Banana Strawberry Cream BABY FRUIT BLEND
This tasty combination is always a hit with babies. You can use fresh or frozen strawberries depending on the season. Please always choose organic strawberries because conventional strawberries are one of the top 10 most heavily laden pesticide produce items.
Makes 10 Servings
Time: ~15 minutes
1 medium ripe banana
1-10z package organic frozen strawberries (left at room temperature to thaw a bit)
1/4 cup grass-fed organic heavy cream
2 teaspoons chia seeds
Place the strawberries and banana into a food processor and pulse until desired texture is reached. Keep it smoother for new eaters, and leave some texture for more advanced eaters. Add the chia seeds and heavy cream. Pulse to combine.
Transfer to a baby food freezer tray and freeze. Once frozen transfer to a sealable ziplock bag or mason jar. Pull out as needed and thaw overnight in fridge or quickly microwave ~15 seconds. Make sure to feel the mixture before serving to make sure it didn't get too hot.
Tip: You can mix this into cooked oatmeal or into whole milk yogurt if desired. If you transfer some into a silicone teether, then you have a baby fruit popsicle!
