LITTLE MASHIES

Watermelon and Blackberry Striped Gelee

Melon is one of the foods that babies love the most. It is soothing and watery and good to be eaten alone or combined with other fruits. It is rich in beta carotene, vitamin C and calcium. High concentration of beta carotene provides benefits in boosting immune system, improving eyesight, helping in bone development and maintaining water balance.

I created a Baby Food recipe book with over 50 recipes in it to go with my Little Mashies squeeze containers, valued at $9.95 but really it should probably be more because its got a LOT in it! This year I am giving it to my followers in digital format for free (even if they don’t buy Little Mashies). I get so many emails from my followers asking for help with baby food recipes, and the purpose of my business has always been to help so it makes sense to just give away the digital version. So if you follow Little Mashies on Pinterest, Instagram or Facebook (I work on an honesty system) just go to http://littlemashies.com/free and you can access it by popping in your email address. It will then be emailed straight to you. I won’t share your details or sell them or anything crazy like that ☺ xx Talisha

Watermelon and Blackberry Striped Gelee

Watermelon and Blackberry Striped Gelee

Ingredients:
750 ml watermelon juice made
from pureed watermelon chunks
1 1/2 tablespoons powdered gelatin
125 grams blackberries
200 ml blackberry juice, grape
juice or cherry juice
3/4 tablespoon powdered gelatin

Method:
Step 1: Sprinkle gelatin over 250 ml watermelon juice and allow the gelatin to bloom.

Step 2: Gently heat the watermelon juice/gelatin mixture over low heat to dissolve the gelatin.

Step 3: Whisk the rest of the watermelon juice into the gelatin mixture and pour about half into desired molds or Little Mashies pouches. If setting within the Little Mashies pouches only fill each one a quarter full, placing them spout first into a glass so that the zip lock remains upright. Chill about one hour until set, reserving the watermelon mixture at room temperature.

Step 4: Puree blackberries with juice. Sprinkle gelatin over 100 ml blackberry juice and allow the gelatin to bloom.

Step 5: Gently heat the blackberry juice/gelatin mixture over low heat to dissolve the gelatin.

Step 6: Whisk the rest of the blackberry juice into the gelatin mixture and pour over the set watermelon gelee. Chill about one hour until set. If setting inside Little Mashies pouches fill another quarter, leaving the pouches standing upright in their glasses to refrigerate.

Step 7: Pour remaining watermelon mixture over blackberry gelee and chill to set. If setting inside Little Mashies pouches be careful not to over fill. Close zip lock and refrigerate until set.
