Homemade Plum Baby Puree Recipe for reusable food pouches by Little Mashies
Why is plum a great baby food choice for reusable food pouches?
Rich in fiber, Vitamin A and Vitamin C, plums are an interesting fruit to give to your baby in their first year. The high level of fiber helps in maintaining bowel regularity and constipation but plums should be really well cooked in the beginning months of introducing solids to your baby. If you make and freeze a lot of plum puree you can use it to sweeten other vegetables and meals that need a bit of flavour. Your frozen plum puree will never go to waste. Even now when Ariella is almost 5 we use frozen plum puree in smoothies and with frozen banana to make our own ice-cream!
2 cups fresh plums, diced and seeded
Step 1: Cut plums into small pieces.
Step 2: Steam the diced plums in a stovetop steamer or a Beaba Baby Cook system.
Step 3: Puree the plums in a food processor or blender. You will not need to add any liquid. To get a thicker and creamier consistency you could mix it with a little avocado if your baby has tried avocado before.
Step 4: If preparing your baby food recipe in bulk freeze the puree into ice-cube trays or spoon it straight into Little Mashies reusable food pouches and then store them in the fridge or freezer. For instructions on how to fill a refillable pouch you can read our blog. For info on how long to freeze specific baby foods for we have the information here.
Step 5: Label and date your homemade pouches so that you know when to use the puree by. There is a space on the back of the Little Mashies yoghurt and baby food pouches so that you can write all the details.
Step 6: To clean your reusable food pouches you can check out our Little Mashies video here. Little Mashies are see through when held towards light, so it is very easy to see that all of the food is washed out. Because of the specifically designed curved shape, all of the food washes straight out when held upside down under a tap. Little Mashies can also be used in the dishwasher and steam sterilisers, and are BPA free, Phthalate Free, and PVC free.

Amazing! Saves so much time when doing anything. Takes hardly anytime too fill them pop them in the fridge and go. I have two young girls who demand food for the moment they wake up so these are perfect for that demanding 6:30am craziness:)
Absolutely Thrilled With My Purchase
POSTED BY KIRRA
Absolutely thrilled with my purchase, not only do they look great but they are easy to wash, clean and fill. Def worth the money, we've only used it for custard and yoghurt so far but much cheaper than buying the squeezie yoghurts from the supermarket and we aren't contributing to landfill everyday.
