    Kiwi Banana Tango


    1 ripe kiwi – peeled & diced
    1/2 ripe banana – peeled
    1/2 ripe mango – peeled & diced


    Mash all fruits together and then blend or puree as needed. Make it Creamy Kiwi Banana Tango by adding yogurt and/or cereal.

  3. Carol says:

    Our family has a real thing for Sweet Potatoes, so this is what I did for my four babies during the years:

    Scrub about 3 or 4 sweet potatoes and bake at 450 degrees F. for 40 to 50 minutes, testing with a fork for desired softness. Allow to cool. Peel, then out in food processor, adding vegetable cooking juices, milk, or a bit of apple juice.

    I also suggest you can use a potato masher to have it more textured, or a Magic Bullet! lol.

  4. Fruit Yogurt Cups


    1/3 cup mixed fruit (bananas, peaches, strawberries, kiwi)
    2 tsp frozen apple juice concentrate, thawed
    1/2 tsp vanilla OR almond extract
    1/3 cup plain yogurt


    Chop or puree fruit to desired consistency.
    Add fruit and flavorings to the yogurt, stir to combine.

    Serve, or cover and store in the refridgerator until later (for about 3 or 4 hours)

    Makes enough for 2 small children.

  5. kaylen says:

    Mushy Apples (aka applesauce)

    Chop about 4 apples (peeled and cored)

    Boil in a saucepan with an inch of water.
    Once it comes to a boil, lower the heat and simmer until the chunks are semi-soft.

    Drain and toss with a tiny bit of ground cinnamon.

    If you stop cooking them just before they are too soft, they can be eaten with fingers. If they are very soft, you can just mix up a little bit and eat with a spoon.

  6. I found this recipe on the web, I haven’t made it but I love that it involved broccoli. I don’t like the texture of broccoli, but I like the taste so this is adult friendly too LOL

    1 Large Potato, peeled and cubed
    1 Cup Broccoli, chopped
    2 Tbsp Cheddar Cheese (I used white cheddar cheese)

    1. Place the potato cubes in a steamer pot over boiling water and cook for 6 minutes.
    2. Add the broccoli and steam for an additional 4 minutes or until vegetables are fork tender.
    3. Place all the ingredients in a food processor and puree.
    4. Serve.

    1 Leftover chicken breast (preferably without strong seasonings) or steam some chicken breast and add a dash of garlic powder)

    Puree it all up and keep the chicken at a 3/4 ratio to 1/4 veggie ratio.

    Pork Roast with All the Trimmings

    This is great for when baby is ready for meat in their diet. Feeds the whole family.

    Cook a Pork Roast in crock pot to the point of falling apart. I season with a dry soup mix. Before the roast is done add baby carrots and unpeeled red potatoes to crock pot. When everything is done take out some roast, carrots and potato and puree everything together with a little of the juice from the roast. One pot meal to feed the entire family. Easy to cook and clean up means more time for family at the end of the day.

    Remember if you are leaving the potatoes unpeeled for the extra nutrients to use red potatoes, otherwise make sure they are peeled.

  20. Stephanie R says:

    I love making my daughter’s baby food, and I would love to make it with a Magic Bullet!!! Here’s a really simple recipe that packs in the vitamins and tastes good!

    Sweet Potato Pumpkin Puree

    1 sweet potato (the dark orange are best, but any will do)
    1 small pumpkin (pie pumpkin would be best!)
    apple juice (if desired)
    cinnamon (if desired)

    1. wash and PEEL the sweet potato (extra protection from
    pesticides and such!)
    2. Cut into pieces
    3. wash and cut the pumpkin into large chunks
    4. Use a steamer or a large pan to steam the sweet potato and
    5. Put the steamed veggies into a blender
    6. Add some of the water you steamed them in so that you retain
    as many vitamins as possible (can add apple juice in
    addition to the water, if desired)
    7. Blend until very smooth
    8. Cool and serve!

    You can sprinkle a bit of cinnamon in this if you want, but I prefer not to introduce that to my baby yet. My daughter loves this recipe as is!!!

  21. Heather S says:

    We puree bananas and strawberries

  22. marge mckoen says:

    I would love a magic bullet ,taking care of my 83 year old mother with alzheimers I puree alot of her food.

  23. 1/2 of a ripe pear, peeled, cored and diced
    1/2 cup of fresh blueberries (stems removed)
    1 small apple (Granny Smiths are nice but any sweet apple would do)

    Put all of the ingredients in a small saucepan. Use just enough water to cover the fruits and simmer for about 5 minutes or until the fruits are tender and soft. Drain the water then put the fruits in a blender and puree until smooth.

    Thank you for a great giveaway opportunity. ♥

  29. Katie S says:

    My niece love pear puree. We use a regular old blender to make it, but I’m sure a magic bullet would make it better!

    Take a fruit (any kind, depending on baby’s taste), peel it, remove core and seeds.

    Cut into blender-friendly pieces.

    Use the blender to puree it.

    Heat the cup in a microwave to room temperature if necessary.

    Easy and a hit with babies!

  30. Suzanne K says:

    I would bake a cored apple and a zucchini in the microwave until soft and them puree them together with a tiny bit of cinnamon. Applesauce with a bit of green veggie, and lots of taste!

