  1. Fill a small saucepan with water; add sweet potatoes. Bring water to a boil and cook sweet potatoes until tender enough to break apart with a fork, 25 to 30 minutes.
  2. Transfer sweet potatoes to a food processor or an immersion blender cup, reserving the cooking water. Blend sweet potatoes until smooth. Add 1/2 to 3/4 cup cooking water and blend until desired consistency is reached.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Breast milk or formula can be used instead of cooking water.
  • Please consult your pediatrician before starting your baby on solid foods.
