Recipes Using the Beaba Babycook #4

More wonderful ideas for using your Babycook to make baby food and save money!


Yellow Peaches

Peel and de-pit 4 peaches.  Steam in Babycook on level 2.  Remove from steam basket and puree. (I didnt need any liquid to get a good consistency with the peaches.)  Reserve liquid for Baby Juice if desired.

Output: 14 ounces
Homemade Cost: $0.09 per ounce

Gala Apples

Peel and core 2 apples.  Steam in Babycook on level 2.  Puree with liquid as needed.  (I chose to reserve the liquid for Baby Juice and puree with distilled water).

Output: 18 to 20 ounces
Homemade Cost: $0.07 per ounce

Kiwi

Peel 4 kiwi and steam on level 2.  Remove from steam basket and puree.  Add liquid if needed for consistency.  Reserve liquid for Baby Juice if desired.

Output: 8 ounces
Homemade Cost: $0.13 per ounce

Mango

Peal and de-pit 2 mango.  Steam on level 2.  Remove from steam basket and puree.  Add liquid if needed for consistency.  Reserve steam liquid for Baby Juice if desired.

Output: 11 ounces
Homemade Cost: $0.18 per ounce

Cucumber

Peel, de-seed, and chop 1 large cucumber.  Steam on level 2.  Remove from basket and puree.  This can be served cold for a summer treat, however cucumber does not really have many nutrients.

Output: 10 ounces
Homemade Cost: $0.13 per ounce

Zucchini

Peel and chop 2 small to medium zucchini.  Steam on level 2.  Remove from basket and puree.  Add liquid if needed for consistency.

Output: 10 ounces
Homemade Cost: $0.10 per ounce

Cauliflower

Chop 1/4 of a cauliflower head into small florets.  Steam on level 3.  Remove from basket and puree.  Add liquid if needed for consistency.

Output: 8 ounces
Homemade Cost: $0.12 per ounce

Red Bell Pepper

Chop 2 bell peppers and steam on level 2.  Remove from basket and puree.  You will probably need liquid to get a good consistency.  This can be eaten alone (although not as a first food) or mixed with other foods to create complex flavors.

Output: 12 ounces
Homemade Costs: $0.25 per ounce


Ideas for Food Blends: 

Beet and Blueberry: Mix beet and blueberry purees at a 1:1 ratio.  My baby prefers beets when blended.

Genevieve's Smile

I have recently opened a shop on Etsy to sell my homemade crafts.  I named my shop Genevieve's Smile after my daughter.  My shop sells jewelry and hair bows.  I have some items premade and ready to ship and I have others that can be custom ordered.   I hope that you will all support me in my new endeavor.
