Guacamole for babies 8 months and up
Guacamole is a cinch to make and easy to tweak according to your baby's tastes. When your baby is ready, add finely chopped cherry tomatoes or peeled, seeded cucumber to the silky, smashed avocado.
1 small avocado
1 teaspoon minced fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon plain Greek yogurt
Cut the avocado in half lengthwise. Peel and pit the avocado and cut it into chunks.
Add to a bowl and, using a fork, mash it into a smooth or chunky puree, depending on your baby's age and chewing ability.
Add the cilantro and yogurt and squeeze the lime over the mixture. Stir to combine and serve.
1. For a smoother puree, transfer the avocado to a blender or food processor and process until smooth.
2. Refrigerate the guacamole for up to one day. (Some discoloration may occur. To prevent discoloration, squeeze the lime over the top without stirring it in.
