Anything you can whip up in a hurry to feed your baby is a big tick in our book, and using a NutriBullet or blender can help make the task easy. If you’ve introduced solids to your baby and are looking for easy, baby-safe recipes using a NutriBullet, look no further.

Whether you’re after some tasty smoothies you can blitz up in seconds, some veggie purees or even pancake mix, these recipes are quick and easy to make in your NutriBullet.

Note: always chat to your GP if you have questions about introducing common allergens. You can read more about food allergies on Raising Children Network. Adjust recipes based on your child’s allergens.

Oat and banana smoothie

This is like a bowl of porridge in smoothie form. Oats fill the belly, bananas are full of potassium, chia seeds have iron and it’s a great recipe to introduce cinnamon (if all other allergens have already been introduced).

  • 2 frozen bananas (you can also use fresh, add half a cup of ice if doing so)
  • ¼ cup of quick oats
  • ¾  cup of milk
  • 2 tsp chia seeds
  • ½ tsp cinnamon

Put all ingredients into the NutriBullet and blend until smooth. You should have a nice, thick consistency that you can spoon the smoothie to feed your baby.

Recipe notes:

  • Dairy allergy? Substitute milk for plant based milk.
  • You could replace one banana with a cup of frozen berries for a berry nice twist.
  • Want the mixture thinner? Add more milk.

Vegetable puree

Sure, most kids love eating fruit, but how do you get them to eat veggies? With a delicious vegetable puree. By adding in a little fruit, the puree is more palatable for little mouths, while sticking packing a big nutritious punch. This recipe calls for veggies to be steamed first, and then it’s as easy as whizzing all the ingredients together.


  • 2 cups chopped sweet potato
  • ½ cup frozen peas
  • 1 cup chopped apple
  • 1 cup chopped carrot
  • Milk or breastmilk

Add the sweet potato to a steamer and steam for five minutes. Add the chopped carrot and apple, steam for another 10 minutes. Add the frozen peas and steam for another 5 minutes. Let ingredients cool, then empty into your Nutribullet. If the mixture is too thick, thin it out with a little bit of milk or breastmilk. Always check the temperature of the mixture before feeding to your baby.

Recipe notes

  • Once you’ve made this, play around with the ingredients and try different vegetable combinations. Because sweet potato and carrot are ‘sweeter’ vegetables, they’re perfect as a base for introducing more bitter vegetables, like broccoli.
