If you have read any of my other baby food recipes, then this one will look very familiar. Good baby food does not need a lot of ingredients. Just fresh fruits or vegetables, and water.
The thing about bananas is that they brown pretty quickly, so pureéd bananas are best if served right away.
I began by cutting up one small banana and placing it in the blender with a very little amount of water. How much water you use depends on the consistency that you would like for your baby, so I recommend starting with just a little bit and adding more if necessary. I pushed the button on the blender for purée and, voilà!
My girls both ate about a whole small banana. If you are wondering if this is cost-effective for your budget, I believe it is. I bought four bananas for $.89, and that was from a more expensive market that I don’t visit often. That puts each one-banana meal at a cost of about $.23 (at the most), and the cheapest I’ve been able to find jarred baby food was $.50 a jar. So it’s a little messier, but saves a few pennies.
