Ingredients

  • 2 cups fresh blueberries* rinsed and picked over
  • 1/4 cup water

Optional ingredients (Based on the recipe you are using):

  • 2 tablespoons lemon or lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon Honey Syrup*

Instructions

  • Place blueberries in the bowl of a blender*.
  • If you are making this as baby food, pour in water. If you are making it to use in drinks, oatmeal, smoothies, etc, you can add in flavorings like lime juice and honey syrup instead of water.
  • Blend in medium-high speed until smooth, 30-45 seconds.
  • Pour into a jar, cover it with a lid, and store in the fridge until ready to use.

Notes

  • This recipe yields 1 1/4 cups of blueberry puree.
  • You can easily and quickly make honey syrup at home in less than 5 minutes.
  • You can use frozen blueberries as well. For best results, I recommend to thaw them before blending.
  • If you do not have a blender, you can also use a food processor. You may have to blend it longer but it would totally work.
  • To store: Place it in an airtight jar and tighten it with the lid. As long as it is stored in the fridge, it should stay fresh up to 3 days.
  • To Freeze: Portion puree into an ice cube tray and freeze it overnight. Transfer to a freezer bag for up to 3 months.
  • To Thaw: Place a cube into an airtight container and let it thaw overnight in the fridge.
