Thermomix Baby Food Recipes

NOTE: This Page is still a “draft”. I haven’t finished all the recipes yet but there are a lot of ideas here, so I thought it might be helpful for people who want to make some baby food in their Thermomix.

If you want any of these recipes, send me an email and I will get it to you ASAP.

Make Your Own Baby Food

I have always wanted to make my own baby food. That is why I really, really, really wanted a Thermomix! Creating food from scratch is just soooooo much easier if you have a Thermomix. I couldn’t afford a new TM5, so I became a Thermomix Consultant to earn my machine. I did demos while I was pregnant and I had a Thermomix in my kitchen by the time my baby was ready to start eating solids. Yay!

However, you don’t need to have a Thermomix to make baby food. It just takes longer and you use more cooking equipment. You can easily find traditional cooking recipes around the internet for the list of baby food ideas that I have mentioned below. But please note that the recipes that I share are mainly Thermomix recipes.

Ready To Eat / Soft Foods

Here is a list of foods which you can pull out of the fridge really quickly and feed your baby without too much prep or hassle. Always have one or two of these items on hand for those moments when you are too busy to think about cooking.

  • Yoghurt – Make it from scratch using the TM5 automated recipe.
  • Banana – Chop it up in to finger sized pieces or mash it with a fork.
  • Mango – Avoid the skin of the mango. Cut the flesh out in to small finger sized pieces, let your baby suck on the seed or mash it with a fork.
  • Papaya or Paw Paw – Peel the skin of the paw paw. Cut the flesh out in to small finger sized pieces or mash it with a fork.
  • Avocado – It is easy to ask for this one if you are out and about having breakfast at a restaurant. Scoop the flesh out of the skin and discard the seed. Cut in to finger sized pieces or mash with a fork.
  • Cucumber – Peel the skin (optional) and cut in to finger sized slices. Keep the cucumber fingers in an air tight container in the fridge and on hand for snacks throughout the day.

Each of these foods easy to store in your fridge at home or to take with you while out and about. You can cut them up, mash with a fork or if you are doing BLW then you can pre-load the spoon or offer finger sized pieces and let your baby feed him/herself.

If you have pre-chopped the fruit and vegetables, keep them in an air tight container which is made from BPA free plastic or glass.

Breakfast

  • Rice Cereal – Find this recipe on your TM5 BCB Chip or check out my blog post about making your own Baby Rice Cereal in Your Thermomix.
  • Brown Rice Cereal – adapt this recipe from the Thermomix Baby Rice Cereal Recipe.
  • Oat Cereal – adapt this recipe from the Thermomix Baby Rice Cereal Recipe or check out Peta’s recipe from TRTLMT.
  • Porridge – The porridge recipe in the BCB serves 6 portions. I find that this is too much for me and my baby each morning. So I use this Basic Porridge Recipe instead.

Cook From Scratch

  • Stock – I don’t use the EDC or BCB Vegetable stock in any of the food that I plan to give my baby. It has far too much salt. Instead, I use the Chicken Stock from Louise Fulton Keats Baby & Toddler Book. That recipe only has 1 teaspoon of salt.
  • Yoghurt
  • Coconut Yoghurt (Dairy Free)
  • Hummus
  • Rice Cereal
  • Porridge
  • Pancakes
  • Custard
  • Teething Rusks (see below)
  • Veggie Sticks

Teething Rusks

  • Baby Rice Rusks – This recipe is from the RC. I’m still yet to try them but they have a 5 start rating so it’s on my “to cook” list.
  • Apple Spelt Rusks – The recipe is on the RC. I have tried it once before. They taste really good. (I added some apricot to mine as well). However I found that these rusks didn’t harden up enough and they made a bit of a mess. Definitely a good option if you are looking for an alternative rusk (or biscuit) recipe that is gluten free.
  • Mango & Watermelon
