Today was our bi-weekly grocery shopping day. It was also my power baby food making day. The grocery stores are brimming with deliciously ripe fruits and veggies.
I picked out some yummy choices for my little peanut. I made her peas & pears, pumpkin & banana, mango & strawberry, and butternut squash.
If you would like to make my baby food recipes…
Here’s what you need…
1- bag of frozen baby peas
2 medium Bosc pears
1 medium butternut squash
1 medium ripe mango
8 medium strawberries
1/2 cup of pumpkin
1 medium ripe banana
Here’s what you do…
Peas & Pears:
Peel, cut and core pears. Throw pears and about 3/4 of the bag of frozen peas into a steamer and steam until softened. Add to the food processor and process until smooth, adding water as needed. This makes about 9 servings.
Pumpkin & Banana:
Put 1/2 cup of pumpkin puree and one sliced banana into a food processor. Process until smooth. This runs thick and will need to be thinned with water. This makes about 5 servings.
Mango & Strawberry:
Peel and chunk mango, and cut the berries into similar size chunks. Place in a food processor and process until smooth, adding water as needed. This makes about 5 servings. I plan on serving this with greek yogurt for a little baby smoothie!
Cut the squash in half, scooping out the seeds. Roast in the oven at 400 degrees for 1 hr or until very tender. Spoon out the flesh from the peel and place in a food processor. Process until smooth, adding water as needed. This makes about 8 servings.
The colors of this food is brilliant! It is so fresh and delicious. I can’t wait for my little foodie to try it! Hope your baby enjoys these recipes too!
