Banana and biscuit dessert

Suitable from 6 months.


  • 1 tablespoon (25g/1oz) ground rice
  • 5 tablespoons unsweetened apple juice
  • 6 tablespoons water
  • 1 ripe banana (prepared weight approx. 100g/3½oz), peeled
  • Dash of lemon juice, optional
  • 1 digestive biscuit (15g/½oz), roughly crushed

Please note:

Remember not to add salt to any of your baby's recipes. Please check ingredients carefully as some products may contain allergens that you are unaware of.


  • Measure the rice into a small pan, and stir in the apple juice and water. Cook over a medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring until the rice boils and thickens.
  • Take off the heat. Mash the banana, with a fork, in a bowl, adding a dash of lemon juice if you like, to prevent it browning, then stir in the rice mixture. Put the rice mixture and crumbled biscuits into a blender or food processor and purée to a smooth consistency, suitable for your baby and divide the mixture between 2 small bowls.
  • This mixture will not freeze and is best eaten on the day of making.
