Chances are if you are reading this, you’ve had some sort of experience with baby food. Having had two babies myself, I’ve bought jarred baby food and also have made homemade baby food. Being the curious mom I am, I like to taste what my kids are eating and sometimes I can’t believe how horrible jarred baby food is. It’s not all bad, but some of them are horrible. I’ve tried my hand at making some as well, and do notice that it does tend to taste a lot better and fresher. It’s always nice to have some good help when it comes to making baby food, and Magic Bullet knows that. Share your favorite homemade baby food recipe by next week, and you could win a Magic Bullet Express!
A few things that I made myself included carrots, peas and squash. Squash was one of Rowan’s favorite baby foods, and here Rowan is enjoying butternut squash.
You can also add certain foods together which taste quite good, and applesauce is a good one to add to butternut squash. Here is my simple recipe for butternut squash with apples.
Butternut Squash with Apples
1 butternut squash
1. Cook Butternut squash according to your preference. I like to cut them in half, and cook them at 350 degrees for around 40-45 minutes, or until it is soft. I also add a bit of water to the bottom of my pan that I am using to keep the squash moist.
2. Remove from oven and spoon squash out of rine.
3. Puree in Magic Bullet or food Processor
4. Add apple sauce in equal parts to the amount of squash you have and blend.
If you aren’t going to be using all of the baby food at once, try freezing it in ice cube trays. Pour your puree into the cube trays, and then pop out and store in ziplock bags. Since each cube is an ounce, you can measure and decide just how much you want your baby to eat. This recipe is also delicious with pureed chicken and gives your baby some protein!
