Papaya Banana Puree: Homemade baby food recipes from Baby Love

Serving Size:

Makes 38 – 44 ounces.

Ingredients:

  • 2 meridol papayas

    (about 4 to 4 1/2 pounds total)
  • 8 ounces water
  • 3 bananas peeled and each cut into 3 pieces

Method:

Slice each papaya in half lengthwise.

Remove the dark seeds with a spoon.

Cut each half into quarters lengthwise (you’ll have 16 pieces total).

Lay each piece on a cutting board with fruit side up and peel down.

Carefully, carve off the good pink fruit from the skin like you would a watermelon. Dice each strip into 4 pieces.

Put the papaya and water in a 4-quart pot.

Turn the burner on high and cover with a lid.

Cook for approximately 4 minutes, stirring once.

Add the bananas and stir while cooking for an additional 1 minute.

Pour everything into the blender. Puree until smooth. It will become “silky smooth.”

Pour into two ice cube trays and allow to cool.

Wrap and freeze.
