Baby Food: Blueberries & Yams
I stumbled on this food combination one day and found it actually really delicious as an adult. Stir in some plain whole milk yogurt and it's fantastic. I'm so inspired by this flavor combination that I plan to someday make a sweet potato pie with a blueberry glaze and whipped cream.
Blueberry & Yam Puree
-1 large yam or sweet potato
-1 bag frozen organic blueberries
1. Pre-heat oven to 350°.
2. Wash yam and poke a few holes in it to allow steam to escape. Place on baking sheet and bake for 1-1.5 hours or until soft.
3. Put blueberries and 1/4-1/2 cup water in microwave-safe bowl. Thaw blueberries partially in microwave. Drain blueberries and reserve water.
4. Combine yam innards and partially-thawed blueberries in blender. Use extra water from blueberries to thin puree as needed.
5. Spread in ice-cube tray and freeze.
