Baby food recipe! and #BrotherMax #WIN

|By Elana| Free Stuff!, Home, To Eat

When my baby arrived on 19 March this year, I never thought that by now I would be introducing solids or even be writing about the simplest recipes ever!  I got advice from other moms, my amazing breastfeeding Clinic in Panorama, and then, my Little Esther Beth and I found our own way through it.  Her favourite is sweet potato.  It’s so easy to make.  Heres my recipe :)

Sweet Potato for my baby: 

Wash the whole lot thoroughly.


Place in an oven dish. And in an oven preheated at 180 degrees.

Place in the oven and forget about it. Literally.  I find, the longer it’s in the oven, the naturally sweeter it becomes. Don’t add anything.  After 2 hours remove and forget about it again :)


Cut in half and scoop flesh out.  It should be soft like soft mash by now.


Place in a blender with a bit of cooled down boiled water.




Scoop into containers and freeze.  I use the Brother Max baby food containers. You can use anything.  Even freeze them as ice blocks and defrost them when needed.

To defrost, I place mine in the microwave as a ” 200g” serving.  They come out the write temperature and then we feast.


There 's never any Sweet Potato left!

    Love sweet potato myself, and I also prefer it slow-baked in the oven, but then I add butter (bad I know, but oh so delicious!)
