Avocado Baby Food

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Avocados from Mexico for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Did you know that babies can eat avocado?  When my kids were babies, I made their baby food, and some of their favorites included avocado.  The awesome thing about avocado in baby food is that it doesn’t have to be cooked. That made it so easy to throw into various recipes.  And because babies need a fair amount of fat in their diet, for brain development, I loved that they could get good fat from avocados. 

We frequently used Avocados from Mexico in our recipes, and I was thinking about the avocado baby food recipe’s I’d used and sent a friend some virtual avocado slices to ask if she had tried them with her son yet…

I thought I would share a couple of the avocado baby food recipes that we used, and my kids loved. 

Banana- Avocado Mash

Cut an avocado in half, remove the pit, and cut the meat out. Mash the meat with a fork, then mash a banana and add to the avocado mash.

You can use a blender, or food processor, to puree to desired consistency, but my little ones just loved it if I put it in one of those mesh baby food strainers for them to eat from. 

Baby Guac

Cut an avocado in half, remove the pit, and cut the meat out.  Mash the meat with a fork, set aside. 

Place a 1/4 cup Cheerios in a zipper bag, and crush  them.  Add plain yogurt and crushed cheerios to the avocado mash, until desired consistency.  You can add spices (i.e. garlic) to season, but my kids liked it without the spices.

Sweet Potato-cado Mash

1 small sweet potato (can substitute butternut squash puree if desired)
1 avocado, peeled

Bake the sweet potato in its skin until tender (30-45 minutes, depending on size and oven temp).
Cool, then remove the flesh from the skin and mash with the avocado.

My kids loved these recipes.  Of course, they get their avocado love from their mama!

  1. I thought I’d add… from my facebook post…. Andy’s now telling me he’s afraid to intro Jett to avocados so little because he’s allergic to them. I told him that I’m pretty sure that he’s just an odd ball, and Jett will love them!!!

  2. YUM YUM, I love it!

  3. My baby just started solids and I had not heard about feeding them avocado’s until recently. These recipes look great.
