Adventures in Babyfood

Tate is almost 4 months now and still about 2 months away from solids (which in baby food world means purees). But avocados were on sale at the grocery store last week and I planned to prepare and freeze food in advance anyway. So--- I busted out the Baby Bullet (a gift from my sweet mother-in-law) and it was so easy!

Avocado and bananas are the two purees (well the 2 I know of) you can make for baby without having to cook anything. So we won't get the Tate Taste Test for a few more months but this Mama certainly has no complaints about the process.

Recipe for Avocado Puree from Baby Bullet cookbook:
1 Avocado
1/4 Cup Water

Cut Avocado down the middle and remove pit. Use spoon to scoop out avocado into Baby Bullet (or other food processor) add water and puree.

I then scooped it into the silicone tray (you can also use silicone ice cube tray, there are even some that have lids) and froze. Once completely frozen you can "pop" out the frozen baby food and store in freezer bags. Note: The avocado will oxidize and turn brown but it will still taste the same and baby won't care.
