Banana Smoothie

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Kirthika

I came across this recipe in a cookbook. Its great for infants. The beginning of the fifth month is the right age for introducing weaning and supplementary foods (feeding in addition to breast milk) to your baby's diet. Strained soups, juices or mashed rice is the best food to begin with. However remember to introduce only a single fruit or vegetable at the initial stage and gradually accustom your baby to a combination of them. Bananas are a very baby friendly fruit and one of the very few that babies can eat raw. Bananas when combined with curds and orange juice in this velvety concoction provide your baby with energy, carbohydrates, iron, calcium, vitamin A and vitamin C.

this is a great recipe which i am going to try this weekend for my toddler. i was looking for a non-dairy smoothie as her pediatrician said that infants and toddlers should avoid straight cows milk until after 2 yrs of age. ive made them with yogurt but it just comes out tasting like yogurt. this looks great; thanks!
