Benefits of Blueberries for Baby
  • Nutritious: Blueberries are chock full of essential nutrients for our body. They are high in vitamin C, which is necessary for proper immune function and iron absorption, and vitamin K, which is important for blood clotting for when baby gets a boo-boo. They’re also high in the mineral manganese, which helps with the metabolism of protein, lipids, and carbohydrates. In addition, blueberries are a good source of fiber, which promotes digestion and gut health, and antioxidants, powerful anti-cancer agents.
  • Health Benefits: Blueberries have been associated with many health benefits. Because of their high levels of antioxidants and fiber, they can reduce the risk of cancer, heart disease, and diabetes.

Superfood for Superbaby: blueberries are often touted as a superfood because they’re one of the fruits highest in antioxidants. 

Frequently Asked Questions

When can you introduce blueberries to your baby?

Whether you’re starting your baby on purees or are doing baby-led weaning, blueberries are a wholesome and enjoyable first food for your baby! When a baby can start on solids is determined by their own rate of development, which generally comes between 4-6 months of age for purees and after 6 months for baby-led weaning. Some of the developmental milestones your baby needs to reach in order to start on solids include: if your baby has solid control of their head and neck, if your baby has doubled in weight, and if your baby is reaching for or opening their mouth when you eat (see my guide here). Before you start your baby’s feeding journey, you should consult with your pediatrician to make sure your child is developmentally ready.

Are blueberries a choking hazard for baby?

Yes, blueberries can be a choking hazard if presented in a way that baby is not developmentally ready for. To minimize the risk of choking, flatten them with your fingers or quarter large ones, and never leave your baby unattended while eating.

Are blueberries a common allergen?

Blueberries are not listed as one of the top eight food allergens, so are not considered a common allergy. However, it does exist. If an immediate family member has an allergy to salicylates, you may need to avoid blueberries.  

How to Serve Blueberries to Baby

There are several different ways to prepare blueberries for your baby! You can make them into a smooth puree, a combination puree, a chunky puree for stage three, mashed and spread on toast, or serve them whole for baby-led weaning or a finger food. Here are 10 of my favorite ways to serve them:

  • Roasted Blueberry Puree 
  • Simmered Blueberry Puree
  • Beaba Babycook Blueberry Puree 
  • 2-Minute Blueberry Puree
  • 6 Delicious Combination Purees
  • Mashed Blueberry with Chicken & Avocado
  • Chunky Blueberry Puree with Yogurt
  • Blueberry for Baby-Led Weaning or Finger Foods: flattened, halved or quartered
  • Mashed Blueberry with Chicken & Avocado
  • Chunky Blueberry Puree with Yogurt

Frozen vs. Fresh Blueberries: if fresh blueberries are not in season or in your budget, frozen blueberries would be a great option for you. They are nutritionally similar and easy to find in most grocery stores.

Tools Needed

  • Baby Bowls
  • Suction Baby Plates
  • Baby Spoons
  • BEABA Babycook
  • Freezer Storage Tray
  • Gootensil
  • Saucepan
  • Baking Sheet

Roasted Blueberry Puree

This is the type of recipe you make for your baby but end up eating yourself. It’s just that good! Roasting the blueberries is key to getting a deep rich blueberry flavor that highlights their natural sweetness while keeping their crisp taste. It does require you to turn on your oven, which can be a deterrent in the hot summer months, but it is well worth it.

How to Serve: you can serve this puree as-is, mixed with an apple, pear, sweet potato puree, or swirled into oatmeal, yogurt, or ricotta.  

Instructions (see below for the full recipe): place blueberries on a baking sheet and sprinkle with cinnamon. Roast in an oven for 20 minutes until the blueberries are bursting with juices. Place the roasted blueberries into a blender or food processor and puree until smooth.

Simmered Blueberry Puree

Since blueberries have such a high water content, it is sometimes hard to get a thick enough puree for baby by just blending them raw (which you can still do). For this recipe, we simmer the blueberries so that some of their water gets cooked off, leaving you with a thicker puree. This cooking method also lets the blueberry’s natural sweetness come through, which calms down the blueberries, sometimes overwhelming, tartness.

How to Serve: you can serve this puree as-is, mixed with an apple, pear, carrot puree, or swirled into oatmeal, yogurt, or ricotta.

Instructions (see below for the full recipe): place blueberries in a small saucepan. Heat for 10 minutes or until the blueberries are super soft and falling apart. Place the simmered blueberries into a blender or food processor and puree until smooth.

Blueberry Tip: this is a great recipe for using frozen blueberries. You can add frozen blueberries straight to the saucepan and simmer for 12-14 minutes or until soft and thawed through.

BEABA Babycook Blueberry Puree

One of my favorite ways to make a fresh, flavorful, and nutrient-dense blueberry baby food puree, with the touch of a button, is with the BEABA Babycook! It couldn’t get any easier or more hands-off than this. All we do is load up the blueberries into the Babycook, hit steam, and let the machine do all of the work.  

How to Serve: you can serve this puree as-is, mixed with an apple, avocado, carrot puree, or swirled into oatmeal, yogurt, or ricotta.

