Sweet Potato Coconut Puree

Share

Kenya could eat a whole sweet potato if I handed it to him. Being that his tiny little hand couldn't hold the whole thing up, mashed sweet potatoes seem like a better choice. In my quest to find new ingredients that will tempt his taste buds I realized that he hadn't tried coconut milk. Sweet and creamy, it adds body and depth to the puree. Add a touch of cinnamon, yummy delicious.

Ingredients

  • 2 medium yams, washed
  • 1/3 cup coconut milk (full fat or light)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Preparation

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. 2. Poke several holes in the sweet potatoes with a fork.
  3. 3. Bake for an hour (I put them on a piece of tin foil so they don’t drip all over the oven).
  4. 4. When sweet potatoes are cool to the touch peel off the skin and scoop insides into a food processor with remaining ingredients.
  5. 5. Puree until smooth.
  6. 6. Cool and serve.
  7. *Place in Baby Cubes and freeze.

    Just made this for my daughter (8 months). I scooped out what I thought was a huge serving, and she just kept opening up her mouth for more! My husband and I tried it–it tastes like pie! A keeper for the baby food file!

    I’ve been making this for my son for quite some time now, and he’s always loved it. Now that he’s 17 months and moved well past simple purees, we still like to make this (minus the cinnamon) and mix it up with tuna fish, instead of mayo. I’m a vegetarian, so I can’t attest to to the taste, but baby (and husband) agree that it’s yummy!

    we only have white sweet potatos here in south africa (flesh is white)… would this recipe still taste just as good with those?
