Lil Green Baby Food: Banana

I've got friends who act like parenting is a piece of cake. I am not one of those people. But here I am in the kitchen, whipping up my own baby food like some sort of Martha Stewart. It literally takes 30 seconds. I put the good parts of some VERY ripe bananas in the food processor along with about a tablespoon of apple juice and pulsed it. Then I scraped it into my brand new stack n seal, popped it in the fridge, and felt like I had accomplished something.

About 1/2 of a banana with 2 tablespoons of applejuice makes about 1/2 cup of baby food. I can't wait to see if she likes it tomorrow!

Baby food costs about $1/2.5 oz, so I figure I just made half a cup of baby food for about the price of one banana!
By the way, my daughter refused to eat Gerber banana baby food, but she gobbled this up!