Instructions (see below for the full recipe): place blueberries into the stainless steel steamer basket. Fill the water tank to level 1. Place the steamer basket inside the glass jar, close the lid and push the steam button. Once done, pour out and reserve any excess water. Transfer the cooked blueberries into the glass jar, close the lid and push the blend button until smooth, adding the reserved blueberry water if needed.

2-Minute Blueberry Puree

Want to make a tasty blueberry puree for baby but are short on time? Then this puree recipe is for you! We are simply going to blend up some fresh blueberries and call it a day! Yes, it can be that easy.

Instructions (see below for the full recipe): place the blueberries into a blender and blend for 1-2 minutes or until smooth. This puree will start on the thinner side but will thicken in the fridge as it chills.

Blueberries for Self-Feeding

Blueberries are a great food for your baby to self-feed, whether for baby-led weaning, which happens around 6 months of age or during the finger foods stage, which is at 9 months.

Flattened: the best way to serve your baby blueberries as a solid food at 6+ months is to gently pinch the blueberry into small, flattened discs. By pinching them into discs, makes the blueberries not as big of a choking hazard and gives your baby a nice flat surface to grab onto.

Quartered: you can easily quarter blueberries with a small sharp knife or kitchen scissors for your baby when their pincer grasp starts developing, which is roughly 9 months of age.

Halved: once your baby has mastered the quartered blueberries, you can move into just halving the blueberries with a sharp knife or kitchen scissors. You can start serving halved blueberries to your baby around 10+ months.

6 Blueberry Combination Purees

You can mix and match blueberries with many other great fruits and veggies to make fun combination purees. Here are my 6 favorites:

  • Blueberry Banana Puree: Place one ripe banana, 1 cup of blueberries, and 1 tsp fresh lemon juice into a blender, and puree for 1-2 minutes or until smooth. Serve to baby, store in the fridge for up to 4 days or freeze for a later meal.
  • Blueberry Avocado Baby Food: Place one ripe avocado, 1 cup blueberries, and 1 tsp fresh lemon juice into a blender, and puree for 1-2 minutes or until smooth. Serve to baby, store in the fridge for up to 4 days or freeze for a later meal.
  • Blueberry Sweet Potato Puree: Follow this Sweet Potato Puree recipe and add 4 cups of blueberries to the baking sheet when there are 20 minutes left for the sweet potatoes to cook. Puree as directed in the recipe card using a pinch of cinnamon instead of the curry powder.
  • Blueberry Apple Puree: Follow this Apple Puree recipe and add 2 cups of blueberries to the saucepan before cooking. Cook and puree as directed in the recipe card.
  • Blueberry Pear Baby Food: Follow this Pear Puree recipe and add 2 cups of blueberries to the saucepan before cooking. Cook and puree as directed in the recipe card.

Mashed Blueberry Chicken & Avocado

This mashed blueberry, chicken, and avocado chunky puree for your baby is a great way to serve them a full meal in one tasty bite. You can serve this chunky puree on a piece of toast, spoon-feed it to baby, toss it with some pasta, let your baby self-feed it to themselves, or load a self-feeding spoon with a bite and hand the spoon to your baby. 

Instructions (see below for the full recipe): place some chopped blueberries, cooked and shredded chicken, and a few chunks of ripe avocado on a cutting board and, using the back of a fork, mash until chunky and incorporated with each other. 

More Flavors: you can also use steamed or roasted sweet potatoes, banana, soft tofu, cooked apples, cooked and shredded salmon, and more!

Finely chopped blueberries mixed with a thick plain yogurt make for a great protein-packed meal for your baby!

How to Serve: you can serve this to your baby on a spoon, a self-feeding spoon, on a piece of toast, pancake, or waffle.  

Instructions (see below for the full recipe): place chopped blueberries on a cutting board or in a small bowl. Add in the yogurt and stir until incorporated. Serve to your baby with a gootensil, on a 1-3 inch piece of toast, place on a plate for baby to eat with their own hands, or spoon feed it to your baby.


Oatmeal is a great food for your baby, and adding antioxidant-rich blueberries to it, makes it even better! You can make blueberry oatmeal into a smooth puree, a chunky puree, or you can let clumps of oatmeal cool for an easier way to serve oats for baby-led weaning.

Instructions (see below for the full recipe): bring water to a boil and add in oats, blueberries, and a pinch of cinnamon. Let cook, stirring often, for 10 minutes, let cool slightly. Serve as is, or transfer to a blender and puree until you have your desired consistency.

Storage Instructions

You can freeze any of the purees listed above. For finger foods, you can store any leftovers in the fridge in an air-tight container for up to 3 days. 


You can store the blueberry puree in an airtight container in the fridge for 3 days. 


This blueberry puree can be frozen for up to 3 months.

  • Spoon pureed blueberry into a freezer storage container – do not overfill. 
  • Place the lid on the storage container or cover it with a piece of saran wrap and label it with the date and recipe name. 
  • Place the tray into the freezer and let freeze completely – preferably overnight. 
  • Pop-out the baby food cubes and place in a zip-lock baggie or stasher bag – don’t forget to re-label the baggie or stasher bag for future reference. 

