Yams are often confused with sweet potatoes and ironically enough, are sweeter than sweet potatoes. Although there is a world of information out there to help show you the difference, it can can still be tricky to identify the two as there is a whole world of different varieties for each tuber, in a range of colors. Our advice? Ask your local farmer or produce section manager…Either way, don’t miss out on giving your little one this sweet, energy-filled veggie! Although we’ve added banana for some diversity, you could easily skip adding any other ingredients and simply serve a delicious yam puree.
Fills one 4 oz Sili Squeeze
3 oz yams, cooked until tender (skin removed)
1 TB hempseed oil
1 TB banana
While the yams are warm, but not hot, puree all the ingredients until smooth. Serve warm or room temperature.
