bananaquac! {banana & avocado mash for baby stage 1+}

0 | March 6, 2010

Bananaquac. Sounds completely gross right? I thought so too. Until one day out of frustration while trying to get my daughter to eat avocados I mixed a banana with it. Now six months later she still devours it.

Bananas are great sources for fiber and potassium and avocados contain folate, fiber, iron, Vitamin E, and healthy fats. Mixed together and you have an ideal meal.

Bananaquac makes 4 oz or 1/2 cup { for baby stage 1 +}

1/2 large banana, peeled

1/2 large avocado, peeled and seeded

In a bowl mash banana and avocado with a fork till desired texture is reached and serve. Just that simple. If you desire a smoother texture (which might be ideal for baby’s first food) puree in a food processor or blender until smooth. Can be frozen for storage but will discolour and can alter the texture. It’s so easy I just make it fresh.

For babies 8 months and up, try adding some tofu for added protein.
