Broccoli and Olive Oil Puree

My 2-and-a-half year old daughter has a love/hate relationship with broccoli. Some days she will eat half a stock of steamed broccoli while other days she turns a sour face away and refuses. My husband and I have at times resorted to using her favorite fruit gummy as bribery to get her to eat her […]

Baby’s First Blueberry “Ice Cream”

Before I lose you at “ice cream,” let me first tell you that this isn’t real ice cream, of course! It is made with frozen bananas and no added sugar, but tastes just as good (if not better) than real ice cream. Your baby will love this healthy version of blueberry ice cream, and you […]

Apple Spinach Pear and Blueberry Purée

I love preparing homemade purées for my baby. There is something about watching the process of nutritious, whole foods being cooked, blended up, and finally eaten by my baby that gives me a good feeling inside. Preparing nutritious purées for your baby is not only healthy for your baby, but also very easy to do! […]

Green Bean, Carrot and Rice Purée

As my daughter is getting older, it seems her pickiness about vegetables is getting worse. The only way she will eat them is hidden in a purée, like this green bean, carrot and rice one. I first steam the carrots and green beans and cook a small pot of rice. Once cooked, I blend them […]

Sweet Potato, Apple, & Spinach Puree

Spinach has always been my favorite green vegetable to use because it has a very mild taste. Any sweeter type fruit or vegetable could easily cover up the spinach taste. Thankfully for this puree, between the sweet potato and apple, your baby won’t even notice they are getting a healthy source of vitamin K! Sweet […]

Blueberry, Cherry, Spinach Puree

Oh Happy Day! Make a big batch of this puree and freeze the leftovers because your baby will love this one. It’s delicious! This puree makes me happy since spinach is antioxidant-filled and makes for the ideal veggie for babies around 8- to 10-months-old. When buying spinach make sure it’s organic and that it’s green […]

Peach Spinach Oatmeal Smoothie

When my baby girl started eating, she immediately began to favor fruits over vegetables. One way to sneak a serving of vegetables into your baby’s diet is in a delicious smoothie. This nutritious smoothie includes oatmeal, yogurt, banana, spinach and frozen peaches. The spinach is hidden by the sweet banana and peaches, so while my […]

Baby Ice with Cinnamon and Pumpkin

  When my kids turn one, they start to have a new sense of attitude towards food. They get pickier, which makes it harder to find things they want to eat. Ice cream is usually one of those foods that never gets turned away, but it’s also not the healthiest option. I discovered making ice […]

Chicken and Baby Potatoes with Red Pepper Puree

This is a fact: I am always in the kitchen. Usually creating new baby food purees or making cakes for my YouTube channel LovelyLadyCakes. I need a full time kitchen staff person to help me organize and wash dishes. When you spend as much time in the kitchen as I do, not all recipes turn […]

Healthy Squash Puree

Do you like Greek yogurt? I love it! A lot of my friends enjoy it too but usually only during breakfast. This creamy and tangy goodness shouldn’t be limited to only a morning dish, especially when so many things can pair great with it. Apple and cinnamon is a popular pair. Your favorite fresh fruit […]
