Homemade Sweet Potato Puree
2 medium-sized sweet potatoes
Water (for steaming)
milk, or water (for thinning)
Preparation: Wash and peel the sweet potatoes. Cut them into small, uniform-sized pieces.
Steaming: Place the sweet potato pieces in a steamer basket over boiling water or in a microwave-safe dish with a little water. Steam until the sweet potatoes are tender. This usually takes around 15-20 minutes.
Pureeing: Once the sweet potatoes are fully cooked and soft, transfer them to a blender or food processor. Blend until you achieve a smooth consistency. Add breast milk, formula, or water in small increments if you prefer a thinner consistency.
Cooling: Allow the puree to cool down before serving to your baby. You can store the puree in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or freeze it in ice cube trays for convenient portions.
Feeding: When ready to feed your baby, warm the desired amount of sweet potato puree and test the temperature before serving. Feed your baby using a spoon in small, appropriate portions.
