Peanut Post: No Cook Baby Food (Papaya & Banana)

Some of my favorite baby food meals are the simple no cook recipes that we can just mash and serve. Besides being fast and simple, these foods are also convenient to travel with since they don't require refrigeration. This is one of our newest additions to our super quick 'n easy baby food arsenal. Like bananas and avocado, papaya can be given to baby without cooking it first. It mashes easily and contains a lot of water, so it also mixes well with baby cereal. Papaya and bananas also make for a tasty combination that can be thrown together in a matter of minutes. Here's how Mama makes it:

No Cook Papaya & Banana Baby Food

-1 large ripe papaya
-2 ripe bananas
Daddy ate half of this papaya,
so I used 1/2 papaya & 1 banana


1. Cut the papaya in half. Scoop out seeds and discard.

2. Peel bananas and mash with a fork until smooth (or leave a few chunks for older babies).

3. Scoop out flesh of papaya and add to the mashed banana. Mash with fork until smooth. Split into serving sizes, depending on how much your baby is eating. (this 1/2 papaya and 1 banana made 3 servings for Peanut at 7 mos).

so pretty!
