Author: Little Green Pouch Test Kitchen, Chef Melissa
When to Introduce: 12+ months (Consult your pediatrician about the introduction of nuts into your child’s diet)
1 Sweet Potato, steamed until soft and cut into 1" thick slices
2 oz oatmeal (I make organic oatmeal in batches & freeze in 1 oz cubes)
Organic Whole Milk (approx 1 cup)
1 Tblespn Organic Almond Butter
4-6 oz of vanilla yogurt (just about any flavor works!)
Directions: Add Sweet Potato, oatmeal and half the milk to blender & puree. Next add banana, almond butter & yogurt & puree while slowing adding milk until you get the thickness you desire.
Modifications: Substitute cow's milk with soy or almond milk & the regular yogurt with soy or coconut milk yogurt for a dairy-free version!
Servings: Fills approximately 2.5 Little Green Pouches
Stars: Sweet potatoes are an awesome Super Food that is high in Vitamin A, beta carotene, potassium and contain a good amount of Vitamin E, calcium and folate. Oats are high in fiber, calcium, protein and vitamin B. The milk adds calcium and bananas contain potassium and fiber and are high in Vitamin B6, Vitamin C and Vitamin B2. Almond butter is rich in antioxidants and a great source of protein!
UPDATE: Today I substituted organic peanut butter for almond butter and peach yogurt for vanilla and added an ounce of spinach and a tablespoon of chia seeds and it was so good! Made one for myself and one for my daughter :)
