Plum & Banana Puree


There are THE most beautiful Santa Rosa plums at our local Farmer's Market right now. I have to say that of all the fruits I love, when stone fruit is in season I could not be more excited. The dark purple hue of the plums is so beautiful and the meat is sweet and when pureed, perfect for a baby. I like adding banana to this recipe because it thickens the puree, adds extra nutrients such as potassium and makes a sweet food that babies adore.

You could easily peel the skin off of ripe plums and skip the step of pushing it through a sieve, but just in case your plums aren't super soft, my directions call for simply cutting up the fruit, tossing it in the food processor and whizzing it up.

No matter how you make it, I guarantee your baby will love it!

    As far as I know, you are supposed to wait until your baby is 8 months old before giving them any raw fruit. It is much easier for their little tummies to digest cooked fruit and less likely to cause indigestion.

    [...] This recipe is so simple to make and it only takes a few minutes! I made it using a nutribullet but i’m sure you can use a blender or a food processor to make this puree. This puree wasn’t Cas’s favorite but it tasted delicious to me. (Plum banana link) [...]

    I also just made this for my baby and he loved it. I made him plums before and he ate them but scrunched up his nose a bit and didn't love it. I think it was a little sour. But this was perfect for him. So happy that he will eat plums now! I had to steam my plums for a minute first because they weren't quite soft enough to puree well but it turned out great. And @Mama Bean - although this is 2 years later, babies can have avocado and banana raw. And fruits like mango, peach, pear, and plum IF they are ripe enough and soft enough to mash. If not then just cook a little :)
