Melon Apricot Dates baby puree’ +6M

A summer treat for the whole family, baby included! This melon, apricot, dates puree/smoothie is simply delicious. Super easy to prepare, you just need a melon and few apricots sweet and in season πŸ˜‰ Suitable for babies starting from +6M

Melons (Galia, Cantalupe, Watermelon….) are a super refreshing and nutritious food for your baby: rich in Vitamin A and C, full of beta carotene (good for the eyes).

Another interesting piece of information is that Melons are NOT included in the β€œdirty dozen” fruit loaded with pesticides…so you can safely buy any variety you like.

Apricots are also a lovely choice for your baby: loaded with Vitamin A and C too. Fresh, seasonal and organic are the best ones.

For the recipe I also added some dates (to give an extra touch of sweetness in a natural way) and some yogurt to make the puree/smoothie a nutritious meal for a baby and an healthy energy treat for older kids and adults.

If you are looking for a dairy free alternative, simply switch the regular yogurt with coconut yogurt or kefir.

The baby puree can be easily stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months.

To store the baby puree I used a 100% silicone Baby Food Freezer Tray with lid by Green Sprouts, you can find it here.