Recipe Tips
  • Picking Blueberries: when purchasing blueberries, look for plump and deep blueberries with a dusting of gray on the surface. A blueberry that is too firm or shows any hint of red isn’t fully ripe and will most likely be tart.
  • Fresh or Frozen: You can use either fresh or frozen blueberries for any of the puree, mashed or chunky recipes below, you will need to thaw and drain the blueberries first. It is best to use fresh blueberries if serving as a solid as they will easier for your baby to pick up and hold. 
  • Blender: Because blueberries condense down to such a small amount of puree, I use a small blender when pureeing any of these recipes. You can also use a handheld emersion blender or food processor. Another option is to double the recipe if you still want to use your regular-sized blender.

5-Minute Banana, Blueberry + Avocado Baby Food Puree

Home » Feeding Style » Baby Food Purees » Stage Two » 5-Minute Banana, Blueberry + Avocado Baby Food Puree

4.92 stars (35 ratings)

This 5-Minute Banana, Blueberry + Avocado Baby Food Puree is super tasty and also packed with nutrients that help with bone, heart and brain development! Bonus – it’s so easy to make (less then 5 minutes from start to finish) that even the most sleep deprived moms will have the time and energy to make this super-powered meal for baby! Great for 6+ months and up.

Banana, Blueberry + Avocado Baby Food Puree

This beautiful purple puree is not only loaded with nutrients and is delicious but it also only takes 5 minutes to make! That is what I call a triple-threat!

Ingredients in this baby food puree

Here’s a little list of the nutrients that are in this super puree –

Bananas – are filled with vitamin B6, manganese, potassium and fiber which aides in developing cardiovascular health, helps improve digestion and supports baby’s heart.

Blueberries – are a superfood that are loaded with fiber, potassium, folate, vitamin C, vitamin B6 and antioxidants that help ward off illnesses, aides in the development of healthy bones, prevents cancer and helps promote healthy cognitive function.

Avocado – are known for being an almost perfect food because they are filled with a ton of vitamin E, potassium, iron and healthy fats that are important for the development of the central nervous system and brain in both babies and toddlers.

So, if we combined all of that together we get a fun puree that is helping baby develop a healthy heart, bones, central nervous system and brain! All of that amazingness in one tasty puree!

How to Make this Puree

There really is only one step to making this easy-peasy healthy puree – toss everything into a blender and puree!

Seriously, it’s that easy!

No cooking. No steaming. No roasting. Just blending and done.

I will say that to get the blueberry peels broken down enough for a smooth puree you will need to scrape the sides of the blender down every 20 seconds and puree for at least 90 seconds. It took me a full 2 minutes of blending to get the smooth puree pictured above. But 2 minutes of paying somewhat attention to what you are doing, is totally worth it. This puree is made for all of us sleep deprived moms out there!

And since it is a copy-cat puree, I spooned this puree into my favorite reusable pouches and handed them out to my girls for snack time at the park. They devoured them in seconds and have been asking for more ever since.

So, the only downside to this amazingly easy puree is that you will be making it all the time:)

Blueberry Summer Oatmeal

The dish can be served with different berries and sweetened with jam. It will be even more useful to cook porridge from whole oatmeal.

There are two ways to prepare oatmeal. nine0003

Breakfast porridge can be prepared the night before. In this case, use water instead of milk. It should be heated in a saucepan, add cereal and natural sweetener, mix and leave until the morning. The next morning, the porridge will be almost ready, if desired, it can be slightly warmed up.

If you are preparing oatmeal "for now", you need to pour the milk into a saucepan, add cereal and turn on the stove to low heat. Stirring occasionally, bring the porridge to a boil. Then turn off and let stand for a few minutes so that the flakes swell and the porridge cools down. nine0003

Add sweetener and stir.

Top with blueberries and dried fruit and garnish with a pinch of vanilla or cinnamon.

    Strawberry Blueberry Ice Cream

    Berry ice cream only needs four ingredients to make. Strawberries and blueberries can be either fresh or frozen.


    • 500 ml cream 35% fat
    • 450 gr strawberries
    • 397 gr condensed milk
    • 250 gr blueberries

    Cooking step by step

    If using frozen strawberries, thaw them first and drain the liquid. Blueberries are used in ice cream form.

    Pour the cream and condensed milk into a large bowl. Beat with a mixer until thick - it should not fall from the whisk. It is also necessary to ensure that the cream does not break into small lumps.

    Mash strawberries with a blender or fork.

    Scatter 2/3 blueberries and strawberry puree into the cream mixture. Mix. nine0003

    Pour the mass into molds. Sprinkle the remaining blueberries on top, pressing them a little into the ice cream.

    Remove the ice cream from the freezer and leave for at least 3-4 hours. Then it will be a little softer, but already tasty. Ideally, it is better to leave the mass to harden overnight.

    If there are no molds, you can freeze berry ice cream in one large container. In this case, you can lightly mix the strawberry puree with the cream mixture in it. And as a result, after hardening, you will get beautiful layers of strawberry puree. nine0003
