This recipe is suitable for babies 7-9 months and up. Make sure the consistency is one your baby can handle. Black Bean Banana Mash also makes a great dip or spread for toddlers and big kids, serve with some toasted pita bread or baked tortilla chips for a yummy after school snack!
What you'll need:
1 large banana
1 can of pre-cooked black beans (I prefer to use pre-cooked black beans to save time, just make sure the can is BPA free, I'm a big fan of Eden Organic)
Pour black beans into a large strainer and rinse under cold running water to remove liquid and excess sodium.
Place black beans into the food processor and add about 3 tablespoons of purified water to help develop a smaooth consistency. Add more if needed.
Pulse until smooth.
Place the banana in a bowl and mash with the back of a fork until smooth and creamy.
Combine black beans and banana in a large bowl and combine well with a spoon.
....store. When stored in Sage Spoonfuls jars, Black Bean Banana Mash can be stored for up to 3 days in the refrigerator and up to 3 months in the freezer.
