If you love baby food, you will absolutely adore this recipe. If you don't, I suspect that you would still fall in love with the smooth, soft, gentle, and satisfying texture of this potage. It features chestnut, lotus seed, and yam, all of which are incredibly nourishing for our spleen, stomach, lung, and kidney. It is slightly warming and naturally a little sweet.
This recipe is also suitable for babies.

Soak the lotus seeds overnight. After soaking, remove the green center stem (“lotus hearts”) if any from the lotus seeds
Defreeze chestnuts if using frozen ones.
Cut the Chinese yams or sweet potato into chunks.
Add lotus seeds, chestnuts, goji, and Chinese yam in a medium-sized soup pot. Add just enough water to cover. If using tonic bag, add it here.
Cook slowly over medium heat until all the ingredients are cooked and tender. Take out the tonic bag after 15 minutes of cooking.
Drain any excess water from the cooked ingredients.
Use a blender, add milk with the cooked ingredients.
Mix evenly into a paste on soup/heat setting. You can adjust thickness to your own liking. Blend for at least 2-3 minutes to ensure the smooth texture.
