Mashed Mango Puree Recipe
Steaming mangoes isn’t necessary once baby is 8 months old.
- Wash 3 mangoes.
- Cut a thin slice off of both ends.
- Lay one mango facing up on a cutting board.
- Gently carve off the skin using a sharp knife in a sawing motion.
- Using the knife, feel for the pit that is located in the middle of the mango.
- Cut along the side of the pit, making sure not to cut through the pit.
- Do the same for the other side of the mango.
- Discard the part of the mango with the pit inside.
- Cut each half vertically into 1/2″ slices, not cutting all the way through.
- Than cut each half horizontally into 1/2″ slices, not cutting all the way through. This creates cubes as displayed in the photo.
- Bend each mango half and remove the “meat” of the fruit and place into a large mixing bowl.
- Repeat steps 2 – 11 for the other two mangoes.
- Add 4 ounces of bottled water and 2 scoops of formula OR 4 ounces of breast milk to the mixing bowl.
- Mash the mango cubes using a potato masher and stir with a spoon until you have reached the desired consistency.
- Add more water or breast milk if the puree is too thick.
- Using a small spoon, put puree into ice cube trays.
