Instant Pot Banana Pear Baby Food Recipe
Earlier this month we started introducing solids to Little Miss’s diet…if you can call a baby puree a solid…
But once we got a hang on this whole “chew” and then swallow thing (and weren’t worried about putting her off from veggies) we went over to the fun sweets like this banana + pear baby puree.
Cooking this recipe in our Instant Pot was stupid simple.
I was able to make a batch big enough for a couple of weeks in under 30 minutes level of simple.
Once everything was done cooking I simply portioned it out into smaller containers and popped them in the freezer for later.
When it comes to freezing baby food, I personally love using little containers with lids because it prevents the food from getting freezer burned.
That said, there is absolutely nothing wrong with making this Instant Pot baby puree in a bulk batch and pouring it into an ice tray to freeze.
However you do make this Instant Pot banana pear baby food, it’s ridiculously easy.
