Easy apple puree and Karicare pink apple pudding

Apple puree is suitable from 4 months of age. It is a speedy, simple way to cook an apple for baby’s puree. It can be eaten on its own or added to other foods. Do not add sugar – baby doesn’t need it.

Makes about ½ cup apple puree.

1 medium-sized eating apple (eg. Braeburn, Granny Smith, Pacific Rose)

Microwave method. Tested in an 800watt oven.

  • Wash and dry apple. Use an apple corer to remove core and stem.

    With a sharp knife make a shallow cut just through the apple skin, going right around the middle (equator), then right around from stem to blossom end. This divides skin into 8 sections for easy peeling later.

  • Place apple in an oven-glass bowl or casserole, cover, then microwave on Full Power for 4 ½ minutes.
  • Leave apple to cool until you can handle it.
  • Use a teaspoon to scoop apple flesh away from skin. Discard skin. Either puree apple using a hand-held electric blender, or rub apple through a sieve to ensure no little tough bits remain. Thin if necessary with a little boiled water.
  • Serve warm or cool, or use in PINK APPLE PUDD recipe below.


Suitable from 6 months

Karicare formula powder sweetens the apple flavour slightly and the blackcurrant syrup adds extra vitamin C.

Makes ¼ cup.

¼ cup apple puree

1 scoop of Karicare First or Follow-On formula powder

¼ teaspoon Barker’s Blackcurrant syrup

  • Just before serving, use a fork to whisk the formula powder and blackcurrant syrup into the apple puree.
