How to Make EASY Baby Food

by Kara Millsap


  • Hand Blender ($25)
  • 4 Avocado
  • 1 Pounds Bag of cubed mangos (Trader Joes)
  • 4 Sweet potatoes or yams
  • ΒΌ Cups Water
  • 4 Ice cube trays
  • Plastic wrap or lids for trays
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Gather your supplies and preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

    Step 2

    Poke holes in and place potatoes directly on rack to bake for 45 minutes. Add a lined cookie sheet underneath to catch sugars.

    Step 3

    Split the skins with a knife and they'll fall right off.

    Step 4

    Cube two of the potatoes and place in the plastic canister that comes with the hand blender. Add about 1/4 cup of water.

    Step 5

    Blend until smooth. No chunks!!

    Step 6

    Scoop into clean ice cube tray.

    Step 7

    Cover the tray with a lid if you have one or two layers of plastic wrap. Place in freezer. Use within two to three weeks.

    Step 8

    For the avocado/mango mixture use 2 avocados and 1/2 the bag of mangos at a time. The silver tool is an avocado cutter from Crate&Barrel that I highly recommend. No mess!

    Step 9

    Blend avocados and mango chunks till smooth.

    Step 10

    Scoop into trays, cover, and freeze. At 6 months my daughter ate 2 warmed cubes at a feeding. Now at 9 months she has three.
