Get the recipe: Pumpkin, Yogurt + Prune Baby Food Puree

5 stars (4 ratings)
A fun seasonal baby food puree that takes only 15 minutes to make and is packed with vitamin A, beta carotene, potassium, protein and iron just from the pumpkin.

Ingredients 

  • 1/2 small pie pumpkin (roughly 3 cups) peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1/2 cup full-fat plain Greek yogurt
  • 3 prunes, dried

Instructions 

  • Bring 2 inches of water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Place pumpkin into a steamer basket over boiling water, cover, and cook for 10-15 minutes, or when you can easily prick the pumpkin chunks with a fork. Let cool slightly. Reserve steamer water.
  • Meanwhile, place the prunes into a small bowl and cover with very hot water for 10 minutes. This will let them plump up and become tender.
  • Place the pumpkin, yogurt and prunes into blender or food processor and puree for 1-2 minutes until smooth, adding reserved steamer water in 1/4 cup increments if needed.

Time-Saving Tip: during the fall seasons you can usually find peeled and chopped pumpkin in the produce refrigeration section of some grocery stores. I have also seen frozen pumpkin chunks recently. 
Storage: Fridge – store in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days. Freezer – can be frozen for up to 4 months (this and this are my favorite freezer storage containers).
