Baby’s nectarine syllabub

Choose ripe, fragrant fruits for the optimal flavour, starting with peaches and nectarines. Out of season you can also use tinned fruit in juice. Use cream or yoghurt depending on how indulgent you want this to be, either are suitable to give to a baby from 6 months.

  • 2 ripe nectarines or peaches
  • 50g double cream or full fat natural yoghurt or 50:50
  • Zest of ¼ of a lemon


  • Some people like to remove the skin of peaches or nectarines for babies, but if you have really ripe smooth skinned fruit and blend it well, I don’t think this is necessary, as a lot of the goodness is in the skin. But remove the skins if you would like.
  • Quarter and de-stone the fruit. If your fruit is not quite ripe, steam the quarters for 4-5 minutes until soft, otherwise use raw if ripe and very soft.
  • Add the steamed, or ripe fruit to the blender with the cream or yoghurt and zest of a bit of lemon and puree until soft and whipped up to a thick yoghurt like texture.

    Tip: this also makes delicious ice lollies.
