Step 1

Preheat your oven to 400°F.

Step 2

Wash your sweet potato and place it on a baking sheet lined with foil in the oven (skin on).

Step 3

After about 30 minutes, test it with a knife. If the knife meets any resistance, it's not done. Give it another 10 minutes and try again. It's done when the knife goes through without resistance.

Step 4

Take the potato out of the oven and let it cool.

Step 5

Leave the skin on (it's full of yummy nutrients) and chop up the potato into medium sized chunks.

Step 6

Add the pieces to your blender/food processor and blend until very smooth. You may need to add some water to get a consistency thin enough for baby.

Step 7

Transfer to a bowl or freezer safe containers. Test out the temperature before serving it!

You can mix sweet potato puree with other veggies to make yummy combinations!
