Adventures in Baby Purees: Pumpkin & Banana


pictures from age 9 months

Sweet & earthy, pumpkin provides a beautiful groundedness to the sweetness of overripe bananas. This recipe makes perfect use of browning bananas that get too mushy or soft to eat, otherwise.  I always keep a can of pureed pumpkin in my pantry.  That makes this recipe so low-maintenance and one of the reasons I love it so much and have been making on the regular since he’s started solids. And it’s a welcome food when he’s not feeling well or recovering, a delicate flavor with both ingredients being gentle and restorative to the digestive system.Pumpkins are loaded with potassium, fiber, beta carotene, & iron. One hiccup – this one can’t be frozen. But he almost always eats this faster than I can keep it around anyway!
