black bean banana lime mash
A creative combo for babies 6 months and up.
The darker the beans, the more antioxidants they contain, so black beans are chock-full!
This recipe is suitable for freezing and is from Jen's cookbook, Growing Up Gourmet.
Makes 2 cups (four 1/2 cup servings)
2 small ripe bananas
1 can pre-cooked black beans
½ avocado, peeled and pitted
2 tsp. fresh lime juice
- Rinse black beans under cold water to remove canning liquid and excess sodium.
- Place beans, bananas, avocado and lime juice in your food processor with 3 tbsp. breast milk, water or formula and puree, adding more liquid in 1 tbsp. increments until desired consistency is reached.
Try a pinch of cilantro for a new flavour.
