Blueberry and pear puree

I’ve now done two versions of this, a raw puree and cooked puree. Bub demolishes both, but I do like the cooked version a bit more as the flavour is more intense, This is great for the whole family too, just chuck some into a serve of Greek yoghurt for a healthy flavoured treat!

Ingredients
1 pear, peeled, cored and cut into chunks (any variety should work, I used beurre bosc for mine)
1 punnet blueberries

Method
– Pop your fruit in the TMX bowl and chop for 5 secs/speed 8.

– Cook for 12 mins/100 degrees/speed 1
– Blend for 3 secs/speed 8.

Watermelon and strawberry puree

I fell prey to the fancy Le Petit Miam baby yoghurt packaging and bought 6 pouches before I realised how much sugar was packed into those babies. So I decided from that point that any yoghurt flavouring bubba consumes in the early stages of her life would be homemade. I now buy Greek yoghurt and pop some fruit puree into the mix. I haven’t titled this post ‘Baby Food’ because it’s actually a fab healthy option for the rest of the family too!

Strawberries are super cheap at the moment, but the problem is that most of them really aren’t that sweet. So I chucked in an eighth of a watermelon too so it wouldn’t be as sour. The resulting mixture is quite runny, but works well with a good thick Greek yoghurt.

Ingredients

1 punnet strawberries, washed, leaves removed
An eighth of a watermelon, skin removed, cut into chunks (any more than this and the mixture gets a bit too runny.

Method
– Throw fruit into your TMX bowl.
– Whizz for 3 seconds/speed 6.
– Pop into individual serve containers and freeze until use (I use $2 ice cube trays from K-Mart!)
