Both carrots and mangos are packed full of nutrients that are essential for growth and development, plus their flavors surprisingly complement each other well.

Ingredients:

  • 2 long stem carrots, peeled and cooked until soft
  • 1 large mango, fully ripe and peeled

This recipe is so smooth and slightly sweet that your baby just might think it is dessert! The best part is, honeydew offers lots of Vitamin C, Vitamin A and other essential nutrients.
