Homemade Baby Food with the Baby Bullet
*This is a guest post by Meg & Keith Lex of Little Lex Adventures.
We were so excited to learn that we would have the chance to review the Baby Bullet and we were eager to see how it would compare to the food processor that we have been using previously to make our baby food.
Right out of the box, you can see that the Baby Bullet is very similar to the Magic Bullet, but clearly geared towards parents and babies, thanks to the smiley faces on all of the components. We’ve had luck with our Magic Bullet at home, so we expected the same good results from the Baby Bullet.
The Baby Bullet came with one container with individual cells that could be used for freezing baby food, and six containers with lids that are perfect for storing baby food in the fridge if you know you’ll be using it within five days.
After washing all of the parts, we let them dry while we started preparing the food.
Because we were running low on sweet potatoes, we decided to make a new batch for our trial run with the Baby Bullet.
We washed the sweet potatoes, wrapped them in foil, and put them in the oven for 45 minutes or so at 350 degrees. When the potatoes were soft, we unwrapped them and let them cool. Once cooled, we peeled off the skin, which comes off very easily after all of the steaming it had done while wrapped in foil.
We cut the sweet potatoes into chunks and placed them into the Baby Bullet. The directions advise that you add a little bit of water to the food so it blend more smoothly, but we chose to mix in some breast milk from the fridge.
After adding a few tablespoons, we secured the lid, and let the Baby Bullet do its thing.
Only, it didn’t really do its thing as well as we thought it would.
We checked the directions and read that there was a special way to shake the Baby Bullet in order to help all of the food incorporate a little better. So we gave it a jostle, and voila, the food began to blend much more smoothly.
We had to shake it a few more times and stir it with a spoon to make sure that it was really mashing everything completely, but eventually all of the sweet potatoes were blended smooth enough to be baby-ready.
Later that night, we had our 8 month old twins try the sweet potatoes. Everyone seemed pleased! We will definitely be using the Baby Bullet again with other fruits, vegetables, and recipes from the Baby Bullet cookbook.
