Making nutritious baby food.
Simple, cost effective, satisfying.
Today I used 2 small yams, a handful of fresh baby spinach and 1/3 of a large banana.
It made 5 full containers of baby food with a few teaspoons extra.
It took me about 15 minutes from start to finish.
Peel, chop and boil the yams until tender.
Strain yams, reserve most of the water to use later if needed.
Toss yams into your food processor. I love my Ninja.
Once you achieve the consistency you desire, place into small containers. I use cleaned out baby food containers and jars. I only filled 2 containers and left the rest of the yam mush in my Ninja to add additional ingredients to.
Like fresh baby spinach. (I added some of the reserved boil water here.)
And then for the last 2 containers I added a 1/3 of a large banana to the mix.
And placed the leftovers right into her bowl for lunch. I mixed it with some baby oatmeal cereal.
And she approves. :)
So, I now have 3 varieties of baby food to chose from in my fridge.
