Featured Recipe: Bananaberry Power Puree
For babies 6 months and older
Because blueberries have amazing antioxidant power, try to incorporate them into your purees as much as you can. If your blueberries are a little too tart, make sure your banana is super ripe to balance things out. Coupled with yogurt’s calcium, protein, phosphorus, and probiotics, this power puree is a perfectly sweet way to give your baby superfoods.
Yield 4-5 servings
- 1/4 cup frozen organic blueberries
- 1 small, ripe organic banana (with lots of brown spots)
- 4 ounces whole fat plain or vanilla-flavored organic yogurt for babies
- Blend blueberries and banana. Puree until smooth.
- Swirl together puree and yogurt with a spoon. Serve immediately.
- Refrigerate any leftovers for up to 3 days.

“The cookbook is divided into age appropriate recipes, with a push towards a broader flavor offering as the child grows. I liked the menu plans for little ones. The big winner was the Pumpkin Risotto. It’s noted to be both freezer friendly, and parent friendly—both winners in my book. What was even better is that the little guy LOVED his risotto, too.” (Random Recycling)
