Spinach pea pear baby food recipe
Spinach, Peas and Pear Puree
I’m back with another homemade baby food recipe. Today I am sharing what I like to call a power puree. This spinach, peas and pear puree packs a healthy dose of nutrients with big flavor. The peas and the ripe pear adds sweetness to the superfood that is spinach. Often times I hear moms complain that their littles do not like anything green. For babies, this is usually not the case. They pretty much eat what we give them. My kids loved all their greens more than any other colored food or food group as babies. Now Miss Z gets to complaining about green except for broccoli. I’ll share about the epic broccoli meltdown next week. Yes, there is such a thing!
Anyway, this spinach peas and pear puree is a great stage 2 blend for your growing baby and if you happen to have a
crazy picky toddler, you can throw this blend into a smoothie with blueberries to change up the color if the color green is on their latest “I don’t like” list.
Once again I used a bunch of frozen organic ingredients. Seriously, switching to some frozen options has saved me money and time. It kills me every time I open the vegetable crisper to find a bag of expensive but now soggy spinach or anything else we spend good money on. Sometimes I just forget it’s in there. Most times not sometimes. I learned a lot of about frozen options and they are just as fresh if not fresher than what we find in the fresh produce section. Don’t get me started on the condition of the fresh produce in the local supermarket near me. It’s considered one of the “budget” branches and that pisses me all the way off.
Anyway, back to the recipe. Make it. LOL. It freezes well and as always, I always reserve and freeze some of the ingredients separately for other puree options during the week.
