Sweet Potatoes for Baby
- 3 small sweet potatoes or 1 large
- food processor
- breast milk (no, seriously... it's an ingredient :))
Bake for 45 minutes and let cool. Once cool, peel and pop into the food processor. The skins literally fall off after you pick at them. Process for about 30 seconds to one minute and scrape the edges of the bowl to make sure everything is processed.
Once everything is processed very well and there are no lumps whatsoever place the potatoes into the strainer and press through into a bowl. I used a small spatula to scrape off the potatoes on the other end of the strainer. Discard the lumps, bits, and strings left over in the strainer.
Mix 1-2 tablespoons of the sweet potatoes with enough milk to thin out to the right consistency and serve to baby.
Store left over sweet potatoes in air tight containers for refrigeration (lasts 2-3 days). Or use a freezer method. Do not store with breast milk. We're considering buying these when we start doing large batches of food. But we want to make sure E likes what we serve him before making huge batches :)
All stored and ready for tomorrow and Monday
