Homemade Avocado Baby Puree Recipe for reusable food pouches by Little Mashies
Why is avocado a great baby food choice for reusable food pouches?
As soon as your baby is 4-6 months old you can give her avocado. It is smooth and creamy, rich in good fats, carbohydrates and proteins. It has everything that is important for good growth and development of the central nervous system and brain. We absolutely LOVE avocado in our house! We mash it, freeze it and put it into smoothies. We send it to daycare inside Little Mashies containers as a dip (the Mashies stop it from going brown), we make our own guacamole dip to use with vegetables, we use it on spicy food to calm it down. Gosh honestly I could go on and on about how great avocado is not only as a baby food but also as a healthy kids snack.
2 Ripe Avocado (400g), peeled and seeded
Step 1: Peel and cut a ripe avocado into small pieces
Step 2: Mash with a fork and add a little breast milk or formula to get a smooth consistency. You may also purée the avocado in a food processor or blender such as Beaba Baby Cook or the Baby Bullet system.
Step 3: If preparing baby food in bulk freeze the puree into ice-cube trays or straight into Little Mashies reusable food pouches.
Step 4: If preparing your baby food recipe in bulk freeze the puree into ice-cube trays or spoon it straight into Little Mashies reusable food pouches and then store them in the fridge or freezer. For instructions on how to fill a refillable pouch you can read our blog. For info on how long to freeze specific baby foods for we have the information here.
Step 5: Label and date your homemade pouches so that you know when to use the puree by. There is a space on the back of the Little Mashies yoghurt and baby food pouches so that you can write all the details.
Step 6: To clean your reusable food pouches you can check out our Little Mashies video here. Little Mashies are see through when held towards light, so it is very easy to see that all of the food is washed out. Because of the specifically designed curved shape, all of the food washes straight out when held upside down under a tap. Little Mashies can also be used in the dishwasher and steam sterilisers, and are BPA free, Phthalate Free, and PVC free.

Love That I can Freeze and Travel With Them
POSTED BY ARACELY
Love that I cam make them the healthiest purees and yogurts. I can freeze and travel with them. I only wish there was a slightly larger size which would be best for my toddler. Would like to fit in a little more for him.
I loved Using These
POSTED BY A CUSTOMER
I bought these with my newborn in mind for when she starts solids, however, I have loved using them for the school/preschool-aged siblings, and they look forward to having yoghurt or custard or rice pudding in them. I'm looking forward to trying more recipes for the big kids. They clean and dry well, and the snap closure is great! - even the 4 year old can't open them.

I love this product! My 4 and 1 year old daughters love using them everyday, and I can put so many different healthy foods in there without them knowing! Thank you thank you thank you.
