If you’re an all-natural eater, then you’re going to want to feed your family healthy as well. Taking care of yourself and your family through your diet choices is one of the best ways to ensure your overall health. If you also happen to be a new mommy, then you may have been unpleasantly surprised at the lack of healthy food selections for your baby. Instead of feeding your little one food choices that you wouldn’t feed yourself, why not make a homemade version instead? This Cherry, Squash, and Almond Milk Yogurt baby food recipe is a great choice for babies of 10-12 months, or even toddlers as well. Also, be aware if your child has any food allergies that you may need to be aware of before indulging on this recipe. This recipe is a wonderful combination of fruits and veggies that will give your baby a jam-packed meal of nutrients!
What You’ll Need:
- 1 cup of vanilla almond milk yogurt
- 1 cup of roasted butternut squash—roast an entire squash and save the leftovers for another meal
- 10 sweet cherries—washed and pitted (frozen cherries are okay to use when fresh are out of season)
- Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Grab a baking sheet and line it with parchment paper. Cut the butternut squash in half lengthwise, and scoop out and discard the seeds and stringy fibers.
- Take the squash and place it onto the baking sheet with the cut side down. Place the baking sheet into the oven and roast for 35-45 minutes. Once the squash is cooked through, allow it to cool for 5 minutes.
- Remove the skin from the butternut squash and discard. Cut 1 cup of squash into small cubes and save the rest for another meal.
- Place the squash, cherries and yogurt into your food processor or blender. Pulse until smooth. If using frozen cherries, steam for 5 minutes before blending.
