Mango mixed with pear and blueberry is such a nice combo. It is not too sweet and is packed with nutrients. Mango is an excellent source of vitamin C and vitamin A. It is easy to digest and mixes well with lots of different foods. Pears are a good source of vitamin C, vitamin K and potassium. They are also a great source of fiber and can be helpful when your baby is constipated. Additionally, pear puree can be soothing to a baby suffering from acid reflux. Blueberries are an excellent source of manganese, vitamin C and vitamin K. Plus, they contain the highest levels of disease-fighting antioxidants of any other fruit or vegetable, and make a great staple in your baby's diet.
This recipe is suitable for babies 7-9 months and up. It is also delicious when frozen into popsicles for toddlers and older children. Additionally, it can be mixed into plain or vanilla yogurt. Always make sure the consistency of your baby's food is one he can handle and before combining foods make sure he has tried each one individually first.
The best part of this recipe? It is a no-cook puree and can be prepared in seconds!
What you'll need:
1 mango - washed, peeled and chopped. It's impossible to remove the pit from the mango as it is woven into the fruit, so just cut the fruit away from the pit.
1 pear - washed, peeled, cored and chopped. Buy organic pears whenever possible as conventional have some of the highest pesticide residues. Bosc, Bartlett and Anjou pears are my favorites.
1 cup of blueberries - washed. Buy organic blueberries whenever possible as conventional have some of the highest pesticide residues. Don't worry about the blueberry skin, it is tender and edible.
*Place ingredients into a food processor and pulse until a mushy mash consistency is achieved. Mushy mash is still smooth, but it is a little thicker and lumpier than a stage 1 puree. Just make sure that any lumps are soft, so as not to pose a choking hazard.
*Serve or store. This puree tastes great cool or at room temperature. It will stay fresh in an airtight container for up to 3 days in the refrigerator or up to 3 months in the freezer.
