Fresh papaya is a perfect tropical fruit to add to your baby’s diet. Papaya’s are deliciously sweet, versatile, and rich in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.
For older babies, papaya also makes a good finger food. However, for puree, I like to steam my papaya first (in my Beaba Babycook Pro), just to soften the fruit up a bit. Steaming the papaya first also makes digestion easier for baby. What I love about the Beaba Babycook Pro is that I can steam and puree all in the same unit. It is so easy to do!
Combinations To Try With Papaya:
- 1 fully ripened papaya
- Peel and de-seed papaya.
- Dice the papaya into chunks and add to the Babycook steaming basket.
- Fill water to level 1. Steam papaya in the Babycook. Reserve the cooking liquid just in case you want a different consistency when blending.
- Puree, in the Babycook, to the desired consistency. Add reserved cooking liquid, if necessary.
- Freeze, or store in the refrigerator, in Multiportions container.
