Fruit Smoothie with Cereal- for my 10 month old

I must admit, making baby food, feeding your baby and remembering to take a picture is something I still have to master. Amidst all the mess of learning how to self feed and baby food all over the place, with little food covered hands reaching out for every new photography was the last thing on my mind.

Having said that, it was something I tried with my nearly 10 month old daughter for the first time. Though I thought she would have it as a snack, but then she enjoyed it as an early dinner.

SO here goes the quick , simple recipe.


Mango-1 slice
Banana- 1/4th piece
Strawberry- 1
Multi-grain baby cereal ( I use Earth's Best)- 1 tbsp
Yogurt- 1-2 tbsp


Simple add everything to a blender and blend away. This made two 1 oz jars. I do not know if this would freeze well, but it surely can stay in the refrigerator for a couple of days and is a great snack too.

Next time i promise a few pix.

Till then happy eating.

Baby and more

Motherhood is sure not a piece of cake.....hats off to all the mothers in this entire universe.

Though my little one is almost ten months old now, I still don't seem to find time.

Cooking has come down to the basics, getting two meals on the table is what my aim is. Leave alone the fact that it needs to be anything fancy or anything new for that matter.

Blogging..........I feel sad to abandon my blog like this. It was after all my first baby.........

So when I mentioned this to my husbands aunt, she suggested I start blogging about home made baby food. Not a bad idea, but I wonder if baby food makes for good food photography? something to think about.

Well just to keep my blog up and running, and keep all my dear friends and followers still hooked on to foodie by nature, I thought it wont be a bad idea to slip in a few baby food recipes. Till the time I can get back my culinary flare that is.

So on that note look out for a few "yummy for my tummy" gourmet baby foods, as I would call them.

Yummy smoothie recipe coming soon.
