Here are two new recipes that Grayson is currently in love with: Mango Applesauce and Berries with Oatmeal!
For Mangos with Applesauce:
5 apples (I use Macintosh or Gala)
Pinch of cinnamon, if your baby likes spices
Dice apples and place in a saucepan with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil and cook until the apples are tender. Cut off the heat. Dice your mango and place into the pot with the apples for a few minutes to soften. Drain fruit and mash with a potato masher, or puree to the consistency your baby likes. Place in ice cube trays to freeze and serve when needed.
For Berries with Oatmeal:
3 Apples ( I used Gala)
1 package of blueberries
1 package of rasberries
(you can use any other berries you like, but these were in season.)
Dice apples and place in a saucepan with enough water to cover and bring to a boil. In a separate saucepan, add blueberries and rasberries with a small amount of water. Cook on medium heat until berries burst. Once apples are tender, drain and add to the berry mixture. Mash or puree the mixture until smooth. It will likely be soupy, so add the oats until it thickens up to the consistency that is right for your baby. Freeze in ice cube trays for later! I know it's called "Berries with Oatmeal" but I wanted to make a large batch and didn't want it to get too tart, so the apples are mostly for volume and to tone down the flavors a bit!
