Homemade Baby Food ~ Plum and Pineapple Purees

Two more super easy and tasty purees for your little one!!

For the plums, I pitted and diced them, after washing them off and scrubbing the skins gently. Those I pureed fresh / raw (add a little water or juice to thin if needed).

For the pineapple I diced and then steamed for about 10 minutes, and then pureed, adding a little of the cooking water to thin.

With the pineapple, I used about half of it and froze it as just a pineapple puree; the rest I froze still in chunks and added them to other mixtures to create a couple different fruit blends (it goes well with just about anything - apple, mango, banana, watermelon, peach, etc.)

Lindsey didn't particularly like either of these on their own, but they blended well with other mixtures. Pineapple Peach, Plum Peach, Pineapple Plum, etc. Be creative!

Pineapple Puree

1 pineapple, outer skin peeled (make sure all "eyes" are removed), and cored


  1. Dice peeled and cored pineapple into chunks. Place a steamer insert into a large pot of water with about 1" of water in the bottom. Bring water to a boil. Add pineapple (just enough to fill the steamer basket), cover with a lid, and steam for approximately 10 minutes, or until tender.
  2. Add to blender, add enough cooking liquid to thin as necessary and blend until desired consistency is reached.
Plum Puree

5 - 6 ripe plums, gently scrubbed

  1. Cut in half, remove pits. Dice into small chunks and add to blender.
  2. Puree, adding water or juice as needed and blend until desired consistency is reached.
