How Can You Make Strawberry Puree Easily?
Prepare tiny pieces of ripe but soft strawberry puree for a child to try as they are ready for finger foods. If your baby also prefers spoon-fed food, a recipe for strawberry puree can be easily made with fresh or frozen strawberries.
Strawberry Baby Food: How to Make It
- Strawberries should be cleaned
Fill a sink or a bowl with a solution of three parts water but one part white vinegar to kill bacteria. Strawberries should be washed in this mix and then rinsed under cool running water before drying.
- Strawberries, sliced
Remove the hulls from the berries and cut each one into pieces.
Suppose your strawberries aren’t quite ripe (or are frozen); steam berries for about three minutes in even a steamer. Then, to end the food preparation, rinse the strawberries with ice water.
- Mash or puree
Now it’s time to puree the strawberries. In a blender, food processor, or baby food maker, combine all of the ingredients until smooth. If the mixture is too thick, add some water. Alternatively, if your child is about ten months old and prefers chunkier baby formula, mash the strawberries with either a fork or potato masher and serve.
Is it possible to freeze strawberry puree?
Strawberry puree can be frozen for up to three months. Consider purchasing strawberries at a discount and freezing a large batch of puree for later use. Place the puree in tiny, BPA-free cups (or reusable pouches), and afterward, thaw one put in the fridge when you’re able to use it.
You should introduce another of nature’s most delightful treats—the strawberry puree —when your baby is also about eight months old. The bright red color and sweet taste appeal to infants. As a mom, you’ll be glad to feed baby strawberries because they’re rich in fiber and antioxidants, as well as vitamin C.
