This is a great and simple puree to have on hand to serve plain or added to oatmeal, yogurt, and smoothies. It’s so good in fact I made extra and made myself a smoothie. Why should the babies have all the fun, right? It’s recommended that babies should not have strawberries until the age of twelve months due to the possibility of an allergic reaction.

Strawberry, Mango, and Banana Puree {12 months +}

1 1/2 cup strawberries (around 12 strawberries) · strawberries are on the “dirty dozen” list, buy organic if possible

1 cup mango (1 large mango)

1 banana

Peel mango and banana. Dice fruit.

Place fruit in food processor or blender and puree until desired consistency is reached. You can also skip the puree all together and mash everything with a fork for a chunkier texture.

Spoon puree into an ice cube tray. Cover with plastic wrap and freeze. Once frozen, place cubes in freezer bag. Store in freezer for up to three months. Each cube is 1 ounce. Defrost in microwave for 15 seconds to serve. Makes one ice cube tray plus a little more to serve immediately.

For a smoothie: Defrost 3 cubes and add to 2 ounces of milk and 1 ounce of plain or vanilla yogurt. Stir. Oh it’s sooooo good.

I see a very loud day ahead of me.
