trays. then place "ice cubes" in freezer safe plastic bag)


Obviously the bottom two slots are not blueberries (they're pear), so today its a two for one special! Below is how to make Pear Sauce...


Pear Sauce
Ingredients:
1 pear, chopped
1/2 cup water

Cooking Instructions:
- steam chopped pear for 10 minutes
- puree for 10 seconds

Storing Options:
3 days in the frig in an air tight container
3 months in the freezer (try splitting it up into single servings by freezing in ice cube trays. then place "ice cubes" in freezer safe plastic bag)

Did your baby dig the fruit puree? Try Brown Rice Cereal and a Prune Puree too! Like what you're seeing here? Most of the recipes we try can be found in Cooking for Baby or the Beaba Babycook Recipes.
