This smooth and creamy Homemade Quinoa Baby Cereal has an earthy and robust taste and is loaded with protein, fiber, iron and magnesium. It’s great served as a meal itself or mixed with baby’s favorite fruit or vegetable puree.

  • 1 cup water broth, formula or breast milk
  • 1/2 cup quinoa see notes


  • In a small saucepan, bring the water to a boil. Add quinoa and stir. Reduce to a simmer, cover and cook for 12 minutes. Take off of heat, and let sit for 5 minutes.
  • Transfer all of the quinoa to a blender or food processor and puree for 2 minutes for a completely smooth puree or pulse for 1 minute for a chunky puree. If puree is too thick, you may need to add in additional liquid. Start by adding in 1 tablespoon of liquid in at a time until you reach your desired consistency. I had to add in 5 tablespoons to get the perfect consistency for me.
  • Serve or spoon into freezer storage trays and freeze for future use.


Note on Quinoa: I used a trio blend of quinoa for this recipe, but you can use any color quinoa that you would like.
