Instructions
  1. Bananas: Peel bananas and process in food processor. Add liquid of choice (breast milk, formula or water) to reach desired consistency.
  2. Apples: Wash, peel and cut apples into like-size pieces (the smaller the pieces, the more quickly they will cook). Add to steamer and cook for 5-10 minutes, until soft. Allow to cool slightly, then add to food processer and process, adding liquid to reach desired consistency.
  3. Spinach: Rise and drain spinach. Add to steamer and cook for 5’ish minutes, until leaves wilt. Allow to cool slightly, then add to food processer and process, adding liquid to reach desired consistency.
  4. Blueberries: Rinse and drain berries ensuring all leaves from the plant are removed and all berries are in good condition (i.e. no beginnings of mold forming where the berry once connected to the plant). Add to steamer and cook for 5’ish minutes (this softens the skins allowing the berries to process into a smooth texture). Allow to cool slightly, then add to food processer and process, adding liquid to reach desired consistency.
Recipe Notes
  • The final step for each of these foods is:
    • fill freezer safe containers
    • snap lids on tightly, pushing out any air
    • freeze
    • thaw in fridge prior to serving. 
  • There is no firm/hard rule about how much of each fruit/veggie to buy and make. Since you are making a “simply ____” food the amounts will only determine your final yield.
  • Making/freezing individual fruits/veggies will allow you to mix different flavor combinations down the road by simply thawing a couple options and mixing them at the time of serving. For example, once I’m sure we are reaction free with spinach I intend to mix with apples, which I already know he likes and tolerates.
