Are you excited for your baby’s new journey of the discovery of food? We all are! And let us share with you some of the classics, never gets old easy to prepare puree using your Baby Bullet for your little one!
First we have to try out the no cook puree preparation. For working mothers like me, it would be heavenly to still be able to prepare food for your baby but without worrying about its nutrient content. Here’s our simple ABC’s of healthy puree recipes you can try out at home.
Amazing Avocado Puree. The wonders of this fruit full of Vitamin A and C, plus Niacin, Potassium, Iron, Calcium and Magnesium. Select an avocado on its skin- choose the green dark one with firm and full texture. Its flesh should be green and yellow around. If it is already ripe, you can just peel off the skin easily. Cut its “meat” in small pieces and mash. Or put it in your Baby Bullet’s bowl, grind and voila! You’ve got your avocado puree.
If avocados are abundant in the market, you can still select the unripe ones and store it inside the rice storage container. It will ripen after a day or two and you have a stock of this wonderful fruit. If baby’s got too much of it, then you can also use for your own avocado salad. Yum!
Brilliant Banana Puree. Ahhh who wouldn’t want this delicious bundle full of potassium? Bananas are one of the most sought after puree recipes ingredient as it is very easily, digestible. Also there are no reports of allergies and this is one great source of happiness energy!
It is good for babies who are still teething and good for the digestive system. Pediatrician recommends it for baby and even adults who are experiencing acid reflux.
What to do? Just simply peel of its skin, mash and ready to eat! For creamy and more consistent texture, you can mix it with your breastmilk. Or you can put in your Baby Bullet’s Batch Bowl, mix for about a minute and then scoop using a small spoon. Let your baby munch it up all.
Creative Carrot Puree. Bugs Bunny has already discovered the wonders of this delicioso vegetable. It’s a good source of beta-carotene or Vitamin A for good vision. It is fiber rich and that helps against ageing, heart disease and cancer! You can use cut carrots raw in small pieces and will serve as your baby’s finger food. But watch him/her while chewing it as they still have sensitive gums and they cannot chew it wholly especially if they are still on the teething phase.
You can also choose to serve grated ones or for your peace of mind, cut it in pieces, put in your Baby Bullet and grind it to be a puree. Would you opt for raw or steamed carrots? Pediatirican’s advise that cooking breaks the fiber and loses the nutrients so making a puree out of raw carrot is the best way to preserve the nutrients and serve to your baby. But as finger food and to start up for teething babies, you can steam it and cut up to become finger foods.
Choose carrots that are deep orange (as it contains more beta-carotene) and with still the vibrant green stalk on top. This assures it freshness. Storage tip: Cut the tip though before putting your carrots in the fridge to make its shelf life longer. It will stay for 2 weeks.
Dynamic Dragon Fruit Puree. This is one of the most seasonal fruits but if you have a good local source, then you’re baby is up for a yummy tummy adventure. It is of Asian origin and known as Pitaya. Select the one with brightest pink or red color; just make sure it is not too soft. Cut it in half by using a knife and the white flesh with seeds inside. It has similarity with Kiwi Fruit. Wash it, cut in quarters and put in your Baby Bullet. Grind it and add honey for taste. Let your baby taste it. The excess can be stored in an ice cube tray and can last until 2 weeks.
Vibrant Vegetable Puree. Have a choice between carrots, pumpkins, squash and/or sweet potato. These veggies are rich in Vitamin A- the beta-carotene for good eyesight and needed for baby’s growth, glowing skin and to boost immunity. To best preserve its nutrients is to steam it first before putting into your Baby Bullet for puree. You can opt to make a combination of these veggies for a better taste.
