If you don’t have pureed prunes, you can make prunes puree from dried prunes.
To make homemade prunes puree, soak about 1 cup of dried prunes in some fresh water for some time which will soften up the dried prunes, just process the soaked prunes with very little water (use very little water that is used for soaking) using a good quality food processor, until the puree is very smooth.
