Why I Love This Recipe

I insisted on avocado being the first food our baby had. It has fat, lots of fat, healthy fat. Fat is good for a baby. How else is she going achieve triple thigh rolls?

The idea of avocado for baby food is wonderful. It requires absolutely no cooking, roasting, steaming. Just mashing. Depending on how thin you want the puree, this will determine how much milk you add to it. If you want it thick and chunky like avocado, then don't add any milk. If you want it thin and smooth, add milk.

Since this was Cheek's first food, it needed to be extra smooth and a little thin. She gobbled it up. I was impressed. Avocado has a mild flavor, but a distinct flavor. I didn't like avocado until I was an adult, so I had no expectations of her liking it.

Ingredients You'll Need

3 medium, ripe avocados
1/4-/2 cup breastmilk (or formula)


scoop the flesh out of the avocados and add it to a blender or food processor. Process, slowly streaming in breastmilk until the desired consistency is reached. Spoon into ice cube trays and freeze. Just thaw out when ready to eat. You can heat for quicker thawing, but it isn' necessary.

I heard the avocado can turn brown when you freeze it. However, I didn't experience this. So while it may happen, it didn't for me.
