  • 6 ripe bananas (with some small brown spots)
  • 1 Large Banana = 4 oz puree
  • Cooking Directions

    Peel the banana, break it in half and place in a bowl.

    Mash with the back of a fork or spoon until smooth and serve. Add

    breast milk or formula, if needed, to thin puree.

    Banana puree can be stored in your Sage Spoonfuls jars for 1 day in

    the refrigerator and up to 3 months in the freezer. Some discoloration

    during storage can be expected.


    Banana puree tastes great at room temperature, warm, or cool.

    For a creamier consistency with added nutrition, mix puree with a little

    breast milk or formula and a baby cereal (rice or oatmeal) and serve

    warm. For extra flavor, add a pinch of cinnamon.

    This recipe was styled by chef Karen Pickus for Good Morning America.
