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 :)
- 1 ripe organic avocado
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.
