Peach Yogurt Popsicles

One fun summertime activity to do with your toddler is to make homemade popsicles. These peach popsicles are made with peach slices, plain yogurt and honey to add a little sweetness to them. My daughter loves to help me make these and to eat them in the backyard when they are ready. You can feel […]

Corn, Yogurt, and Butternut Squash Puree

As your baby grows, they will move from smooth pureed textures to more chunky textures. That way, they can start to hopefully break in some of those new teeth coming through. This ‘puree’ is perfect for transitioning from different textures, around the ages of 9-11 months! Corn, Yogurt, and Butternut Squash Puree Ingredients 1 cup […]

Black Bean and Oatmeal Puree

I broke down the other day and just grabbed a handful of pre-made baby foods (organic, of course). Don’t judge me. Which I know you would never. Those things come in handy while driving on the road or at the park. Because we all know when a kid is hungry they get hungry fast! Out […]

Making Your Own Coconut Yogurt

While I tend to drink all kinds of milk, I have a natural tendency to find an alternative to cow’s milk when I can. I don’t have any aversion to cow’s milk, I just began to question why we drink so much of it and why pediatricians push it unto parents and children so much […]

Blackberry Kale Puree

“Dang, Mommy! This one is good!” I say to myself as I feed my little one this fun mix of goodies packed into a puree. I had never thought to blanch kale before blending it into a delicious mix, and it makes a world of a difference! This recipe has just the right amount of sweetness […]

Mango Lassi Puree

Mango Lassi is a delicious drink made with mangos and yogurt. Sounds yummy, right?

Spinach Butternut Squash Puree

When feeding my daughter Elle during her first food days, she loved anything yellow or orange. She couldn’t get enough butternut squash! If she was being picky, we always knew she’d eat that, no questions asked. Unfortunately for me, I can’t stand the smell of steamed butternut squash. That’s because one day, I forgot to add […]

Mango, Oats and Cream Puree

Good morning, baby! Are you hungry? Well, lucky for you, you and your little one can eat and enjoy this recipe together! Think of this recipe as a porridge or cereal. After blending up this puree, it smells and tastes so good! Mango has that perfect sweetness to balance out the oats and the calcium from […]

Strawberry Kale Smoothie

What makes me last all day? Eating healthy food! My Baby Bullet is perfect for making baby purees. But why not also use it to make a smoothie for myself and my baby that I can take on-the-go? Elle is 9 months old, which means she is pretty much eating all sorts of food. We watched […]

Tropical Smoothie Puree

There’s nothing more fragrant than slicing a ripe and juicy pineapple. Pineapples are rich in Vitamin C and in the plant enzyme Bromelain which helps break down protein in the body, thereby aiding digestion. This cooling smoothie is delicious for babies to eat with a spoon, for toddlers through a straw or as Kenya did […]
