That said I am now relatively comfortable with our routine and feel a bit less chaotic. I will write up a full post soon about how I have managed with returning to work/our family routine but for now I wanted to share a review that has been long overdue. Callie has been eating solids for around 4 months and is doing really well, you can read more about why and how we weaned her early here.
During her weaning journey we have discovered lots of new products but one I was sent to try out has stood out above the rest. I did a few Facebook live videos when it arrived which I have inserted below but will talk you through our first impressions.
The Tommee Tippee Steamer Blender does what its name would imply, it steams and blends food making it a perfect way to cook baby food in minutes without all of the pots and pans. It is relatively small so takes up minimal room on the worktop and is surprisingly quiet to use (ideal when you don't want to wake a sleeping baby!).
We have made some great recipes in the Steamer Blender since we have had it and also used it to whizz up our baby friendly meals too for Callie to enjoy lump free. I even made an instant berry frozen yogurt which I will share at the end of this post for those hotter days (we have had a fair few this week!).
I love how simple this gadget is to use compared to a lot of other blenders. There aren't lots of fiddly parts to wash up and it comes with two handy pots with lids to store the food in which we use all the time. I actually use the steamer setting to cook food for both the kids dinners and even made Ted some soup in it last week which he loved.
Overall very impressed and if you are looking to wean your little one in the next few months do pop over to the Tommee Tippee website as the Wean Together area has not only a huge list of simple recipes but the chance to win your very own Steamer Blender!
Finally here is our recipe for Instant Berry Frozen Yogurt
- 1 cup of mixed frozen berries
- 1/2 cup of natural yogurt
- 1 teaspoon of honey
- Pop it all in the Steam Blender, programme for 30 seconds and hit the blend button.
- Blend in 10 second intervals until you get the texture you need.
- Pop into a bowl and serve!
