Baby Food - Bananas

B man had his first fruit!!!  I'm not a HUGE fan of fruit (yes, I jsut said that) - I'm a veggie when the pediatriction said that it's smart to start with green veggies first - and slowly intro fruits later, since kids typically like the sweet stuff better - I had NO problem waiting to introduce B to fruit! But we are about 3 weeks in to Brody eating solids - and he is eating meals 3x/day - SO I decided to try bananas as his first fruit!  He L-O-V-E-D them!  I knew he would...they are pretty yummy!!  Now we have fruit to go with his cereal in the am!

5 bananas = 22oz

Wash the banana with a mixture of three parts water and one part white vinegar to remove bacteria. Rinse under cool running water, dry, and peel. Discard the peel and the ends of the banana. Slice the rest of the banana into pieces and then cut each piece into quarters.

Puree in a food processor or blender until smooth. (Fresh banana has a light purple-brown color when pureed.) Add water/breastmilk as needed to reach desired consistency.

Refrigerate leftover banana puree for up to 3 days. Freeze leftovers for up to 3 months. Thaw overnight in your refrigerator.
