  • 2 lbs sweet potatoes
  • 1/4-1/2 cup water


  • Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Thoroughly wash your sweet potatoes.
  • Wrap each sweet potato individually with aluminum foil.
  • Place your sweet potatoes on a pan and put them in the oven.
  • Bake for 1 to 2 hours, or until potatoes are soft to the touch.
  • Remove potatoes from foil and let cool.
  • Scoop out insides and place in a blender (Vitamix) or food processor with 2 TBS water.
  • Blend until smooth, adding more water if necessary.
  • Scoop puree into a silicone individual brownie pan or silicone ice cube tray with individual square compartments and freeze for at least 4 hours.
  • Remove squares from the pan and place in a plastic bag labeled "sweet potatoes."


To feed to your baby just reheat the desired number of squares in the microwave for 1 minute (then let cool to a palatable temperature for your baby)! You can also let sit in the fridge or at room temperature to thaw. But who has time for that?
