Corn, Strawberry and Banana Puree

(Suitable for ages 6 months plus)

 Last week we purchased several cobs of sweet corn at the local farmer’s market, and this morning as I began to think through a new combination/ puree for our son (who turns 7 months today!), I thought the sweet corn would be worth a try for him too! … Sweet corn is one of my favorite sides, and this morning we learned our baby boy loves it too!

 

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • One and a half bananas, three medium-sized strawberries, one cob of sweet corn, and a splash of breastmilk or formula (if needed/ desired for thinning).

 

HOW YOU MAKE THE PUREE:

  • Take one cob of sweet corn; remove the husks and wash the cob. Then, cut off all of the kernels (I use a corn on the cob peeler, but a sharp knife will do the trick!). Once all of the kernels are off the cob, set them aside.

 

  • Next, take three medium sized-sized strawberries; cut the tops/ stems off, and then slices the strawberries into smaller pieces and set aside.

 

  • Lastly, take one and a half bananas; peel and slice. Set aside.

 

  • Steam corn kernels, banana slices and strawberry slices together. I steamed these for 4 minutes’ total. (Please note: I used our Nutribaby Baby Food Processor (by Babymoov) to steam/ blend the food, but you could use a stovetop pot/ steamer and/or food processor of your choice).

 

  • When soft/ steamed blend together, using a small amount of breastmilk or formula to reach desired consistency (if too thick). I only used a very small amount, as our consistency was almost perfect without the addition of the milk.

 

  • Serve to baby using your Avanchy Baby Bamboo Bowl and Training Spoon!

 

  • Freeze extra puree to serve at a later time.

 

This is an excellent-tasting puree (I tried it and it tasted wonderful)!  As I was steaming and blending, my husband even asked what I was making because it smelled so good! … You will feel great about serving your little one this blend of vegetables and fruits!
