Place sweet potato (1 small - medium sweet potato, peeled and sliced 2cm rounds) on baking tray, drizzle with oil (1 tablespoon) and bake at 170°C/fan/190°C/Gas 5 for 15 – 20 mins, turn once halfway.
Meanwhile, wrap salmon (130g) in tin foil and oven cook at 170°C fan/190°C/Gas 5 for 12-15 mins - allow to cook in tin foil, keep any juice for blending.
Place spinach (80g) in microwaveable container with lid rested on top in microwave and cook on high for approx. 1 min, keep any liquid for blending.
Blend salmon, skin removed, sweet potato, spinach and cream cheese (20g) in for 3-5 minutes with 300ml water - see below.
This recipe was blended with 300ml water to achieve a pancake batter consistency which yielded 600ml total blend (10 x 60ml syringes) however you may find you need slightly less fluid to blend as you become confident administering blends. Always sieve blends until you are confident you are achieving a completely smooth blend with no bits.
Once blended, this meal can be frozen and used within one month. Defrost thoroughly and bring to room temperature before use. Water may need to be added to reach a pancake batter consistency. Consume with 24hrs of defrosting.
• You may wish to include the salmon skin in your blend, it contains the same nutrition as the flesh but ensure you remove any scales before cooking.
