Avocado and Pear Puree

My eight month old gives her approval to new foods by frantically kicking her legs with every bite. This recipe definitely got her legs going! Since avocado turns brown very quickly after exposure to air, this recipe should be prepared immediately before serving. Another option to store for a longer period of time is to mix in a little lemon juice and cover tightly with plastic wrap. This recipe is from Food Network – easy to prepare, nutritious and a big winner!

Ingredients

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 ripe pear

Instructions

  1. Wash, peel, core pear
  2. Cut pear into cubes
  3. Very ripe pears don’t require steaming, if pear is very ripe, skip to step 5
  4. Steam cubed pear for about 15 minutes on LOW (save excess water from pears to thin puree if necessary)
  5. Mash pear with a fork or transfer to blender or food mill (processor)
  6. Wash, peel and remove pit from avocado
  7. Cut  avocado into cubes
  8. Combine avocado and pear in blender
  9. Blend or process until desired consistency is reached (may need to add water or excess water from steaming)
  10. Serve immediately OR
  11. Combine with a little lemon juice, about 1/2 to 1 tablespoon to prevent browning
  12. Pour into ice cube trays, cover tightly with plastic wrap and freeze overnight
