Puree Monday - Kiwi-Nana Mash
This is a perfect bebe food recipe and so easy to make... It actually takes less than two minutes (yes, I timed it). Bebe B adores it and it makes a perfect mix-in for her oatmeal or yogurt. The kiwis are tart but mixed with the mild, sweet banana it’s sometimes more palatable for tiny taste-buds! Kiwis are very low on the allergen risk scale but they are acidic and like any acidic fruits introduce slowly and watch your bebe for signs of reaction like a diaper rash. If you do notice this it’s best to consult your pediatrician and wait a month or two before trying to introduce it again.
Kiwi-Nana Mash - 8 Months+
2 ripe kiwi fruits
1 ripe banana
pinch of nutmeg (optional)
Peal the banana and break it into four or five pieces over a small bowl, Slice one end off each kiwi and use a small metal spoon to scoop out the insides from the brown fuzzy skin (you can peal them but this way I have found is fastest and easiest) and dump them in the bowl with the banana. Add the pinch of nutmeg and using either a potato masher or a large wooden spoon mash up the mixture till you reach your desired consistency. It will be a little chunky but because it so soft it’s a great mix to get your bebe used to different textures. You can puree it in a food processor or Beaba babycook, just be aware it will get very thin, almost soup consistency. This recipe will keep up to 2 days in the fridge or 3 months in the freezer. This recipe will fill about 1 ice cube tray (10-20 servings).
