{Tiny Tot Tuesdays} Homemade Organic Baby Bananas

Ingredients

  • 1 ripe organic banana

Wash banana under cold water to remove bacteria.


Peel the banana and remove all the lose strings. Mash the banana well with a fork until there are no visible lumps (no need to add water/milk--the banana will become runny the more you mash it).


If your baby doesn't like texture, throw the banana in a food processor and pulse until smooth.


If your baby does not like bananas plain, add a little breast milk or formula to the banana puree to add a flavor they already know.


Mashed bananas don't store very well, so I recommend only breaking off and mashing the amount your baby is going to eat at that specific time. 


To save the rest of the un-mashed banana, wrap the banana in plastic and leave at room temperature for up to one day. To freeze, place the banana in a ziplock bag and put in the freezer for up to 1 month.


*Consult with your pediatrician before feeding your baby solid foods and to see what amount/type of food you should give your child.
