One zucchini = Five baby bullet servings (10)oz
One sweet potato = Ten baby bullet servings (20)oz
One cup of peas = Four baby bullet servings (8)oz
One squash = Ten baby bullet servings (20)oz
(These are my vegetables of choice, but feel free to try others)
Step 1: Start by cooking the vegetable/fruit either by steaming, baking, or boiling.
(Steaming maintains the most nutrients)
Step 2: Take the cooked vegetable or fruit and place them in the preferred blender. Use breast milk or plain water if you would like to thin the food.
Step 3: Set your machine to puree or grind and then begin to mash. As you are pureeing or blending, add the plain water or breast milk.
(Blending without adding any liquid is also a good option (which I did, and then just added the breast milk once ready to serve.)
Step 4: Once you have a nice liquid baby food puree you will then transfer the puree to ice cube trays for freezing/storing. Fill each cube with the puree, as though you were filling the tray to make ice cubes.
Step 5: Cover the tray with plastic wrap and put it in the freezer.
(Each cube is equal to approx. 1 ounce of food)
Step 6: Once the cubes of puree have set and are frozen (about 2 hours,) take the trays out of the freezer and transfer cubes to freezer bags. Be sure to label the bag with the date of preparation as well as the type of food. The baby food cubes should be used within three months of freezing.
Step 7: Enjoy watching your baby get messy!
