Expert Tips
  • Use baby food freezer containers or ice cube trays to store this baby food. That way you can make one large batch that will last you and your baby for several months!
  • Use a good blender, or food processor to easily blend the fruit puree.
  • Use pitted prunes to save yourself time from removing the pits yourself.
  • If you remove the apple skin you will lose some of the fiber, so keep the skins on! They will blend easily once cooked down.
  • Thaw in the fridge the night before use, or thaw by putting the ice cube in a bowl over a bowl of hot water on the counter to defrost.
  • Spice up your baby's food! Add a pinch of cinnamon, nutmeg, or allspice to this recipe!
  • 1 ice cube = 1 oz of food
