The banana makes the best first food because of its texture. A baby can move this smooth banana around […]

Beet Banana Mango Spinach Puree

Growing up beets had the reputation of being a vegetable that my grandmother loved to eat. Like all great grandmothers she expected her grandkids to also enjoy the brightly purple root vegetable.

Papaya Pineapple Spinach and Banana

While researching new purees to feed my baby, I am always conscious of using organic fresh foods because I then know exactly what my baby will be eating.

Strawberry, Banana, Apple Puree

This is a 2-in-1 recipe! I made this puree and I just LOVED the vibrant color. It’s sweet and creamy, and my girls thought it was a pink smoothie. So I used the leftover puree, added some milk and ice, and turned it into a pink princess smoothie! Great for little and older kids! Strawberry, […]

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. […]
