Because Gerber Is Gross....take 3

In continuation of our "Because Gerber is Gross" series...I have a new recipe for you!! The best part about this one is you really WILL have to keep yourself from eating it all!

With the summer heat blasting us every day, I wanted to make something cool and fun for Gray to enjoy. I decided to make her a baby food that I'm calling "Tropical Smoothie." I whipped it up last night and even though I don't like bananas, I found myself shoveling spoonfuls into my mouth instead of into the ice-cube trays!

Here's what you need:
1 large pineapple
2 bananas
3 nectarines
1 small container of "baby" yogurt. I use Stoneyfield Organic in Vanilla.

Tropical Fruit Smoothie

Start by peeling and slicing your pineapple. Dice it if you'll be using a food processor so it will fit.
I didn't use all of the pinapple....I saved a few slices for me and Hubby!

Peel your nectarines and place them in a large bowl with the pineapple. I use a "nut chopper" to dice up all of my fruit, but you can use anything, including a food processor to mash it up to the consistency that's right for your baby.

Once you have a nice consistency, slice up your banana and add it to the bowl. Give them a good mash to mix them in. Then add the yogurt and stir to mix.

Spoon into ice cube trays, freeze, and let your baby enjoy!

For the adult "smoothie" version, just throw the fruit and yogurt into the blender!! Yummmmmm
