Once you are done with using Little Mashies as baby food pouches, Little Mashies can be used as reusable yoghurt pouches or reusable smoothie pouches! Here is a healthy smoothie that sneaks in kale, but tastes delicious (scroll down).We often use 5 x 500ml Little Mashies reusable silicone bags that we fill with ingredients for the smoothie. We place 2 in the fridge and the other 3 in the freezer. On Monday and Tuesday morning we simply dump the contents of the reusable bags into the blender, then blend and drink. On Tuesday night we pull out the frozen bag and place it in the fridge overnight so that it is defrosted for Wednesday. On Wednesday night we pull out the bag for Thursday and on Thursday night we pull out the reusable smoothie bag for Friday. This allows us to do all our smoothie prep on one day, but to enjoy delicious smoothies throughout the working week!

Most babies throw tantrums during feeding time, making parents desperately search for alternatives. Mango can be your saviour! It is delicious and babies love it!
