I had a gift card to Target (love that store.) that I had gotten for my baby shower. I have been holding onto it until the time was right and it just so happened it was time. I went and purchased a baby bullet. If you don’t want to purchase one, you can use a blender or a magic bullet. I really wanted one because I love their containers. It makes it much easier, plus it included a recipe book that helped me get started. There are also tons of accessories that you can buy along with this. Like this, and this. I am consider buying this recipe book.
After the pears and apples were steamed/boiled, I peeled the skin off and sliced. I started with the apples and I added about 1/4-1/2 cup of water and got them done and then did the same with the pears. My banana and avocado wasn’t frozen yet so I used the magic bullet frozen ones and put those in. I let those sit until frozen solid. I brought them in the house and ran hot water on the bottom of the trays and they popped right out. I had a million breast milk bags left over from pumping, so I used those and labeled what the food was and the date made. I could fit about 5 ice cubes in one baggy. I loaded them up and put them back in the freezer.
I continued to do the same with all the foods I had. I either boiled, microwaved or smashed up the food depending on what it was. It was super easy and took me about an hour to finish them all. (not counting freezing time.)
