your little person to enjoy.

Passion 4 Juice Super Baby Pudding© 

Remember to be aware of nuts and nut allergies.  


All these dry ingredients can be prepared and stored in advance:

4 tablespoons rolled oats

2 tablespoons almonds (roasted or plain raw, soaked overnight if you have time)

2 tablespoons organic coconut (no preservatives)

2 tablespoons Linseeds

2 tablespoons sunflower seeds

2 tablespoons chia seeds


Wet Ingredients – this will make at least 2 serves

2 small pears (or 1 large pear)

1 apple

1/2 banana

1 date or prune, pitted

1/4 teaspoon mixed spice or cinnamon

2 drops vanilla essence – organic if possible

160 grams full-cream milk of your choice, rice milk is delicious in this recipe

This recipe is designed for a Thermomix but if you have a good high speed blender it will also work well.

Blend the dry Ingredients for 20-30 seconds on high speed until you get a fine flour like powder. This can be kept in an air tight container. You can use 3 – 4 spoons of the dry ingredients at a time. Add wet ingredients and use whatever fruits your baby prefers. Mine loved pears and apples. Sweet potato, blueberries, raspberries, figs, and apricots also work well. If you are using a Thermomix you can cook at 100 degrees for 8 minutes on speed 2. If not you can soften these ingredients in a pan or blend until smooth. You can serve straight away and also refrigerate for the following day.
You can add more cool water or milk into the individual serving dish if it is too hot or thick. Alternatively you can try adding some organic yoghurt (5am natural yoghurt is my favourite).
