Two for one! Making baby food? Why not make yourself a smoothie as well. If you are not making baby food, just make this yummy smoothie for you and your family. It is a fast, cool, refreshing and healthy treat on a hot summer day! I made this over Memorial Day for a 1, 3, 4 and 6 year old. They LOVED it! My son who is one had his mixed with some vanilla yogurt but we omitted the honey (see directions below).
- 2 cups frozen mango
- 1 cup diced pineapple
- 1 tbsp local honey for Smoothie ONLY (not for baby)
- Add mango and pineapple to blender and mix well.
- Remove portion for baby and set aside.
- Add honey and mix well.
- Serve smoothie to older children and adults.
This baby food recipe is very high in vitamin C and would be a great addition to yogurt or kale to help your baby absorb the calcium. It is also great to serve with chicken, beef or egg yolk to help absorb the iron!
