Tropical Fruit Puree

tropical-fruit-puree.jpg

I realized I haven't done a new puree recipe for a while so I've been experimenting lately with a few new ideas. When Kenya was a baby, I used to love giving him all kinds of different purees like mango, kiwi and papaya. He was always game for all of them, so I find it funny that I never thought about blending them together. What a mistake! I don't know if you could find a baby food packed with more nutrition than this tropical fruit puree. It's great to mix with plain yogurt, oatmeal or just eat on its own.

Mangoes are considered a "super fruit" because they're packed with vitamin C, dietary fiber and more. Kiwis are also a rich source of vitamin C, potassium (by weight, they have almost as much as bananas), vitamin A and E. Papayas, in addition to being rich in vitamins, promote good digestive health which can be incredibly important for babies little tummies.

I like to buy these fruits and cut them up for the puree when they're soft and ripe. The day I made this puree my husband and Kenya wanted dessert after dinner, so I pulled it out. My husband looked at me like I was crazy for offering him "baby food" for dessert. That didn't last long. He and Kenya devoured every last bite of it as if it were a bowl of ice cream.
