I need a baby to feed! I’ve been getting loads of emails for homemade baby food, so I decided to start making some. Yesterday, I broke out the fresh avocados and my homemade applesauce for some baby food experimenting. My token neighbor baby taste tester was napping when I made this, so I couldn’t test it out on an actual baby. However, the finished product looked so good that I actually ate it myself!
I have a huge regret! I wish I started feeding my kids avocados from the time they were little. Avocados are an amazing healthy fruit! Did you know that 1/5th of an avocado has only 50 calories but 20 vitamins and minerals! Talk about dense. Avocados are perfect for babies. They contain:
- Vitamin E
- and Iron
- Helps with brain and nervous system development!
So, here is how the baby food went:
- 1 avocado
- 3 tablespoons apple sauce
- 1 tablespoon water
Blend in a blender until smooth and creamy. Store in an airtight container in the fridge. Mine is almost 24 hours old, and there is absolutely no discoloring!
And boy was it creamy! When my neighbor said her baby was sleeping, I did what any food blogger would do, ate it myself! I used it for a sandwich spread on this whole grain wrap, added some chicken, and it was divine!
So, send your babies over for some creamy avocados!!
