There's something so rewarding about making your own baby food. Except if your little one refuses to eat it, which was the story of my older three kids.
I'd puree carrots, sweet potatoes, garden fresh produce and they would refuse to eat it. It was frustrating to say the least.
With my one year old, I've mostly purchased organic baby food puree, but I've made one easy recipe that he loves. The best part is it doesn't require cooking, only blending.
To make this puree, simply slice an avocado in half and place one half in a blender or food processor. For this puree, we're only using half an avocado, so I use the side of the avocado that doesn't have the pit and tightly wrap the other piece for later.
Next, add one full banana and your half of an avocado to a blender. I use a nutribullet because the small cups are a great size for a single serving of baby food!
Add 1 tablespoon of water, and blend!
Because this has avocado and banana, it's best to eat quickly after making as both will brown with air exposure- but the taste won't change!
What's your little one's favorite baby food puree to eat? Tell me about it in the comments!
