When all else fails, I go to the sweet potato because Kula Baby always loves them. This is a great recipe for the young babies out there. For older children, this recipe makes a great side dish. Spinach adds the green, while avocado adds a healthy omega-6 fat. And the sweet potato makes it super…duper…yummy. You can change this recipe up to meet your own child’s preference. Lately we’ve been leaving out the avocado and mixing in a little coconut oil or olive oil instead. Get creative!
1 small sweet potato, baked for 45 min to an hour depending on size (or peel, chop and steam in steamer basket if in a hurry)
1/2 cup fresh organic spinach
1/4 cup milk or rice milk
1/4 of an avocado (optional)
Butter and salt (optional and use when age appropriate if desired)
Add baked sweet potato, raw organic spinach, avocado and milk to blender and mix to desired consistency. Add a little salt and butter if desired for older children.
