3 Berry + Apple Baby Food Puree

I’ve done an all berry puree recipe before, and don’t get me wrong, it rocks. The problem is that it can be a little runny for anything but a spoon fed puree.

What I really wanted is a berry puree recipe that I could toss in a reusable pouch to be able to take on the go with us.

Something that would highlight the bountiful berries that we have in the market right now.

Something that would give my little one a ton of energy for all of her swimming, playing and running.

Something that I could take out of the freezer right before we leave for the day and it would be ready when the mid-morning breakdown inevitably happens.

It was easy. All I had to do, was just add an apple.

Which is pretty much the cure for all baby food puree problems.

Too savory? Add an apple.

Too thin? Add an apple.

Making a puree with an unusual vegetable and not sure the little one is going to eat? Add an apple.

Want any baby to gobble up your puree? Add an apple.

Besides being sweet, simple flavored and versatile the apple is full of insoluble and soluble fiber which help maintain regular bowls. The apple also helps maintain a healthy weight, promotes prostate, liver, bone and colon health and counters the effects of oxidative damage.

So go ahead, add an apple or two to any puree.

  • Spoon over greek yogurt with a sprinkle of chopped walnut and bananas for a great toddler breakfast.
  • Mix with chicken and spinach puree for a wholesome baby puree dinner.
