Baby Food
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!

My Experience
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
Ingredients:
1 butternut squash
applesauce

Directions:
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!

    crushed graham crackers.

    I boiled apples until tender then added to a blender with crushed graham crackers. Blend until pureed and crackers soften within a few minutes for easy swallowing.

    Sweet Potato Custard

    1 cup mashed cooked sweet potato
    1/2 cup mashed banana
    1 cup evaporated skim milk
    2 Tbs packed brown sugar

    2 beaten egg yolks
    1/2 tsp salt
    Nonstick cooking spray, as needed
    1 Tbsp sugar
    1 tsp ground cinnamon

    Get out a bowl and add the sweet potato and banana to it. Make sure both are well mashed. Add the milk and stir until combined. Add the brown sugar, egg yolks and the salt and mix well.

    Add the mixture to a 1 quart casserole dish that has been sprayed with the cooking spray.

    Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a small cup or bowl and sprinkle it over top of sweet potato mixture.

    Bake at 325 for 45 minutes. Your custard is done when a knife or toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

    I used to blend together:

    carrots, cooked save the water
    raisins, cook in the smallest amount of water until slightly plumped up
    1/2 an apple, chopped

    Blend carrots, raisins, and apple together. If it is too thick, add in a small amount of the carrot water and the raisin water until you get the desired thickness.

    It would be wonderful to win the Magic Bullet. I can find so many uses for one today. Thanks for the chance.

    Beets – Basic Purée

    1 bunch of fresh beets, golden beets have a milder flavor

    1. Wash then peel the beets (be sure to cut off the tops, you can actualy steam or saute like spinage.) and then cut the beets into small chunks
    2. Place chunks into a steamer pan with just enough water visible through the steamer basket. You may also boil them in a scant amount of water if you prefer.
    3. Steam until tender
    4. Do not reserve any left over water to use for thinning out the beets as Nitrates may seep into the cooking water
    5. Place into Magic Bullet begin pureeing.
    6. Add water as necessary to achieve a smooth, thin consistency.

    You can also add some apple or pear to sweeten the beets

    My 1 year old son loves sweet potatoes, but hates beef so to try to expand his pallete a little, I have tried the following which he LOVES! We’re Cuban, so I love having him try foods I grew up on.

    Cuban Sweet Potato Beef Mash

    1 sweet potato, peeled & cut into large chunks
    1 lbs. of stew beef, trimmed of all fat
    1 carrot, peeled and cut into small chunks
    1 malanga, (available in most grocery stores, looks like a yam) peeled & cut into chunks
    2 tsp. onion powder
    vegetable stock to cover all
    1/4 cup unsweeted apple juice

    Mix all ingredients in Dutch oven and bring to boil. Let simmer until beef is cooked through and vegetables are tender. Puree beef and vegetables together with enough broth to thin into desired consistency. YUM!

    you can bypass buying the cereal flakes that come in boxes by making your own baby cereals. All you have to do is grind your rice (consider using brown for more nutrition) or oats or barley until they turn to a powdery form. Then take 1/4 cup of the powder and add it to 1 cup of water that you have brought to a boil. simmer on low and stir for about 10 minutes. You may thin this mixture further once cooked if you desire by blending the cooked mixture with water, juice or breastmilk or formula. You can also work with this adding fruit purees etc.

    My cousins husband is Indian and she once shared this with me. It’s way different so not very well known.

    Chicken And Sweet Potato Curry

    1 chicken breast, cut into 1″ pieces.
    2 sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
    4 oz (1/2 cup) red lentils
    one small onion, finely chopped
    1 tbsp safflower oil
    pinch cinnamon
    pinch cardamom
    pinch cumin
    pinch coriander
    pinch turmeric
    16 – 24 fl oz (2-3 cups) water

    Heat the oil and fry the onions with the cinnamon until tender.
    Add the chicken and cook until golden brown.
    Add the potatoes and spices and stir well.
    Finally, add the water and lentils and cook for about 30 mins, until the lentils are soft. You may need to add extra water towards the end of the cooking time, to prevent the curry from becoming too dry.
    Serve with brown or white overcooked rice.

    We live on a farm that grows a wide variety of root veggies!
    So here is my Rutabaga Delight.

    1/2 rutabaga (peeled and cubed)
    1 parsnip (peeled & cubed)
    1 carrot (peeled & cubed)
    *try to make your cubes roughly the same size so they steam evenly.
    2 cups vegetable stock (or water, but the stock gives it a richer flavor)

    Bring the stock up to boil and add your veggies. Add them to your pot & reduce heat. Let them simmer till tender. Add them all (including the stock) to your blender & puree.
    *If you need added crunch, add a bit of coarsely chopped cheerios. Younger children will prefer it nice & smooth.

    My daughter loves this stuff!

Avocados are nice because they mush up easily and so do bananas so I didn’t really need to add much wet stuff to it. Avocados are healthy and the bananas were sweet so it was a favorite of mine and Gavin’s.

    Peaches a la Squash

    2 peeled & pitted Peach
    1/2 cup pureed acorn or butternut squash

    Steam peaches if needed and puree or mash. Mix the pureed peaches into the squash and serve.

    This pairs nicely with chicken as well as stirred into rice or oatmeal cereal

    Pears
    2-3 ripe medium-sized pears
    half cup of water

    Chop pears into squares (about a fourth of an inch), discarding the peel and core. Place pears in sauce pan with water and simmer on medium-low heat until pears are tender – approximately 10-12 minutes.

    Once pears are tender and cooled, all contents of pan (including liquid) to food processor. Puree until smooth. Add water if necessary.

    In the summer I would make this and not only did baby love it but so did the whole family

    Cool melon soup

    1 thick slice honeydew melon
    (1/4 cup) unsweetened apple juice
    (1/4 cup) vegetable stock
    (1/8 cup) yogurt
    dash of cinnamon

    In a blender, combine the melon, juice, stock and yogurt.
    Puree until smooth, then sprinkle with the cinnamon (if using).
    Best served chilled For the grownup you can add a swig of mint

    Fruit Smoothie Inspired Mash

    (This is for when they are old enough for berries)

    One bag frozen berry mix that includes blackberries, strawberries and blueberries
    One container plain yogurt
    Sprinkle of Cinnamon
    One frozen banana

    Mix all of this together then freeze in ice cube trays and let the baby suck on the cubes in the hot summer. Also great for teething! You can also serve fresh on a spoon.

    I made this up when the boys were tiny and it was HOT outside. When they are old enough, a little honey to add sweetness is good on top, but wait until they are old enough for honey!

    Our family has a real thing for Sweet Potatoes, so this is what I did for my four babies during the years:

    Scrub about 3 or 4 sweet potatoes and bake at 450 degrees F. for 40 to 50 minutes, testing with a fork for desired softness. Allow to cool. Peel, then out in food processor, adding vegetable cooking juices, milk, or a bit of apple juice.

    I also suggest you can use a potato masher to have it more textured, or a Magic Bullet! lol.
