Have you heard about the little green pouch?
It’s this wonderful reusable food pouch that is BPA and phthalate free, freezer friendly and dishwasher safe!
If you have a baby or toddler at home, you are well aware of the trend of baby food being packaged in pouches. It is super convenient (you don’t even need a spoon), but it is also very expensive. Many of the brands that make organic baby food run $1.25 – $2 per pouch. That adds up fast! And what if you make your own purees at home? You are stuck putting them in regular food storage containers and spoon feeding, which we all know can be messy.
The little green pouch is the perfect solution for those who make their own baby food, but love the ease and convenience of storing (and freezing if you want) and feeding it from a pouch.
For the most part, Baby Snob has been doing Baby Led Weaning, so we haven’t fed her too many purees. What she does eat every single day though is a green smoothie. She gulps one down each morning as part of her breakfast, or sometimes will eat it in the afternoon for a snack. I couldn’t think of a better use for the little green pouch than these.
Coconut Mango Green Smoothie
1 cup unsweetened coconut milk (not the canned stuff, but the drink kind)
1 small handful of washed, organic baby spinach leaves
1/2 heaping cup of frozen mango chunks
1. Place coconut milk, spinach and banana in a blender and blend on high until all the pieces of spinach are broken down.
2. Add the frozen mango and blend again until smooth.
Yield: Fills 4 little green pouches
I made this and was able to give her one for lunch and stick the other 3 in the freezer (I had a sample pack of 4 pouches) for later in the week (SO much easier! especially since washing the blender is my least favorite kitchen chore.).
I cannot comment on how these do in the dishwasher, as we don’t currently have one, but I can tell you that they are easily cleaned by hand and dry well on a bottle drying rack.
