1 mango, peeled & chopped (about 1 1/2 cups)
1 apple, peeled, cored & chopped (about 1 1/2 cups)
Steam your apple for about 2 minutes until fork tender. Alternatively you can simmer in about 1 teaspoon of water. Use a small pot with the lid on. If you do this reserve water before adding to food processor. I usually just add any remaining (cooled) water to Peanuts cup.
Make sure your mango is nice and ripe. Blend the two together or mash them up.
This puree turns out thin and would be a perfect introductory food when you are ready for combinations. I'm thinking I'll blend it with some homemade oatmeal. I'll get back to you on that recipe.
*A ripe mango will give just a bit with gentle pressure. You can ripen them at room temperature or you can put it in a paper bag... just don't forget about it like some people I know. ~ahem~
Mangoes are packed with potassium, beta-carotene and vitamin A along with many other nutrients.
This puree would also be really great in a shake or mixed with yogurt for you or baby. Come to think of it... mixed with some ice, a splash of lime juice or even cranberry and vodka it'd make a nice cocktail. :)
