when we went on vacation recently i served fritzy happy baby food pouches, and this combo was his favorite. ever the devoted mama, i decided to recreate it at home…much to his enjoyment.
mango, pear, and spinach puree
- 4 bartlett pears
- 2 mangoes
- 5 oz baby spinach
remove seeds from pears and—retaining the skin—chop into 1″ cubes. if using the beaba, steam the pears on the #2 water setting. if not using a beaba, steam in a pot with a steaming basket or steaming attachment. transfer pears to the bowl of a food processor. peel and cube mango, and add to the food processor. place spinach in a bowl and add about 1/4 cup of water. place in microwave and cook on high for 1 minute, stir through. if the greens aren’t fully wilted, that’s ok, go ahead and add them to the food processor. process everything until it is smooth, transfer to food trays and freeze.
this earned a 5 out of 5 “nums” on the fritz meter. he really likes it. i have to say it’s sweet (because of the fruit) but packs a serious punch in the vitamin category from the spinach. a real winner.
