What you need:
*A Blender or Food Processor
*A Can of Green Beans
That's it? Yep, that's it!
Instructions: 1.) Pour Green Beans into Blender or Food Processor. Important: DO NOT DRAIN GREEN BEANS. Most often a large number of nutrients from vegetables are in the fluid in canned veggies. Instead of using water like I do in most of my other recipes, I just use the fluid from the can to form the liquid consistency.
2.) Blend until you have a smooth liquid consistency (if you have to add a little water to achieve this - do so. Stir & serve.
Refrigerate leftovers & serve within 24 hours or freeze & thaw for meals at a later date. To re-heat: DO NOT EVER USE A MICROWAVE. Re-heat on the stove on low heat until mildly warm. Use your own discretion to make sure it is not too hot for your baby.

What you need:
*A little over a handful of blueberries
*Blender or Food Processor
Directions: Rinse your blueberries & put them in your blender of choice. I use my Ninja & absolutely love it, but any Food Processor or Blender should work. Peel your banana, break it up, and place in blender. Put just enough water in to produce a liquid consistency (I usually use about 1/3 to 1/2 cup, but you can play with what works best for how much you're putting in by adding as you go). Blend, stir, & serve. Refrigerate leftovers or if you make a big batch, freeze & thaw for future meals.
I made these for my little man & as you can see by the photo- he LOVES them. He was smacking his tray demanding more! I couldn't get them in his mouth fast enough! See my "Baby Food Recipes" blog posts for more baby food recipes!

Our newest baby is being introduced to foods & I wanted to share this easy- peasy recipe in hopes that more Mama's & Daddy's see how easy and cost efficient it is to feed your baby the very foods in your fridge right now!
Before I started making my guy's food I had no clue how to make baby food. It seemed like a scientific anomaly almost. A person can make their own baby food? Sure they can! We can do anything we want and it's usually quite simpler than we ever imagined. Baby food is no different.
Pardon my picture and my extremely under-prepared photo shoot, but getting ready to feed my little man was all I had on my mind before I started snapping pic's ;)
Here's my awesomely easy baby food recipe for apples. I will post them all as we go. Tomorrow we are going to try carrots!
Step 1: Peel, dice, & boil your apple for 5-7 minutes. This should soften your apple.
Step 2: Choose your puree machine of choice (I love my Ninja). You DO NOT need anything fancy! A blender will work just as well. You may even use a potato masher! Make sure to keep a tad bit of water in when pureeing.
Step 3: Stir it up. Check for chunks & dump them or mash them up more especially if you are just introducing this to your baby & he or she does not have teeth.
Voila! In less than 10 minute's baby's lunch or dinner is all done!
