Avocado-Banana Baby Food
The potassium-rich banana provides a creamy base for myriad recipes, including this puree that Cooking Channel star Kelsey Nixon began whipping up for her son, Oliver (now 2 years old), when he started solids. Because Ollie was premature, I spent a lot of time trying to help him gain weight. I liked offering him avocado and yogurt, particularly for the good fat and calories. Ages 6 months and up
- 1/2 avocado
- 1 large banana
- 2 tablespoons plain Greek yogurt
1. Place ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.
2. Spoon-feed to baby.
- Extras will stay fresh in an airtight container for 1 day in the fridge or up to 2 weeks in the freezer. (Expect a bit of browning from the avocado - it'll still taste delish!)
