Fall superpower baby food puree
Let’s talk about this Fall Superpower Puree!
It’s pretty much the most deliciously smooth puree I have ever tasted! It’s sweet, earthy and spicy without being overpowering and is full of sweet potatoes, persimmons and egg yolk.
Wait…. egg yolk? In a baby food puree?????
I know, threw you for a loop didn’t I?
Believe it or not, my Avocado + Egg Yolk recipe is always one of my top 10 puree recipes! Egg yolks and avocados are amazing first foods for baby! They are almost a perfect meal. But get this, sweet potatoes, persimmons and egg yolks are also amazing first foods for baby, and they taste way better! Like in, I was eating this puree while drinking my forth cup of coffee, because it was sooooooo good! It tasted like fall. And as someone that is just starting to like eggs, this is a very strong statement to make.
Before you completely blow me off, let me tell you why eggs are good for baby.
nutrients in this puree
Egg yolks – full of amazing nutrients like choline, good cholesterol, iron and vitamin D. Not to mention that pasture-fed hens have eggs that are full of omega-3 fatty acids. Both the cholesterol and the omega-3 are essential for baby’s mental development.
Sweet Potatoes – are loaded with vitamin A, E, potassium, beta carotene and fiber.
Persimmons – filled with vitamin A, C, and B-complex and minerals such as potassium and manganese, persimmons also contain an anti-cancer and anti-tumor compound called Betulinic acid.
how to make this baby food puree
To make this recipe, I used the Babymoov Nutribaby, because it not only steams and purees produce, but it also cooks eggs for you at the same time. It’s cool like that.
It also does about a million other cool things – heats bottles, defrosts purees, heats purees and sterilizes all your bottles and even pump parts. I am so wishing I had this during my pumping days! Game changer.
Let’s get started- we hard boil (or hard steam) some eggs and lightly steam a sweet potato and persimmon. Since persimmons are such a seasonal produce, you can also use a pear, apple or even a banana in this recipe. Because we are using the Nutribaby, these steps all happen at once, giving you 15 minutes of free time!
When the timer goes off, and we peel ourselves off the couch, it’s only about 4 more minutes of work before this puree is ready. We peel some eggs and save the white part for some egg sandwiches, toss everything in the blender and puree until smooth.
Easy as can be.
