I'm having a blast trying new and interesting food ideas for Max. I found this recipe in a baby food cookbook and was pleasantly surprised that this turned out to be more like a frozen yogurt than a smoothie. Max loved it, of course (there hasn't been a single thing that I've introduced that he has not inhaled) and it made a little over 2 cups so we have extra in the freezer and fridge. If you have a toddler at home, this is a great snack right out of the freezer...you can tell them it's ice cream! :) Also, if your baby is at an age where he or she is using a sippy cup, let this melt a little after you first make it and put it in a cup...then it truly is a fruit smoothie (this way it's also not so cold for them). Or if it's easier, just use room temperature fruits.
Makes 2 cups
1 frozen banana, sliced into 1/2 slices
1 cup frozen peaches, peeled and sliced
1/2 cup whole-milk yogurt (not low fat or fat free)
1 tablespoon wheat germ
Put bananas, peaches, yogurt and wheat germ in a blender and blend until smooth. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days, or the freezer for up to 3 months.
