Homemade Avocado & Banana 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.
1 Ripe Avocado, seeded and peeled
1 Ripe Banana, peeled
Step 1: Peel and cut a ripe avocado and banana 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 and banana 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.

Little Mashies reusable food pouch reviews
POSTED BY KYLIE
I purchased these pouches for my 6 month old son. They are so easy to fill, clean and use. They are great for his little hands too. My 5 year old son also loves them and the surprise he gets when he opens them up. We think the design is super cute too. We were lucky enough to get a couple of the paris pouches in our order and my 13 and 10 year old daughters love them also needless to say I will be making another purchase soon. We also love the cookbook that you have available we have made a couple of things from it so far and they have both been a big hit. Thank you so much for such an amazing product and we will definitely be recommending them to others. :)
Kid Friendly Package

I use the Little Mashies to have pre-made snacks, frozen, for grandkids visits, greek yoghurt with fresh berries, coconut-chia-chocolate pudding, or nice thick soups. Healthy home made stuff in a kid-friendly package.
Great Convenient Product

The pouches are such a great convenient product. So easy to use and it means we can take our healthy green smoothies with us on the go without having to pack bulky water bottles!
