Why is yogurt always messy? {blueberry, pear and thyme yogurt for baby}

3 | January 6, 2010

Without fail yogurt will always end up on her face, clothes, floor and in her hair. It is unavoidable.

Blueberry – Pear – Thyme Yogurt (stage 3 food 8 to 12 months) · a little bears favorite

1 oz. blueberry, pear, and thyme puree (see recipe below)

2 oz. whole organic yogurt

mix and serve

Blueberry – Pear – Thyme Puree (stage 2 food 6 to 8 months)

1 cup frozen blueberries

1/4 cup of water

3/4 cup pears mashed or pureed

4 sprigs of fresh thyme

Bring water to a boil and add blueberries. Simmer for 15 minutes or until berries are soft. Spoon out blueberries and reserve liquid. Toss the thyme sprigs. Place blueberries and pears in food processor or blender. Blend until smooth adding reserved liquid from the blueberries if needed. This makes 16 ounces more or less of puree. I place puree in ice-cube trays and freeze. When frozen take out cubes and place in labeled freezer bags. Store for up to 3 months. 1 frozen cube equals 1 ounce.

** As always check with your physician before introducing a new food

    I have been making a ton of your recipes for my son and so far he loves them all! For this one I’m confused on the thyme? Do you put the whole sprigs in the food processor or do you remove the thyme leaves and toss the sprigs away and just use leaves? I never really cook with fresh herbs… just the dried ones… but I got fresh thyme for this recipe! I know he will love it! TIA

    Dear In Sock Monkey Slippers,

    I am thrilled that I found this site. I will be using your recipes for myself. I am an adult who had pelvic radiation. I can’t get veggie or fruit into my body now. It’s been about 2 yrs. now. I will be trying these recipes. I think they might be the thing I need to get these foods into my body . I will try stage 2. I can’t even go to stage 3. It will never work. Thank you so much. Have a wonderful day. If you have anymore recipes just send my way. TY
