Blackberry Avocado Smoothie

Blackberries are naturally tart, so when I make this blackberry avocado smoothie, I also add some ripe banana to sweeten it up. Half of an avocado gives this blackberry smoothie a thick texture and healthy fats for your fast growing little one. Freeze the banana ahead of time if you want a cold smoothie in […]

Kale and Sweet Potato Puree

I am very excited about this kale and sweet potato puree. First off I finally found a vegetable that my daughter is really loving right now, sweet potatoes! I wanted to increase her taste buds a bit so I experimented by adding kale to her sweet potato puree. Kale is very fibrous, and packed full of beneficial […]

Pumpkin Banana Bread

Fall is already almost upon us, and my little one and I are already having fun with pumpkin in the kitchen. We recently made this healthy pumpkin banana bread together using a ripe banana, pumpkin purée, coconut oil, whole wheat flour, milk and maple syrup to sweeten it up just a bit. It is always […]

Pineapple Coconut Banana

Our new favorite things in the mornings are smoothies. The whole family can enjoy them. Sometimes I will make my smoothie the night before and keep it in a mason jar. It’s super easy for the working mom (or dad) to pour in a cup and head out the door – as well as pour […]

Strawberry Apple Carrot Purée

When I am preparing purées, I like to combine both fruit and vegetables so that we get all of the recommended servings in for the day. I have been making purées this way ever since we tested everything individually on my daughter to make sure she didn’t have any food allergies. In this mixed purée, […]

Peach Banana Quinoa Puree

The peach is a perfect fruit that pairs great with granola, yogurt, ice cream, crepes, and even as a sauté for grilled chicken. I decided to add it with the cereal-like quality of quinoa for not just the health benefits that quinoa has, but it also binds the peach and banana nicely for a puree. […]

Pancake Mix Orange Date Bread

Date puree is one of my favorite alternatives to mashed or pureed bananas. It’s equally sweet and totally versatile, which means you can replace any banana puree with date puree! This bread is subtly sweet, with a hint of citrus. I made it for my girls to have as a quick snack when they want […]

Banana and Blackberry Puree

You can start feeding your baby this recipe as early as four months old. But if your baby has chronic eczema or a food allergy, make sure to talk to your doctor first. Berries have a misconception of being a top allergenic food even though they aren’t, but do watch out when you feed them […]

Edamame, Orange, and Avocado Puree

My daughter loves edamame. She likes to squeeze the little pods until the edamame pop out, making her my little kitchen helper. I love this recipe because I can use the ingredients to make two meals, one could be my toddlers lunch with the orange slices, avocado and edamame all ready to eat while the other option […]

Watermelon Yogurt Popsicles

Entertaining kids during the summer, especially when you live in the desert, can be brutal. With it being so hot, my girls beg for popsicles to keep them cool after playing outside. I try my best to limit the overloaded sugar type popsicles, so we’ve been making our own versions to help! These have a base […]
