1 Banana is ok for this Banana puree.
A Blender or Food Processor
It is important that the banana blends smoothly. If you have a kitchen tool that can pound it smoothly that would also work.
Breast milk can also serve the same purpose.
How To Make Banana Puree
Start your preparation by washing your banana. You can take one stick of banana and wash it, then peel off the skin. After you are done with that you can cut it into bits and put in your blender. If what you have is a food processor you can use that too.
Blender your banana until it is smooth and looks like a paste. Then you bring it out and pour into your plate. Once this is done you should mix your baby formula in water and then add it to the Banana paste. If what you have is breast milk you can take little of that and add it.
Stir your milk and the banana until it is properly mixed. Once this is done your banana puree is ready and you can serve it to your baby. When I made this recipe, I made sure to use hot water in mixing my formula in order to make my puree warm. Since the banana is not cooked I wanted to make sure my baby got a warm meal.
Banana puree is a very easy recipe to make and it doesn’t require you cooking anything in the stove so you should try it today for your baby and you will be grateful you did.
