This deliciously creamy baby food puree will take your little one on a fun culinary adventure, without ever leaving their highchair!
Sweet potatoes are one of my all-time favorite vegetables to puree for baby! Not only do I find that most baby’s love their naturally sweet taste and creamy texture, but sweet potatoes are loaded with essential nutrients for a growing baby. It’s a winning combo in my book!
In this recipe, we are going to roast the sweet potatoes to bring out their natural caramely-earthy goodness before we add in a pinch of mild curry powder and blend to a super light and creamy consistency.
Don’t be afraid to eat this delicious puree right alongside baby – it’s that good!

Original Post –
This is our second week of Mom Monday, you know recipes for our babies that are simple to make.
Recipes we can almost do in our sleep, or in most of our cases, recipes that we can do on very little sleep.
We have sweet potatoes with curry this week, or as I call it ‘sweetness with a kick’.
I made this puree at the same time as I made sweet potato fries for the rest of us. Happiness all around.
