When to Introduce: 4+ months (always check with your pediatrician)
5 pitted prunes
a dash of cardamom
Directions: Place the prunes in a small bowl and cover with warm water to soften for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, peel, core, and slice 2 apples into even-sized pieces. We like changing up the variety, but currently Pink Ladies are a favorite. Place the apples in a small pot on the stove, with 2 tablespoons of water. Cover and cook at low heat for 5-10 minutes until the apples are soft. Remove from the stovetop and cool. Transfer apples to a food processor, add the prunes (save the water!), and process until smooth. Prunes can be a little thick, but add some of the water reserved from the soaking to thin out your puree. Add a dash of cardamom. Taste and serve to a happy baby!
Blending Suggestions: This puree freezes well and can also be blended with oats, quinoa, or millet for a little one who’e ready for some texture. You can also blend with yogurt for a tasty morning treat!
Servings: 12 ounces (2-3 pouches)
Stars: Prunes are a great source of fiber and also contain a significant amount of other vitamins such as vitamin A, potassium, and iron. Not only are they a nutrient rich fruit, they are sweet and tasty as well! Plus, they’re great for relieving baby’s constipation.
