Tropical Fruit Purée

The other day I lingered a little too long over coffee and a very juicy story with a friend. I needed some baby food fast, so I bought one of those organic packets. Harry was delighted and gobbled it up faster than anything I have cooked for him. Hmm, how convenient. Ever determined to match this packet stuff, I laboured over a hot stove, and three puree’s later, I matched the packet mix perfectly.

I kept some refrigerated to serve over the next few days, and froze some. Harry loves this on its own or mixed with baby porridge. It’s also a great way to help introduce new foods, I added a bit to some puree carrot this afternoon and it went down a treat.

Nutrition Note:  If your baby is experiencing constipation the mangoes and pear in this puree may help to soften their stools and relieve any discomfort.

    My DD loves this! I had a similar moment with the Rafferty’s Garden purees, so I’m glad I am able to replicate. Also tastes great combined with yoghurt (I eat it this way too!)

      Thanks for your comment Rebecca, so good to hear from you. I agree, it is fabulous in yoghurt. I’m so glad mango’s are back in season! Ax

    This looks like a winner to try! Just finished making up a bunch of other purees too. Just a question-or two how do you find it bets to get the seed away form the mango with minimal wastage? and where did you get your ice cube trays? they look perfect for purees.

      Hi Julie, thanks for your comment. I cut the two sides off as close to the seed as possible then slice a checkered pattern in each cheek to remove all the flesh. Then I scrape around the seed carefully with a knife. I usually give the leftover seed to Harry to suck on – he LOVES it 🙂 The trays are “Happy Baby” trays, I purchased them from Big W. There are some great baby trays you can buy, the ones with the lids are best I find because it reduces freezer burn. Once frozen pop them out and put them in a freezer bag for single serves. Hope that helps, Axxx
