Papaya & Banana Mash
You can store a ripe banana in the refrigerator for a few days. The peel will turn brown but the banana flesh will stay yellow.
Combine all ingredients and mash with a fork until desired consistency.
Can You Freeze Banana Purée?
Bananas are best if mashed fresh. Bananas need lemon juice added to them to prevent browning and young babies should not have citrus until closer to one year of age. If you are making this for an older child, you can add citrus and freeze, but otherwise, mash bananas fresh.
