CACTUS PEAR, MANGO & BANANA (6M+)

Quick note for this one is that some cactus pear still have needles in them. I’m terrified of splinters, so I use tongs to hold them while I cut in half, and then a spoon to scoop out the ‘meat’. Secondly, cactus pear do have little seeds in them. They are small, and do not pose as choking hazards to little ones.

As these ingredients are fully raw, they can also be consumed as a juice (use a nut milk bag or strainer to remove the pulp), ice pops, fruit salad, smoothie and lots more!

Ingredients:
2 bananas
2 cactus pears
1 large mango

Instructions:
Blend everything together and serve

Jackfruit, Banana, Strawberry (6m+)

We had family over today, and guess what they brought us…some delicious jackfruit! Yessss! It’s been a while since I have had it fresh, so digging into this puppy was a blast. We ended up with two large bags full, and it’s pretty hot out…so why not try a new combo? This was a hit with the kids, so I’d like to share it with you! It’s great for little ones from the age of weaning and onward. This batch made about 31.4oz, but keep in mind that the quantity will be give or take, depending on the size of your produce.

Ingredients:
7 pods of fresh Jackfruit
Banana
15-20 Strawberries
Chia seeds
1/2 cup water

Instructions:
Blend ingredients and serve

Papaya & Peach

Not much to say about this combo, as it’s only two ingredients and pretty straight forward. It tastes great, and the peach adds an extra fruity flavour for those with papayas that taste a little on the blander side. Please enjoy!

INGREDIENTS:
1/2 papaya
2 handfuls of frozen peaches

INSTRUCTIONS:
Blend and serve

Bell Pepper, Nectarine & Grapes (No Cook Recipe)

Here’s a quick and easy no cook baby food recipe. I say ‘baby food’ because this website is directed to food ideas of babies, but don’t let that fool you. I am a hug advocate for the idea that if an adult wouldn’t eat it, neither should the child, except for human milk which is of course designed by mother nature to feed baby for the first few months/years of their lives. So while this can be fed to a little child from the stage of weaning and up, please note that I do not hesitate to make this in a larger batch and drink it myself. This is a puree, smoothie, smoothie bowl, ice pop, and everything in between, because it can be served in so many ways. That’s the fun part about raw food.

This combo is full of fibre, water (from the fruits), vitamin A, vitamin C, potassium, and plant based iron. If you’re looking for a new juice to try, simple run these through a juicer to separate the pulp.

INGREDIENTS:
4 nectarines
1 handful of green grapes
1/2 orange bell pepper

INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Wash and cut ingredients
2. Blend and serve

Simple Celery Juice

Are you a celery fan? Celery is loaded with vitamins A, B, C, K, niacin and folate! It’s natural sodium content helps us break down food, which is great for improving gut health (along with a healthy diet). As an adult, I noticed that drinking a glass daily has helped my skin become far smoother. When I say ‘skin’, I don’t just mean on my face, but everywhere! My arms are softer, my legs and back etc…it’s like I’m in a new body when I’ve had a glass every morning for at least three days straight! Keep in mind that this is paired with a dairy free diet, as dairy is known to cause acne, and trigger existing eczema, which my children had as babies.

So here is my go-to for celery juice. I love altering the ingredients by adding extra greens such as swiss chard, kale, spinach and more. If you’re not a fan of the taste of celery, add an extra apple or two. For those with children who do not favour the flavour, add a few apples, and with each serving, as they grow accustom to the taste, reduce the quantity of apples for a higher celery content beverage!

My blender broke a few days ago, so this recipe calls for a nut bag to separate the juice from the pulp. If you have a juicer, simply wash all ingredients and juice them. Personally, I love adding water to my juices for extra hydration. My kids and I don’t always drink enough water in a day, so adding it to juice is just another trick to get some extra hydration in.

Once this recipe is completed, you will have a bag (or juicer) full of pulp. Some people throw it away, and some use it for homemade crackers, smoothies, soups and lots more!

INGREDIENTS:
1/2 stock celery
2 small cucumbers
3 granny smith apples
1 cup filtered water

INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Wash and chop all ingredients
2. Blend all ingredients
3. pour into nut bag
4. squeeze to strain out the juice
5. Serve immediately
