Organic Banana Yogurt Treat - Organic Baby Food Recipes - 8 months Baby Purees

Stonyfield's yo baby yogurt
Organic Baby Yogurt by Stoneyfield.
Nowadays it's easy to find organic varieties of the same food you eat without all the harmful pesticides and chemicals.  And you can easily convert any of your favorite recipes for organic by simply purchasing organic ingredients.

My kids loved Stoneyfield's Organic Baby Yogurt (Yo Baby), but the consistency was a little runnier than they liked when they started eating chunkier textures.  So, I tried experimenting with adding diced fruit pieces and other ingredients to beef up the texture a bit.  The banana in this recipe adds a little freshness to the mix while the graham crackers gives them good chewing practice.

For babies 8 months and up:

Makes 2 servings:


4 ounces plain or vanilla organic whole-fat baby yogurt
1/2 ripe organic banana (sliced)
Juice from 1/2 lemon
4 tablespoons organic graham crackers (crushed)

Coat the banana slices with lemon juice to prevent them from browning.  Cut the slices into small pieces with a knife.  Combine banana and yogurt together.  Fold in crackers.  Serve.

**Featured Amazon.com Editorial Review for 201 Organic Baby Purees**

Because blueberries have amazing antioxidant power, try to incorporate them into your purees as much as you can. If your blueberries are a little too tart, make sure your banana is super ripe to balance things out. Coupled with yogurt's calcium, protein, phosphorus, and probiotics, this power puree is a perfectly sweet way to give your baby superfoods.  Combine any leftovers with Lite Whipped topping and enjoy for yourself!

1/4 cup frozen organic blueberries
1 small, ripe organic banana (with lots of brown spots)
4 ounces whole fat plain or vanilla-flavored organic yogurt for babies

Blend blueberries and banana. Puree until smooth. Swirl together puree and yogurt with a spoon. Serve immediately. Refrigerate any leftovers for up to 3 days.
