How to make banana puree for babies, the easiest homemade baby food you will ever make!

Bananas are one of the best foods to use when making homemade baby food.

They are nutritious, cheap to buy, require almost no preparation, and because they are naturally sweet, babies love them.

Banana puree was the first fruit we gave to Raleigh when we moved on from pureed vegetables. He loved it then, and continues to love bananas even now.

How to Make Banana Puree

Step 1: Peel bananas and cut or break them into chunks.

Put the pieces of banana into a food processor or blender.

2. Puree banana chunks in a food processor or blender until smooth.

If you are making purees for an older baby that can handle some texture in their purees, bananas can be mashed with a fork. They will get fairly smooth, but will still have some lumps in the puree.

If you want your puree to be completely smooth, a quick blend in the food processor or blender does the trick.

Bananas have so much water in them, so the puree does not require any additional liquid such as water, breastmilk or formula.

    • Hi Paola! I thaw them, and then heat them up. You can thaw them in the fridge first so that they’re soft when you’re ready to use them, and then just need to be heated up, or you can thaw them on the counter for awhile at room temp too!

    • Hi Megan! Yes, they will get brown, but it’s just them being exposed to air. Totally still great for baby to eat despite the weird appearance haha! Let me know if you try them and how your kiddo likes them!
