So now I'm going to over the steps of making kiwi purée. This is another one of my no-cook, easy prep favorites. A little more so than a banana but when you have a ripe kiwi there's not much involved. So the first step is peeling it. There - you know, furry skin is definitely not something that's palatable for young babies, so you want to make sure and get rid of that.

A lot of people will ask about the seeds. The seeds are actually very nutrient dense, so it really comes down to a preference on texture for your individual child. So if you notice that they're - they don't seem to like kiwi, you can always try keeping the seeds out and giving them the purée without it to see if that might be the culprit.

Kiwis do not need to be cooked, so you just cut them raw. I prefer to get them in chunks so they're easier to turn in your blender. Once we have them cut, put them in a bowl. We have a total of three kiwis here, which is a great portion size.

Kiwis are amazing to keep both in the fridge or the freezer. So you would just want to add them in to your high speed blender or food processor. And we're going to turn it on and let it run for about twenty to thirty seconds until we reach a nice thin purée.

So once it's turned about twenty or thirty seconds you're good to go. Sometimes chunks will collect on the side so you may have to scrape it down and reblend a few times, but for the most part kiwi when it's nice and ripe will come out to a nice thin purée straight away. So, you just want to portion a size out to serve your baby. So then you're good to go with your kiwi baby food purée.
