I’m going to go over two different ways to make sweet potato puree for your baby the first one will be for a baby in the age range of 6 to 8 months it’ll be much thinner and then I’ll show you a way to make it a little bit thicker texture wise for a baby eight months plus so these.
Sweet potatoes have been prepared previously they were placed on a parchment lined baking sheet and baked in a 350 degree oven for about 35 to 45 minutes until fork tender and.
Should just be able to easily put the fork in and remove it so you don’t need to peel them.
In advance this is actually a very very easy way to prepare sweet potatoes without getting messy the skins will just slide right off and you can place the flesh inside a food processor or blender you want to break it apart to make it a.
Little easier to turn and you’ll add just a little bit of water because sweet potatoes are starchy it will help the blending process and then.
You’ll puree this for about 20 to 35 seconds so you can see that this makes a very very nice smooth consistency for a baby that’s just brand new.
To eating and needs the puree extra thin so next I’m going to review a puree that will be better for a little.
Bit older maybe seven or eight months plus the same thing you can just slide the skins right off the sweet potato and discard them and you can place it into a mixing bowl and use your potato masher and loosely mash it to break it up into pieces that an older baby will be able.
To chew and consume and then you can place it in your serving dish and it’s ready to go.
So you can see we have two different sweet potato puree is perfect for a little bit younger eater and a more advanced one.
