Baby Food Prep

by HEAB on July 8, 2010

I’ve been blending it up around here. Last night for dinner, I made Berlin’s Whimsy’s Chilled Cucumber & Herb Soup. Into the Vita-Mix went 2 cups plain goat milk yogurt, 1 large sliced cucumber, 1/2 cup water, juice from 1/2 a lemon, 1 clove garlic, 1/4 cup fresh parsley, 2 TBSP of dill, 3 scallions, and 1/2 tsp Celtic sea salt.


It made this much soup…


I let it chill all day in the fridge, and CD and I ate it for dinner with freshly ground black pepper and crumbled goat cheese.


So refreshing – the perfect soup for summer!

Inspired by one of my favorite Katie’s, I made butterscotch pudding for breakfast this morning. ‘Twas yummy.


Vita-Mix, I love you!

Into my beloved blender went 1 can of pureed butternut squash, a splash of almond milk (1/4 cup?), and a melted banana (inspired by my other favorite Katie). I then blended on high until warm. So creamy and good! I’m sure you can do this in any blender, or you can mix by hand. Just stir really fast. :) I would love to try it with pumpkin, but I still can’t find any in Nashville. To all my local readers, please email me if you see canned pumpkin anywhere!

I thought this would be a great recipe to feed the HEABlet someday as I don’t plan on ever buying baby food. Like Averie told me not too long ago, I own a fork and a Vita-Mix. What more do I need?

What have you blended up lately?
