Mango + Kale Baby Food Puree with Ginger
This puree has it all – super sweet mango, healthy superstar kale and a pinch of tummy yummy ginger that will leave your baby happy and healthy!
Servings: 20 ounces
- 2 mangos (I used red mangos)
- 2 pears
- 1/2-1 cup packed kale (see notes)
- 1/2 tsp fresh ginger, minced
- 1/2 water reserved from steamer, breast milk or formula
Peel, pit and chop mango. Core and chop pears. Devein and chop kale.
In a medium saucepan, bring roughly 2 inches of water to a boil over medium heat. Place the mango, pears and kale in a steamer basket over boiling water, cover, and cook for 8 minutes. Reserve steamer water. Let cool slightly.
Place mango, pear, kale, ginger and water into a blender or food processor and puree for 1-2 minutes or until smooth, adding additional water in 1/4 cup increments is needed.
Notes on Kale: I used a cup of kale, but if your little one is just starting out on kale or doesn’t like ‘green’ foods, you can go with 1/2 cup kale and the color of the puree will be only slightly darker yellow.
