At Little Mashies HQ we absolutely love blueberries! When you give your baby blueberries you are feeding them with one of earths most delicious superfoods. Blueberries are rich in nutrients, vitamins, fibre and antioxidants. As a puree they taste sweet and delicious and later when your baby is older they can be given cut in half and then whole as your babies teeth develop.
Blueberries can be used in so many different ways! I’ve created 4 recipe books that contain blueberries. If you are a new parent though you can get my first book in downloadable format absolutely free by going to http://littlemashies.com/free It is full of baby food ideas and has over 50 recipes from the initial phase of starting pureed solids, right through to meal ideas for older babies. When you sign up we will send you an email asking to confirm you are not a robot (yep we do get a lot of spam you wouldn’t believe some of the bots out there these days!)… anyway as soon as you confirm you are a human being my Baby Food ebook (valued at $9.95) will be sent straight to you in digital format so you can just save it or print it off to use when you need new ideas.
150 grams frozen blueberries
1 tablespoon honey (or to taste)
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
100 ml cool water
1 1/4 teaspoon powdered gelatin
250 ml whipping cream
sea salt, to taste
Step 1: Warm blueberries and honey over gentle heat in a medium sized saucepan. Cook the blueberries, stirring occasionally until they thaw and release their juices.
Step 2: Remove from heat and stir in the lemon juice and a pinch of salt.
Step 3: Soften gelatin in the cool water. Once the gelatin has become softened, stir it into the warm blueberry mixture. Set aside to cool.
Step 4: Once the blueberry mixture has cooled to room temperature, puree it in the blender until smooth. Measure out 150 ml of the blueberry puree and reserve the rest.
Step 5: Whisk up the whipping cream with the honey and a pinch of salt to its full volume and gently fold in the 150 ml of blueberry puree.
Step 6: If serving in a glass, layer the remaining blueberry puree with the blueberry mousse and either chill for several hours (for a firmer mousse) or serve immediately. When putting in the Little Mashies pouch, swirl the remaining blueberry puree into the mousse and then spoon the mousse mixture into the pouch, filling about halfway and serve.
