Sweet Potato Parfait

 

Sweet potatoes are one of the healthiest foods for us to eat regardless of age.

They are great at regulating blood sugar and contain high levels of vitamin A (important for children).

Since they are high in antioxidants (especially beta carotene) I added turkey sausage to aid in its absorption.

My daughter love chewing on fruit since she's teething so I try to include at least one with each meal.

Ingredients:
  • 2 Large sweet potatoes
  • Unsweetened applesauce
  • 3 Turkey Breakfast Sausages
  • ½ cup almond milk (I prefer using almond milk when cooking but any milk is fine)
  • ½ Tbsp dried chopped onions
  • Your little one’s favorite spices or veggies
  To Make:
  1. After thoroughly scrubbing the potatoes wrap in plastic wrap and microwave for 8 minutes on high (flip over halfway through.
  2. Cook turkey sausage according to package directions.
  3. Once cooked (and cooled) put potatoes in mini food processor (or blender) and combine with onion, spices, almond milk, and ½ of applesauce.
  4. Spoon one teaspoon of applesauce into each serving cup.
  5. Then add one heaping spoonful of sweet potato mixture and 4-6 pieces of finely diced turkey sausage.
  6. Repeat layers in same order – applesauce, sweet potatoes, and turkey sausage.
  7. Top with any leftover applesauce.
  8. Freeze/refrigerate until ready to serve and enjoy!
