Blackberry Apple Puree

Blackberries pack an impressive nutritional punch, with many health benefits. They are high in antioxidants and provide anti-inflammatory benefits. Full of fiber, they can aid in the digestive process and help improve gut health. Less commonly known benefits, blackberries are a wonderful source of Vitamin C and Vitamin K, benefiting both the immune system and promoting bone health.  

"An apple a day keeps the Dr. away." We've all heard it, but what makes apples so great? Loaded with Vitamin C, Soluble Fiber, and Flavanoid, eating apples can benefit and support processes throughout the body. They may not actually keep you from visiting the Dr., but you can't ignore the nutritional benefits. Their natural sweetness makes a great addition to many baby food purees. This puree is suitable for ages 6mo+.  


Blackberry and Apple Baby Food Puree

This Blackberry and Apple baby food is so quick and easy to make and you can store the finished puree in the fridge for 48 hours or in your freezer for up to 3 months. Simply peel and chop the apples, before adding to a saucepan with the fresh blackberries. Once combined, cover with a lid and allow to cook for about 30 minutes or until the apples have softened. After they have softened, mash the fruit together and continue to cook, uncovered for 15 more minutes. And that is it! Allow the puree to cool completely before putting it into Foodii pouches and storing it. If you prefer a more smooth puree you can blend in a food processor or blender before storage. Add a little bit of breastmilk or formula to thin if needed.
