I use bananas in almost every baby food puree I’ve ever made for my now 10-month-old. I know he’s not allergic to it, I usually buy them for my toddler as well (so they are always around), and a banana will actually give most mixes that perfect creamy consistency you want for the earlier eaters in your life.
Anywhoosier – Peaches and maybe you guessed it – bananas.
So peaches aren’t always the cheapest even when they are in season, but it’s a common enough flavor to attempt to get into your baby’s pallet. So fresh or frozen will be fine – I used frozen for these pictures.
- I let them thaw in their bag for a little bit before tossing them into my favorite food processor *affiliate link*, maybe 10 minutes just on the counter top.
- Toss them into the processor and get them going – it should turn into a chunky slushy like consistency.
- Stop to throw in your banana. (I broke into about four chunks and gave my toddler a piece – nanner lover there)
- Puree until your spoonable thickness for an icecube tray and boom you just made breakfast for your 6 to 12 month old for the next week.
Head’s up – 32 oz bag of peaches and 2 bananas got me 2 icecube trays total of food plus a small bowl to taste test 🙂Using a banana in most baby food puree will add the PERFECT consistency! #smartmomstuff… Click To Tweet
- Add in some oatmeal for the kiddo to make thicker if needed!
- Add yogurt to get your little one some healthy probiotics!
- Use in YOUR breakfast smoothies to creatively add fruits and vegetables!
- Add cinnamon, vanilla, nutmeg, or other coordinating spices for flavor depth (If using in smoothies).
I literally tricked my fiance into licking this off a spoon because it looks like ice cream.
Guess what? He liked it!
