Chicken Avocado and spinach Puree June 16 2017, 0 Comments
I love this combination of ingredients in a salad or on a sandwich. This baby puree is full of antioxidants and vitamins and has a good portion of Iron which is important for your baby after 6 months. If you are baby led weaning this would be lovely on toast or as a dip especially if your little one isn't yet enjoying the texture of chicken as a finger food.
This is a super nutritious puree ideal for after first tastes.
1/2 large avocado
70g cooked chicken breast or thigh*
1 handful spinach (about 20g)
50ml baby's usual milk or whole milk
remove the avocado from the skin and chop up roughly and place in a small bowl. Roughly chop the chicken and add to the bowl. add the spinach and the milk also to the bowl. Using a stick blender blend the ingredients until smooth.
*This is great to make when you have some chicken leftovers but if you want to start with raw chicken just chop up into 2cm thick slices and add to a small frying pan. Add 1cm depth of water and bring to the boil. Simmer gently with a lid on for around 8-10 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and tender. Leave to cool a little before adding to the other ingredients and blending.
I serve this cool but you can also serve it warm.
Divide the puree between 2 - 3 pouches depending on your baby's appetite.
Keep in the fridge for up to 48 hours or in the freezer for 1 month.
