In recent years, a lot of moms have started making their own baby foods. It’s got to be tough to come up with some interesting, healthy things to whip up though, and let’s face it you can’t just blend a banana and call it a day. So here are two recipes that are best for babies 6 months and up.
Banana Blueberry Buckle
This first recipe is intended to make one serving and serve immediately:
- 2 tablespoons fresh blueberries
- 1/2 large ripe banana
Puree blueberries and banana in a blender; serve.
Mango, Carrot and Apple Puree
This second recipe is for 10 servings, to be made and stored until needed:
- 1/2 cup baby carrots, chopped
- 1 cup mango, chopped
- 1 cup apple, peeled and chopped
Put carrots in a steamer pot over boiling water for 3 minutes. Add mango and apple and steam for another 2 minutes or until everything is fork tender. Put in a food processor until smooth. Cool and serve. Place in Baby Cubes and freeze. Makes 10 baby servings.
To be honest, I kind of want to eat these myself. Do YOU have any DIY baby food recipes that you and your kiddos love?
