Tonight I decided to take our Baby Bullet on its maiden voyage!
I was debating between Broccoli and Sweet Potatoes, but opted for the yummier of the two for Kaleb's first "big boy" meal.
|Meet our star players.|
To make this most delicious of super food for baby, here is what you'll need:
|One sweet potato. Not a yam.|
|One baby bullet. We registered for ours when I was pregnant.|
|One cup of water.|
First step is to peal the sweet potato.
Quick and easy.
I then chopped up the sweet potato in to smallish cubes.
Let me tell you, that sucker was harder than I thought it would be... granted I used a bread knife...
|not quite cubes... more like "bits".|
|I used minimal water|
|Then used one cup of the boiled sweet potato water to reclaim some vitamins and reuse in the recipe.|
I added my cup of boiled water and my potato bits to the baby bullet.
|To activate the bullet, you push down and turn.|
|after about 3 seconds it had already reached a mushy consistency. But there were still too many lumps for my little one, so I pulsed (pushed down, but didn't lock) the blender four or five more times.|
So after just a few spins, everything had a nice, smooth "baby food" texture. Much more organic and "polished" look when compaired to mass produced, jar baby food.
|Then I filled up my little baby bullet containers.|
The little containers that come with the baby bullet are awesome because they are tiny little things that are perfect size for baby and they also have a little dial on the lid so you can remember what day of the month the food was made.
*Baby food will last only 3 days in the refrigerator, but up to 30 days in the freezer*
|See the little "1". This baby food was made on the first of this month!|
|They even have a handy little tray that holds all six of the containers.|
I had some food left over, so I put it in the frozen food tray that also comes with the baby bullet.
But now, the ultimate test.
|Would he eat it?|
|He seems intrigued...|
|...wait for it...|
Heres a quick little video of his first bites. He may look like hes not enjoying it sometimes, but he really it. :D
(Does the video look pinkish to anyone else? It looks pinkish to me.)
I had lots of fun documenting and making my baby his first "big boy" meal.
He took to it much faster then he did baby cereal, which is a good thing, right?
Hes just growing up so fast. And as happy as it makes me to see him grow and learn and become an even bigger little guy, its so bitter sweet.
Ok, I have to go cuddle with my sleeping baby now.
