Nutrient Dense Baby Foods: Vanilla Custard | www.homemademommy.net

Welcome to my eighth edition of my Nutrient Dense Baby Foods series for Homemade Mommy!  Last week I discussed adding pureed fruits to your baby’s diet.  This week I am explaining how to make a nutrient dense vanilla custard for your baby!

Making your own baby food is simple and saves you several dollars on both grocery AND medical bills!  Feeding your baby the most nutritious foods without the added preservatives or other chemicals is going to help keep your baby healthy.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup organic whole milk (raw milk if available, coconut milk is also an option, I have also used goat milk.)
  • 1 cup pastured organic cream (raw cream if available)
  • 6 egg yolks (pasture-fed (why pastured eggs?) hens raised on flax meal, fish meal, or insects since they will contain higher levels of DHA. (source) Learn more about feeding your baby egg yolks here.
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • Pinch of stevia powder (optional as sweetener)
  • Butter (for buttering ramekin dishes)

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl (these bowls are awesome).
  3. Pour mixture into buttered ramekin dishes.
  4. Fill a Pyrex dish with about a half an inch of water.
  5. Place ramekin dishes in Pyrex dish.
  6. Cook for about 1 hour.  Serve when cooled.

Next week I’ll continue this series about how you can save time and money and still make healthy, nutrient dense baby food!

    Can you bake this in one larger dish? Or would it be tough to get the middle cooked? Or maybe 6oz jelly/canning jars? I don’t have any ramikins, but would love to make this for my vanilla loving boys=)
