Steamed Pear Puree Recipe

I prefer to steam pears because it breaks down the sugars and fibers, making it even easier to digest.

  1. Wash 3 pears.
  2. Cut the sides of the pears so that you have a total of 4 sides per pear, totaling 12 sides.
  3. Discard the cores.
  4. Cut each side in half.
  5. Add 3 cups of water to the steamer saucepot and place the steam basket into the saucepot.
  6. Cover the steamer and set the temperature to low.
  7. Once the water is hot, put the pear chunks into the steamer basket and cover.
  8. Gently steam for a 5 minutes.
  9. Remove the pear chunks from the steamer and place them into Vitamix or blender of your choice.
  10. Add 2 ounces of water from the saucepot (it contains a lot of nutrients) and 1 scoop of formula OR 2 ounces of breast milk.
  11. Blend until the puree can easily pour out of the blender into the ice cube trays.
  12. Add more water or breast milk if the puree is too thick.
