How to Make Prune Puree

Whether you are trying to reduce refined sugar, cut unhealthy fats, or simply make healthier recipes, Prune Purée can enhance cakes, cookies, muffins, savory sauces, and more. Our friend Meg from This Mess Is Ours shared the easiest way to make prune puree, so you can keep this versatile ingredient on hand regularly. The only question left is: will you be making naturally sweetened Teriyaki Sauce or a Chocolate Mug Cake first?

Servings: 1 cup
Prep Time:


  • 16 ounces pitted California prunes
  • 1/2 cup hot water


Combine the prunes and water in a blender. Pulse to combine, then blend until smooth, pourable consistency forms, scraping the sides if necessary. 

Store the purée in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 weeks.