    1/2 milk

  33. Vicki Andrew says:

    Beets – Basic Purée

    1 bunch of fresh beets, golden beats have a milder flavor

    1. Wash then peel the beets (be sure to cut off the tops.) and then cut the beets into small chunks
    2. Place chunks into a steamer pan with just enough water visible through the steamer basket. You may also boil them in a scant amount of water if you prefer.
    3. Steam until tender
    4. Do not reserve any left over water to use for thinning out the beets as Nitrates may seep into the cooking water
    5. Place into Magic Bullet begin pureeing.
    6. Add water as necessary to achieve a smooth, thin consistency.

    You can cook the greens and serve like spinage. Also add some apple or pear to sweeten the beets

  35. Lolli says:

    It’s been a little while since my “babies” were eating baby food. They LOVED their pureed fruits and sweet potatoes, as well as some fruity oatmeal:

    Apple oatmeal

    3/4 cup water
    1/4 cup apple juice
    1 apple, peeled, cored and diced
    1/2 cup rolled oats
    a pinch of nutmeg
    1/2 cup (4 fl oz) formula (or more water or milk)

    Pour the water and juice into a saucepan and bring to the boil.
    Add the diced apple then sprinkle in the rolled oats, stirring well.
    Return the mixture to the boil, then reduce the heat to a gentle simmer.
    Add the nutmeg and cook until thick (10-15 mins).

    For younger babies, or if your baby likes a smoother oatmeal (versus lumpy), puree briefly in the blender. Apples can also be pureed before adding to the oatmeal.

  36. Carrots with some peas.
    Bananas with mango

  37. Kristin Kneupper says:

    I’d have to say organic brown rice. I grind the rice before cooking (1/4 c) and then add it to 1 C water. Bring it to a boil and then simmer and stir for 10 minutes. Super simple and very good for you!

    Triple Berry Smoothie

    Since I needed plenty of study time while I was in nursing school and raising wee ones, I would make a huge batch of this chicken/veggie/rice soup, puree it, fill ice cube trays to freeze it, then plop them out as I needed them to save gobs of time. My babies loved it:

    1 whole chicken
    1 onion, in chunks
    1 head garlic
    1 bay leaf
    4 medium carrots
    4 medium potatoes
    2 stalks celery

    Place all ingredients into a crockpot, set on high. Cook for 4-5 hours. Cool. Take out chicken to debone and shred. Take out bay leaf and discard. Remove remaining ingredients and add to chicken. Puree all together, pour into flexible ice cube trays to freeze. Healthy, made from scratch, and my girls gobbled it up.

    my slightly older baby loves our homemade smoothies.

    We always use a banana, yogurt (we love YoBaby), and ice.
    For the liquid we vary milk, or 100% apple juice or orange juice.
    For the additional fruit we use whatever is in season – strawberries, kiwi, melon, peaches (canned ones are great), peeled apple or pear (the skin makes it too texturized, as do blueberries).

    Blend and enjoy!
    Would love to win this giveaway – thanks!

    I don’t really make any baby foods. I will puree different fruits for my daughter, but I don’t do anything special to them.

  74. Deal Daddy says:

    This recipe was one of my son’s favorite dinner food.

    1 Sweet Potato
    1 Chicken Breast
    Chicken Stock to cover

    Peel and cube Sweet Potato. Cube Chicken Breast. Place both items in a pan and cover with Chicken Stock. Bring to a boil and simmer until Sweet Potatoes are tender and Chicken Breast is fully cooked.

    Then blend.

    Let cool before serving. You can freeze the excess.

  75. Tiny Tummy Thanksgiving:

    Even little ones love to celebrate thanksgiving. Unfortunately they’re often too small to dig into the food on the grown-ups table. This baby food recipe blends the flavors of Thanksgiving in an easy to swallow style.

    1. Thoroughly wash a sweet potato. Puncture the potato with a fork, wrap, and microwave 5-6 minutes. Potato should be tender. The sweet potato can also be baked if you so choose.

    2. Peel the potato. (The skin should pull away from the sweet potato easily.)

    3. Cute the sweet potato into cubes.

    4. Place diced sweet potato into Magic Bullet Express.

    4. Add 2-4 ounces of apple juice (or your child’s favorite – pear also works well).

    5. Puree the sweet potato in your Magic Bullet Express until it is the consistency of smooth applesauce.

    6. Mix in some oatmeal cereal or pasteurized vanilla yogurt until desired consistency is reached.

    Dish it out and enjoy!

    Makes 2-3 Servings.

  76. Take 1/2 banana, 1/2 apple and puree until smooth. Add to baby oatmeal or feed your baby the mixture alone as his/her fruit. You can add a baby carrot to the apple and banana mixture to puree but, please make sure that your child doesn’t have any allergies to carrots.

    Thank you for the giveaway!

    My son enjoyed melon, yogurt, and fruit juice pureed together. Delicious, sweet, and good for you!

  94. I used to blend together cooked carrots, slightly cooked raisins, and a bit of apple sauce. She loved it.

    It would be wonderful to win the Magic Bullet. I kind find so many uses for one today. Thanks for the chance.
