Pureed Kale and Apple
This is a simple recipe that is packed full of nutrients for your little one. The lemon cuts the bitterness of the kale and the apple ads a nice sweetness.
Chop the Kale 3 Minutes
Wash the kale, dry and lay on a cutting board. Stack the kale on top of each other and roll into a cigar. Slice the kale then chop it into squares. Video
Dice the Apples 2 Minutes
Stand the apple on a cutting board. Slice down vertically next to the core of the apple to create one quarter. Complete three more times until you have four quarters. Lay each quarter flat on the board and slice lengthwise then slice crosswise to create cubes. Video
Halve the Citrus 2 Minutes
Place your lemon, lime, orange or other citrus on the cutting board with the stem facing outwards. Using one hand, hold the citrus fruit with the claw grip and use your knuckle to guide the knife as you slice the citrus fruit in half. A serrated bread knife will work best for cutting through the skin.
Puree the Veggies and Fruit 5 Minutes
Place the Harder and Denser Veggies or Fruit in the blender first with water and start blending. IE: Raw apples are more dense then baked squash. As the harder ingredients start blending slowly add the other softer ingredients to the blender as it is blending. Add more water if the puree is chunky. Be sure to look at the blending puree as you are adding water to gauge how much water to add.
