Recipes... prunes with panache...



Preparation time: 10 minutes
Serves: 6


Prune puree is perfect for toddlers (and adults). Mix through yoghurt for a healthy desert or add to other puree combinations for natural sweetness and increasing the fibre of your child’s diet. Prune puree can also be used as a jam on toast or as a sugar replacement in baking.

1 cup (200g) Australian prunes, pitted
1/4 cup water (amended from original recipe which was 2cups of water)*
Serve with regular fat natural yoghurt (optional)


Put prunes and water into a saucepan and bring to a boil then simmer for 5 mins. Blitz prunes and the cooking water together in a blender or food processer until smooth.

Makes 1 cup.

*We found the original recipe which stated 2cups of water gave a puree that was very runny so we've reduced the amount of water to 1/4 of a cup.

Serve with yoghurt (optional)
