{Tiny Tot Tuesdays} Homemade Organic Baby Avocado

Pin It
Avocados are like bananas in the sense that they are extremely easy to prepare for babies. No prior prep work is needed--you just scoop out the flesh and mash it up. The only downside is that once cut, avocados don't store very well. It's a good thing Chris and I love guacamole, because we always whip some up with the avocado that Bradley doesn't eat. We don't waste food in this household :)

Printable Recipe


  • 1 ripe organic avocado
Wash avocado under cold water to remove bacteria.

Cut the avocado in half lengthwise around the pit. Twist to break in half. Remove the pit and scoop out the flesh. Mash the avocado well with a fork until there are no visible lumps.

If your baby doesn't like texture, throw the avocado in a food processor and pulse until smooth.

If your baby does not like avocado plain or if you want to thin out the texture, add a little breast milk or formula to the avocado to add a flavor they already know.

Mashed avocado does not store in the refrigerator very well, so I recommend using or freezing it right away. You can freeze the avocado for up to one month.

*Consult with your pediatrician before feeding your baby solid foods and to see what amount/type of food you should give your child.
