what fruits can you not freeze after they are pureed


Hi girls normally I just puree Ellies fruits as we use them but found that some of the fruit was going to waste so was going to make a batch tonight and freeze them but I just read the annabel karmel book we have and it said that some fruits are unsuitable for freezing, I thint that its referring to banana and melon as they are the 2 fruits in amongst other fruits that on another page say I can freeze, im confused lol please help

After reading this, it got me worrying!

So after researching, I found this:


Myth: You can't freeze Bananas and/or Avocados

Truth: We are unsure where this myth originated however we suspect it may be perpetuated by parents who have had their banana and/or avocado turn brown when frozen. There is no health/nutritional reason for not freezing bananas and/or avocados.

True, they may turn brown however this browning is natural and unless you began with brown and rotting fruit, the browning is not indicative of rot. Browning is the natural process that occurs as many fruits oxidize and ripen.

Im glad you've asked this as I couldnt understand why you couldnt freeze banana! My LO has just started weaning so im giving him an ice cube of Ellas kitchen pouch at the minute, good to know I can freeze the banana ones.

hi girls thanks for the reply. Before I went and made loads there I looked it up its not that they will harm the baby if frozen, like you say they can turn brown in bananas and also melon and pear just freeze a little grizzly so ive tried a few that MIGHT not freeze well before I make more but OMG you need to try blueberry, banana and mango its so so tasty xx
