For Babies 9-12 Months

Smooth Berries

½ cup blueberries, thawed if frozen

½ cup red berries, such as strawberries or raspberries

(optional, can exchange for 1/2 cup more blueberries)

1 cup plain or vanilla whole milk, organic yogurt

If using fresh strawberries, remove stem and slice in quarters. (If using frozen, thaw berries in refrigerator before using.) Add berries to food processor and puree until smooth. Pass berry puree through sieve to remove excess seeds.

Once seeds are removed and puree is completely smooth, stir in yogurt. Mix until well combined.

You can freeze mixture in ice cube trays, but thaw in refrigerator. (Do not thaw in microwave.) Or, use mixture within two to three days.

 

Sweet Potato Bites

3 medium sweet potatoes

2 Tbsp. olive oil

¼ cup baby rice/oatmeal cereal (use rice cereal for gluten free)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Peel and cut sweet potatoes into ¼ inch cubes. Coat in olive oil and baby cereal. Spread out potatoes on 9×13 pan and cook for about 25-30 minutes.

Once cooked, wait for potatoes to cool on pan. Place entire pan, with potatoes spread out, in the freezer for about an hour. (This keeps the potatoes from sticking to each other in the freezer bag.) Once potatoes are partially frozen, transfer to freezer bag and place in freezer.
