Fancy Pants Recipes

So, Ellie has really hit her stride with food. In addition to giving her purees, she also snatches small bits of whatever we’re eating. (Well, almost all of it. She can’t eat everything we do yet.) When your baby has the basics down, you can start making fancy pants recipes. Here are some of our favorites:

Peaches with Cinnamon & Nutmeg

Ingredients:

  • 1 bag of frozen peaches, thawed
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg

Throw the peaches in a food processor and blend together. Add a little water to thin it out and season with cinnamon and nutmeg. Don’t worry about measuring the spices. Just shake them directly into the bowl.

Now, spoon the mixture into an ice-cube tray, spreading it over the holes until smooth. Wrap the tray in saran wrap and place in the freezer until frozen. When the cubes are ready, pop them out and place them in a container in the freezer. Each cube is equal to one serving size. Thaw before using.

Blueberries, Bananas & Cinnamon

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 c. frozen blueberries
  • 2¬†bananas
  • A pinch of cinnamon (optional)

In the bowl of a food processor, add the frozen blueberries and cut up bananas. Begin to blend, adding hot tap water a little at a time. When the mixture is smooth, add a pinch of cinnamon and whir to blend.
