Have be trying to wean my baby girl off breast milk ever since she hit 9 months. But just can't seems to get her to drink formula milk. Tried all sort of brands, even goat's milk and soy milk but she just don't like it. So, tried giving her full cow's milk when she hit 1 year old but she don't seems to like it. So I tried yoghurt and she loves it. Well, don't think I can ever serve her yoghurt for 3 meals a day, so I thought maybe I can try making smoothies for her. Tried making banana smoothie as recommended by some baby food guide but it taste really yucky and my baby girl just spit it out. Also, the problem with banana based smoothies is that it will turn brown quite fast and it really doesn't look too appetising. So I search the net and stumble upon this page of smoothie recipes from nickjr.com. Tried it for my baby girl and wa lah...she gobble up half and cup at one go...yappie... this is a great achieve as I normally only manage to get her to drink the most 1 oz of formula milk each day. Here's the winning recipe:
Peaches and Cream Smoothie
3 frozen peaches or fresh peaches
1/2 cup peach yoghurt (I used 1 cup of yoplait apricot yoghurt instead)
1/4 cup of fresh fullcream milk
1/2 cup of baby apple juice
Blend all ingredient together and served cold. Yummy....
