Milk allergy moms often ask for simple ways to get healthy fat into dairy-free kiddos.
And guacamole is great way!
Nutritionists often recommend avocado for our kids.
And while mine don’t love it plain,
simple, allergy-friendly guacamole is kid-approved!
Use this guacamole as chip dip, veggie dip, on sandwiches, or eat it plain!
We recently served it to company at our house.
And I kept hearing it was better than fresh guac at restaurants.
Sophisticated enough for grown-up’s,
but simple enough for my one-year-old niece.
She ate it by the spoonfuls.
Do you know if an avocado is ripe?
Press a finger gently into the neck area and if it gives just a little, it’s ripe.
No give, it’s not ripe yet.
Too much of a squishy give, and it’s too ripe.
Works for me every time.
If an avocado starts ripening before you’re ready to use it, put it in the refrigerator.
This buys a little more time!
How to cut an avocado?
Wash your ripe avocado first.
Cut your avocado into fourths, not through the pit.
Gently pull off the four peels.
Then pull the four segments gently off the pit.
If the avocado is the perfect ripeness per above, this method works every time!
Here’s the recipe!
