  • 1 tsp vanilla

  • 1/2 cup grated beets

If you do not have Squoosh BeetBerry, substitute 2 large ripe mashed bananas, and increase cooking time by 5 min.

Since babies eight to 12 months can’t have this yummy loaf because of the honey, try the Beet-Banana Purée. Microwave beets in a small glass bowl with water for 1 min. Purée in a mini processor with banana until the desired consistency is reached. Serve.
