Stars:  Coconut milk provides Lauric Acid, an essential fatty acid with antibacterial qualities, which is also found in breast milk. Butternut squash provides significant amounts of potassium, important for bone health, and vitamin B6, essential for the proper functioning of both the nervous and immune systems.

Is the portion of squash right on this recipe? 2 large butternut squash will fill way more than 4 pouches? When I do 1 large butternut squash for baby food I can get an almost full vitamix of puree?
