1-minute baby food recipe for the #win!
But of course, we need to gussy it up a little more because baby deserves a meal that is out-of-this-world amazing. By taking 4 more minutes (which is being generous because I was drinking coffee and talking to my mom while making this puree) to prepare this tasty recipe for baby you will be making hands-down one of my girls all-time favorite purees.
It's simple, don't worry.
We start by adding one chopped ripe mango into a blender. Then we are going to add in a banana for not only extra potassium and fiber but also for an extreme amount of creaminess. Then in goes a pinch of nutmeg for an added earthy and slightly spicy taste. Just a pinch is all we need.
Then we blend it up and serve the creamiest mango-licious baby puree that ever was.
No joke, both of my girls would literally lick their plates when I made this for them when they were babies. To this day, they will still devour this puree as a snack when I pour it into a couple of reusable pouches along with a big spoonful of plain Greek yogurt.
It's truly a royal puree for any age 👑
