Get the recipe: Sweet Potato, Banana and Cinnamon Baby Food Puree
- 1 sweet potato peeled and cubed
- 1 banana
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- In a medium saucepan, bring 2 inches of water to a boil. In a steamer basket, add in the sweet potato cubes, place basket over boiling water and cover. Steam for 12-15 minutes or until all ingredients are tender when pricked with a fork. Remove from heat and let cool slightly. Reserve steamer water.
- Transfer the sweet potatoes to a blender or food processor and add in the banana and cinnamon. Add in 1/4 cup liquid (steamer water, breast milk, formula, stock or water).
- Puree all of the ingredient at high speed for 1-2 minutes or until you reach your desired consistency. Add in additional liquid in 1/4 cup increments if puree is too thick. I had to add in 1/2 cup of reserved steamer water to the puree pictured above.
