Bananas have a great texture that serves as a great food for babies to transition into solid foods. There are many ways to feed bananas to your little one, and here’s a great new recipe to keep things interesting!
Homemade Baby Food Recipes showed us this great cinnamon, banana, and yogurt recipe that we wouldn’t mind trying ourselves!
You can introduce this recipe to your baby at 6-8 months or when he or she begins to try textured foods. If you don’t want to feed your baby maple syrup, you can simply leave it out. The banana releases a little sweet liquid when heated and can be drizzled over the yogurt. Enjoy!
Warm Spiced Banana and Yogurt Dessert
2 tbsp plain, natural yogurt
about 1/4 medium, ripe banana
2 tsp pure maple syrup
pinch cinnamon to taste
Chop the banana into tiny, bite-sized pieces.
Place the banana in a small saucepan with the maple syrup, and add as much cinnamon as your baby will enjoy.
Warm over a VERY low heat, stirring constantly, until the banana is very warm and soft (around 4 to 5 mins).
Spoon the yogurt into baby’s serving bowl and drizzle the banana mixture over the top.
