Banana, Blueberry + Avocado Baby Food Puree
This beautiful purple puree is not only loaded with nutrients and is delicious but it also only takes 5 minutes to make! That is what I call a triple-threat!
Ingredients in this baby food puree
Here’s a little list of the nutrients that are in this super puree –
Bananas – are filled with vitamin B6, manganese, potassium and fiber which aides in developing cardiovascular health, helps improve digestion and supports baby’s heart.
Blueberries – are a superfood that are loaded with fiber, potassium, folate, vitamin C, vitamin B6 and antioxidants that help ward off illnesses, aides in the development of healthy bones, prevents cancer and helps promote healthy cognitive function.
Avocado – are known for being an almost perfect food because they are filled with a ton of vitamin E, potassium, iron and healthy fats that are important for the development of the central nervous system and brain in both babies and toddlers.
So, if we combined all of that together we get a fun puree that is helping baby develop a healthy heart, bones, central nervous system and brain! All of that amazingness in one tasty puree!
How to Make this Puree
There really is only one step to making this easy-peasy healthy puree – toss everything into a blender and puree!
Seriously, it’s that easy!
No cooking. No steaming. No roasting. Just blending and done.
I will say that to get the blueberry peels broken down enough for a smooth puree you will need to scrape the sides of the blender down every 20 seconds and puree for at least 90 seconds. It took me a full 2 minutes of blending to get the smooth puree pictured above. But 2 minutes of paying somewhat attention to what you are doing, is totally worth it. This puree is made for all of us sleep deprived moms out there!
And since it is a copy-cat puree, I spooned this puree into my favorite reusable pouches and handed them out to my girls for snack time at the park. They devoured them in seconds and have been asking for more ever since.
So, the only downside to this amazingly easy puree is that you will be making it all the time:)
